The surface of the Multi-Use Games Area needs to be replaced, with a 3G artificial carpet.
A volunteer group consisting of members from the Ingleton Rural Community Association, Ingleton Sports Management Committee, and local sport clubs have taken action to upgrade the Multi-Use Games Area. Plans involve resurfacing the playing area (to 3G) and constructing a small maintenance storage unit near the site entrance. We are in talks with three FA approved suppliers, with our preferred supplier to be selected by May 2019 and installation forecast to begin September 2019.
The Ingleton community boasts comparatively high participation rates in exercise and physical activity, much of which can be accredited to the ongoing work of dedicated local volunteers who run outdoor events and sports clubs. To continue meeting these increasing demands, opportunities to maintain active lifestyles across all age groups need to be secured within the local area.
The Ingleton Community Centre has served as the central hub for physical exercise and social activity, with the multi-use games area designed to allow year-round access to a range of activities. However, nearly fifteen years of general wear and prolonged inclement weather has damaged parts of the facility and proven the current shallow artificial turf to be outdated and inadequate for regular use.
The existing MUGA area is used by several local football clubs, with membership of over 150 players. It will also be used by several local sports clubs, schools, businesses and individuals. These include ladies football, walking football, and senior and junior football clubs.
