Why Elmbridge needs a Sports Hub

Sporting grounds and clubs in Elmbridge face a number of issues:

  • the sports ground at Stompond Lane is in bad need of repair and upgrade to modern standards.

  • Walton Athletics Club requires improvement to its facilities.

  • the contaminated land which houses Walton Casuals needs to be remediated.

The Sports Hub will provide a solution to these issues.  It will also create a beacon of sport in Elmbridge which hundreds of young people will benefit from.

  • hundreds of children will have the chance to play football on a national level sports pitch

  • more children will be able to get involved with clubs

  • the former landfill site can be dealt with so that the land is brought back into use

Funding of the scheme

The entire scheme will be paid for by the redevelopment of the Stompond Lane Sports Ground.
