The new Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) at Avisford Recreation Ground is now officially open which includes two football goal ends with basketball hoops and backboards on new tarmac surfacing.
It also has ground markings for basketball and five-a-side football.
Joint funding for the improvements came from Arun District Council and Aldwick Parish Council – who were keen to contribute after local school pupil, Benedict Wilson, wrote to them to ask for it to be repaired.
The new MUGA, which has 2m high side panels and 1.2m perimeter fencing, was supplied and installed by Caloo Ltd for a total cost of £40K, £8k of which was supplied by the parish council.
Councillor David Edwards, Chairman of the Environment Committee at Arun District Council, said: “The council is committed to making improvements to play facilities across the district and the renovation of the court at Avisford Recreation Ground is the latest project to be unveiled.
“I think the transformation is fantastic and will really encourage local people to try something new and get active. Come along and give it a try!”
