Another exciting image gives a first look at the bespoke Esports gaming suite. Esports has seen a meteoric rise in popularity and local interest is rapidly increasing.

The new suite will facilitate this growing trend and ensure there is access to allow local people to either try Esports for the first time, learn more through our education programmes, or event compete in organised competitive video gaming event.


Designs have been tailored to ensure they meet the requirements of the community through public feedback and consultation. Working groups have been established which include key stakeholders, health groups, young people, and existing users of the site to deliver a hub the community needs and deserves.
