Having been a member of Castle Sports Centre for the last 10 years (I play 50-plus badminton), I have noticed that the centre is used more and more frequently for social events, resulting in the sports hall being unavailable.
As an example, from mid-December to mid-January, we will be unable to use the sports hall due to the fact that it is being taken over for a string of social events.
After an event, it is not uncommon to find the floor in a terrible state, rendering it dangerous, especially given the age group of our players (50 to 85).
Of course, this does not only effect us, but all the other indoor sporting groups that use the hall.
Surely the use of the Springfields Events Centre is better suited to social functions, rather than a sports hall.
I would be interested in your readers’ views.
