Hub Clubs the regeneration of Team Sport
Tracey Francis, Director of Sport & Leisure, LK2 Architects
It would appear that traditional team sports are at best static, and have been for some time, it’s a cause for concern given the positive contribution team sports can make to the communities they serve. People are moving toward activities that better suit their busy lifestyles, purse, and where ability or the need to win doesn’t really factor.
The fabric of our largest team sports Football, Cricket, Rugby, Hockey, have traditionally been built around the ‘pavilion & pitch’ and are either leased or owned. Maintenance, sinking funds, and customer expectations will drive a new demand led approach. This presentation will explore the concept of rationalising team sports and developing multi sport hubs as a demand led solution to creating a ‘family friendly’ environment.
