Southwark’s Colombo Centre is packed full of fantastic facilities, which includes a gym, exercise studios, badminton courts, hard court multi-use games area and 3G football pitches. Top quality showers have recently been installed to put the finishing touches on one of London’s finest grassroots venues.
The Jubilee Hall Trust help run the ideally located venue with a mission of making a measurable difference to the health and well-being of communities.
May’s grassroots award, which is determined by MyLocalPitch users, was based on pitch quality, venue amenities and customer experience.
MyLocalPitch is a platform for sports players who want to find and book sports venues in London. Users have the choice of over 1,000 venues for 16 featured sports.
Jamie Foale, Co-Founder of MyLocalPitch, commented: “Colombo Centre and Jubilee Hall Trust work tirelessly in getting Londoners active. May’s venue award is tribute to the hard graft that Lenny and the team continue to do and well done to all involved.”
Lenny Stephens, Club Manager at Colombo Centre said: “It’s an honour to receive the award and we would like to thank everyone that took the time to pass their positive feedback of the centre on to MyLocalPitch. We hope to encourage more people to partake in physical activity – especially those in the local community – in the form of football, netball, tennis, gym, or any of the many sports and activities we facilitate here. Finally, I would like to thank MyLocalPitch for making this more accessible to more people.”
