Leisure Facilities Strategy

Rushcliffe is proud to be at the heart of Nottinghamshire sport, playing host to iconic facilities such as Trent Bridge Cricket Ground, Nottingham Forest’s City Ground, Holme Pierrepont National Water-sports Centre and Nottingham Rugby’s ‘Lady Bay’ sports ground.

The Council recognises the role such facilities can play to inspire residents to take part in sport. Equally importantly we are committed to provide (directly and in partnership with others) leisure facilities to enable all of our community to lead healthy lives, by participating in a wide range of activities.

The opening of Rushcliffe Arena in January 2017 represented a significant step forward in the quality of our indoor leisure provision and was a major achievement resulting from our first leisure strategy.

This document sets out the Council’s vision and key strategic objectives for the next 10 years. It supports the suite of local plan documents to guide future leisure requirements arising from housing growth across the Borough. The strategy has been written as a concise summary to aid usability and will be underpinned by more detailed delivery plans such as for outdoor sports
