Elmbridge Borough Council is extending an invitation for all residents of the Borough, and indeed beyond, to visit and enjoy the community’s new sports hub. Called the Xcel Sports Hub and situated on Waterside Drive, Walton-on-Thames beside the Xcel Leisure complex, this state-of-the art sports facility is the new home of local clubs Walton & Hersham FC, Walton Casuals, Walton Casuals Juniors and Walton Athletics Club.
To celebrate the Xcel Sports Hub, Elmbridge Borough Council and Places for People (PfP), the Hub’s operator, are hosting the ‘Xcel Active Everyday Event’ on Sunday 17 September between 10am and 4pm. Visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy a range of free activities in the Xcel Leisure Centre, everything from free pool inflatable sessions to sports taster sessions and they will also be able to visit the new Xcel Sports Hub where Walton Casuals Juniors will be playing, Walton Athletics Club will be showing off their new 8-lane running track, and the football clubs Walton & Hersham FC and Walton Casuals will be proudly displaying their 3G pitches as they ready themselves for their league games ahead.
