CALNE TOWN COUNCIL/ F.I.S.A LAUNCH

4 July, 2013

Bobby White, Team GB’s handball captain, officially opened a new family inclusive sports area (F.I.S.A) at Hillcroft, Anchor Road, Calne, on Tuesday June 28th 2013.

The sports area has been extremely well received by local residents and according to Mayor Mercy Baggs the area has already seen a reduction in anti-social behaviour.

The ‘Family Inclusive Sports Area’ incorporates Playinnovation’s innovative patented games walls ‘Street Snooker’ and ‘Street Pool’ and is designed to be used by people of all ages and abilities as an informal ball sports area to encourage a wide range of developmental benefits.

The scheme cost £79,000 to build and was funded by a section 106 agreement from the Hills development at Sandpit Road.

Despite the wet and windy weather several children turned up to meet Bobby White, who played at the London Olympics last summer, and to try out the new equipment. They took part in competitions and tried games including Street Snooker, Street Pool, cricket and basketball.

Town clerk Linda Roberts said: “They did quite a lot with Bobby – he was great. He was soaking wet, but he taught them some hand ball techniques. He thinks it’s a brilliant facility for informal play and also for people to train for handball.

“When I started researching what we could put in Anchor Road I didn’t realise what support I would have from young people in the community. If it’s a nice day the facility is packed and we have nothing but positive feedback from the community.”
