Fantastic Turn Out for Ottery's New Outdoor Pitch!
The fabulous new all-weather synthetic pitch, owned by East Devon District Council and run by us here at LED Leisure Management Ltd had a fantastic opening ceremony with the international hockey star Giselle Ansley!
A £113,000 grant from Sport England combined with funding from East Devon, us here at LED and The Kings School includes many improvements including better drainage, a new shock pad and back boards and increased height fences. There is now plenty of additional off-pitch storage, as well as new hockey goals and football goals, with wheels to make them easier to move. The dugouts for managers and subs have also been relocated and improved
The pitch itself has also been upgraded to a much higher standard, particularly for hockey, and can now be divided into three football pitches and two mini hockey pitches, making it much more versatile for school use
The day was a great success thanks to the support of everyone involved - even the sun came and made an appearance!
