Improvement works to leisure centre football facilities begin

Residents in Watford will soon benefit from upgraded football facilities at their local leisure centre, following a £200,000 investment project.

Watford Leisure Centre Woodside, managed by Everyone Active in partnership with Watford Borough Council, is conducting improvement works, which started at the beginning of this month and are due to conclude at the end of October.

The substantial investment, made by Everyone Active, will include upgrading the existing AstroTurf to new 3G pitches, and the addition of new goals allowing for 5-aside, 7-aside and 11-aside.

Gary Foley, Everyone Active’s contract manager, said: “Our football facilities are hugely popular so we’re excited to be able to give the community an even better playing experience.

To celebrate the new facilities, we will be hosting an open day where members of the public can try them out for free. Watch this space for more information.”

Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor, added: “We are so happy to be partnering with Everyone Active on this important project. We have seen this summer the unique way in which people can be brought together with sport and I look forward to seeing these new improvements do the same.”
