Active Melton take StreetStadia around Leicestershire

With the support of Melton Police and the School Sports Partnership, Active Melton has found itself in the enviable position of owning a StreetStadia portable football pitch.

Active Melton is a non for profit Social Enterprise established in March 2011. Its aim is to bring together all of those with an interest in using the power of sport and physical activity to improve people’s lives. By working in partnership, the staff of Active Melton believe they can add value and help make the Melton Borough the most active borough in Leicestershire.

Chaired by Alan Pearson – director of SAQ® International – Active Melton has a number of key partners including Melton Borough Council, VAL, School Games, Leicestershire County Council and Leicestershire and Rutland Sport, all helping to deliver sport in the community. Alan Pearson commented:-

The stadium is a fantastic piece of kit which will serve the entire borough. It will be provide for both youngsters and adults as well as for schools in the area which have limited sports and recreational resources.

This forward thinking Social Enterprise want to make Melton Borough an area that has a strong , sustainable culture of sport with an active recreational infra-structure.  The goal is to have as many people as possible taking part in sport and StreetStadia is a fantastic tool for helping to deliver these objectives.  Our portable soccer cage provides young people with fun and interesting ways to pass their time while helping to reduce anti social behaviour.

For those who don’t already know, StreetStadia is a unique system of panels that, when assembled, forms a very impressive sports arena.  A typical 15m x 10m system can be assembled or dismantled in as little as 30 minutes,  making it an ideal portable sports pitch for those organisations looking to take their project into the heart of a community.

We wish Alan Pearson and his team at Active Melton every success with their StreetStadia and if you would like to know more about how this enterprise then visit their website at .
