Improving Quality of life through Sport, Health & Education, Skelmanthorpe based Sports Centre, Dearne Valley Sports Village plans to reclaim and re-profile 23 acres of contaminated former colliery workings to provide an exciting and sustainable mix of sports, leisure, welfare and health promoting activities in order to meet the needs and aspirations of the local community.

The project has identified a need within the area to address the key issues of:

  • The lack of sporting & leisure activities for young people
  • The lack of facilities for established clubs, groups and forums
  • The promotion of health and well-being in all sections of the population
  • Accident rehabilitation facilities (sports & general injuries) Sports for the disabled (e.g., Wheel Chair Rugby & Basketball)
  • Access to Sporting & Community facilities for the under privileged
  • Access and involvement in environmental & nature based activities

Our key aims are to:

Develop and grow the community spirit, regardless of age, gender and ethnic background and to specifically achieve a welcoming environment which is:

  • Family friendly
  • Accessible and affordable to disadvantaged groups
  • Encouraging and supportive and a safe environment for all
  • Effectively managed and prepared for the future need of the community we serve
