SPORTS SCENE – March 2022


Facilities for all the Chalke Valley

It has been great seeing the new basketball equipment being well used and the basketballs returned to the storage net ready for the next family to enjoy. Thank you.

We hope that March will see us finalise arrangements for our next major project. Funds are already in place following a successful grant application last year from Wiltshire Council, but we put on hold awaiting improved weather. Watch this space for full details.

We are also now working hard to put a scheme together for replacement floodlights for the Multi-Sports Court. Applications for grants have been submitted to a number of organisations as we need to raise £17,000. The lights are 20+ years old and have reached the end of their economic life. Replacement parts are increasingly difficult to get hold of as they are no longer made. The lights themselves are not as efficient as modern units and, with the price of electricity rocketing, we need to reduce running costs. One exciting part of this is to work with the Cranborne Chase AONB and their International Dark Skies Reserve Project Officer to see if we can reduce the impact of sports floodlighting in the Reserve.

With the night’s drawing out and the weather improving, we will be providing a second set of football posts for the youngsters to come and enjoy a kick about on the sports field. If you are looking for a great healthy birthday party, why not hire us for a 5V5 party?

The new Thursday afternoon 2.00-4.00 short mat bowls session has now started, new players are very welcome, and the Monday evening session takes place as normal.  Petanque will be looking to move back outdoors on Friday evenings later in the month. Tennis mix-ins continue Sunday mornings and Thursday evenings, and the Club will be competing in the Salisbury Sarum and Shaftesbury Leagues and are looking for new players. Pickleball takes place Wednesday evenings on the outdoor sports courts, and table tennis is on Sunday evenings. If you are interested in playing Table Tennis during the daytime, please contact Tom at the table tennis club.

Cricket will be starting in May.

We also welcome the Chalke Valley Play School on a Tuesday afternoon.

…and remember… If you have a party or celebration in the year ahead or need a venue for an event, the Sports Centre Hall is a comfortable space with a linked kitchen and is available to hire. We have hosted some great children’s parties and have contacts for party organisers if you want to take the stress out of the day and enjoy it with your children.
