We aim to bring a full concrete freesports facility for users of all ages. It will help pro social and healthy behaviour whilst decreasing crime in the area.

Royal Leamington Spa Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

We are an organisation dedicated to providing the area of Warwickshire with a substantial freesports facility which would benefit riders of all sports and ages.
The project will continue to run for as long as possible, with a full skate facility being the out product. After the facility has been built money will be acquired to maintain the facility.

All ages, races, both sexes, freesport riders and those who enjoy watching, graffiti artists, locals who feel freesports on the streets is a hazard, and finally local governing bodies who complain about the costs of having to resurface and paint et cetera local facilities due to freesports riders.

We have a three part plan for the project, going from a mini ramp all the way to a full scale park and we hope we can use Space Hive to propel us further forward in achieving our goal.

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide foundations for the skatepark whilst we apply for funding which will allow extensions.

Why it's a great idea:

This project will cater for the ECM outcomes: Be Healthy, by providing and substantial sports facility and a water tap to ensure there is no dehydration; Make a Positive Contribution, by providing a pro social activity which encourages all participants to engage and has no boundaries on skill level which my deter a person from a team game, and Stay Safe by ensuring that within this positive environment they will be deterred from seeking out antisocial behaviour and feel a collective belonging to an active, and positive culture.

The project will benefit all ages, races, both sexes, freesport riders and those who enjoy watching, graffiti artists, locals who feel freesports on the streets is a hazard, and finally local governing bodies who complain about the costs of having to resurface and paint et cetera local facilities due to freesports riders.

Steps to get it done:

  • We already have permission to build so will just send the project out to tender.

This will benefit all freesports riders in the Warwickshire area (skate, BMX, rollerblades et cetera), and will keep them off the streets which means they will not be causing trouble on privately owned properties such as the Town Hall’s stairs or the Victoria Park paddling pool. Both males and females are able to use the facility as there is no gender barrier where freesports are concerned. As well as that, age is not a limit. People of all ages can use the facility and those that are older are always willing to help train those that are young; the older riders can sometimes be professionals, scouring the country for new and innovative places to ride, films videos, take photos and even take place in competitions.
It would also help bring Leamington up to date culturally; we are falling behind other communities with our lack of modern facilities. In Leamington lawn tennis was invented, we hold the World Women’s Bowls competition so why can't we produce world class riders too?
