Salford Sports Centre

Salford warehouse to become indoor sports centre

Graystone Action Sports Academy has submitted a planning application to Salford City Council to develop the 35,000 sq ft site into a sports centre, which will include trampolines, foam pits and a half pipe.

The academy hopes the facility will cater for various sports including skateboarding, snowboarding, parkour, climbing, dance and cheer.

The centre will be open to the public, schools and companies, and will be a training academy for elite and pathway athletes from the GB Olympic Park & Pipe Ski and Snowboard team.

Ben Livingstone, director, Graystone Action Sports Academy, said: “We are very excited to submit the planning application as the facility will be the first and only progression-based action sports facility of its kind in the UK. It will enable action sports from beginner to pro to achieve their freestyle dreams in a range of sports by combining world-class facilities and the latest training techniques within a reduced-risk environment.”

Euan Kellie Property Solutions is the planning consultant. Euan Kellie, director, added: “The proposals are very exciting and will make a fantastic contribution to the sport and leisure sector in the north west.”
