FORMER MANCHESTER METROPOLITAN UNIVERSITY – ALSAGER SPORTS PITCHES
McArdle Sport Tec were delighted to work with David Wilson Homes developing the former MMU Campus in Alsager.
The land at the MMU which is now owned by David Wilson Homes redeveloped the site to create a number of new build housing and the provision of new sports pitches and amenities at the council owned ‘Alsager Leisure Centre’
McArdle Sport Tec installed two new artificial sports pitches and a further five natural grass pitches. The new FIH National Standard sand dressed hockey pitch plus a Full Size FIFA Quality Standard 3G Artificial Sports Pitch for football are now complete with associated fencing and flood lighting; all 7 pitches costing nearly £1.5 Million pounds. David Wilson Homes have also constructed a new pavilion, changing rooms and car parking.
Councillor Don Stockton, cabinet member for regeneration, said: “This is fantastic news for Alsager as it will see new playing pitches and a range of sports and leisure amenities provided for the residents of the town. “The council is committed to providing quality leisure and sports facilities as part of our policy to help our residents to live long and healthy lives. “With the council’s independent trust Everybody Sport and Recreation taking over management of the facilities, this is expected to meet the requirements set out by Sport England to ensure the town’s leisure and sports offer is protected and sustained.”
“It was fantastic to be involved in such spectacular transformation, the grounds for the former Manchester Metropolitan University have been completely redeveloped creating an amazing community sports area for both hockey and football ”
