Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA)
If you're looking for a versatile court that allows you to play a wide range of sports, our MUGA is the ideal choice. Located between the community centre and primary school it is currently used by WVPS, the GP Youth Club and local football clubs, by adults, children and teen age groups.
It has a flexible surface and is a full court size enclosed by a fenced area with built in goal posts and nets making it easier to keep the ball in play for various types of sports, such as football, basketball or tennis. There is evidence that Multi-Use Games Areas reduce anti social behaviour and increase fitness.
Bowling Green at the Community Centre
The Wootton Grange Bowling Club during the bowling season regularly holds friendly meets and competition events on the bowling green adjacent to the Community Centre, it has changing facilities and disabled access. With the bowling green having direct access to the Café Bar it is a great attraction for visitors and a proud centre piece to Grange Park.
The Green is managed by the Bowling Club if you would like to join in please contact the organisers.
The Foxfield Pavilion opened in 2010 after 4 years in planning and construction, made possible thanks to South Northamptonshire Council obtaining a £400,000 grant from Prologis and the Parish Council securing match funding from the Football Foundation.
Demand for the boardroom, hall and playing fields is high due to being home for Grange Park Rangers FC and Grange Park Cricket Club. With regular groups including 'Tony Walkers Own' Scouts, Cubs and Beavers with Dance and Zumba classes too.
