Hear from our visitors

Our venues deliver a programme of events and initiatives designed to break down barriers, increase participation in sports and positively impact the lives of people from across the region and beyond.


From award winning mental health initiatives and tennis programmes for wheelchair users, people with learning disabilities and Blind and partially sighted individuals, we work with partners to create opportunities for all corners of the community.

Discover more about our programmes and hear first-hand from those whose lives have been transformed by our world class venues, including local school children who have been catapulted from the playground to the international stage.
