Cheltenham YMCA Choose StreetStadia for Outreach Project

The Cheltenham branch of the YMCA has chosen to invest in a state of the art StreetStadia mobile football pitch as part of its ongoing social inclusion and outreach work in the Cheltenham and Gloucester community.

The Cheltenham Y.M.C.A. was founded in 1855 and is committed to developing every young person, encouraging and empowering them to:-

•             Be healthy.

•             Stay safe.

•             Enjoy & achieve.

•             Make a positive contribution.

•             Achieve economic wellbeing.

Steven Lane, managing director of StreetStadia commented “A lot may have changed over the last 156 years but sport will always be seen as a means of communicating with and developing young people.  StreetStadia creates an exiting sporting arena that appeals to people of all ages by providing a safe playing environment.”

Following discussions and research led by branch CEO David Wallace and his team Cheltenham YMCA were delighted to secure backing from the Gloucester Safer & Stronger Communities Partnership who decided that the StreetStadia portable multi use games area was the ideal package to ensure that they could achieve their objectives.

StreetStadia is ideal for both indoor and outdoor activities and its flexibility, ease of use and mobility ensure that they can take sport direct to the communities and help to build and improve on the quality of life via physical exercise and encourage a positive healthy attitude on people’s doorstep.

David Wallace added “After its launch the StreetStadia has been used successfully during School holidays where it has received very positive feedback.  We are currently putting our core team together and the objective is that it will be used frequently, especially in those areas where it is most required.”

The StreetStadia multi sports pack enables allows the YMCA to use it to its full potential and not just for streetsoccer.  Other sporting activities include basketball, netball, tennis, badminton, volleyball, hockey, cricket and much more……….

StreetStadia is the first product of its kind to be manufactured here in the UK and is already providing communities with their own mobile sports and activities venue, where people can play, learn, coach, educate and build relations. It is especially successful at safely challenging inappropriate and anti-social behaviour.
