Living Space Football Pitch in Blackfriars

What we did...

Blackfriars Settlement approached Schools360 and Playfiveaside after a recommendation from Bethwin Adventure Playground. The idea was similar to Bethwin Adventure Playground in that they had a desolate space in need of redevelopment.

The process was very quick and painless due to existing business in the local area, it was agreed:

The pitch must be a multi sports surface allowing for all sports to be played.
A Roof net was to be fitted.
New goals were required.
A member of staff was required on site at all times.
All maintenance was to be carried out by Schools360 and Playfiveaside for a given period.
Schools360 and Playfiveaside to assist in after school coaching delivery.

A new 5 a side football pitch was developed but in addition to this greater lets were recorded inside the building due to mass exposure of the new facility in the heart of Waterloo .

Schools360 and Playfiveaside continues to run and manage this facility 9am-10pm Monday-Sunday with hours dedicated in this for community use and school hire.

“A win-win for everyone”
