New look hockey pitches for the Borough

15 December 2016

Following an investment of almost £400,000, the new look hockey pitches at Valley Leisure Centre and Marks Arena, Antrim Forum are now complete.  

The pitches, both of which had reached the end of their useful life, now boast new state-of-the-art synthetic carpets, shock pads and carpeted kick boards. The drainage system at Antrim Forum was also replaced and new access ramps installed.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor John Scott commented; “Both pitches are extremely popular and well used by local hockey clubs and neighbouring schools. Replacing the pitch surfaces and providing facilities to meet demand will support the sustainability and future development of hockey for many of our local clubs and users within the Borough.”

If your school or club would be interested in using the pitches, contact Antrim Forum T. 028 9446 4131 or Valley Leisure Centre T. 028 9086 1211
