Local venue named best in London for February by app users

The John Orwell Sports Centre in Wapping has been awarded the MyLocalPitch Outstanding London Sports Venue Award for February.

The 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, with a choice of over 1,000 venues for 16 featured sports.

The John Orwell Sports Centre has a four-court sports hall with markings for badminton, basketball and volleyball.

It also has an outdoor astroturf pitch set against a stunning city skyline which caters for football and hockey.

Youngsters are able to get involved in tennis, football and trampoline courses laid on by dedicated coaches at the facility.

Basketball and gymnastics courses are also available, while yoga, aerobics and other classes for adults can be booked online.

In 2016, the site installed a new astroturf pitch with funding from Sport England and Tower Hamlets Council.

Floodlights were part of the upgrade package, as well as better services for disabled sports players.

“The team appreciate this award, which is a testament to the significant investment made over the last 12 months,” said Sean Robinson, operations manager at John Orwell Sports Centre.

“These include refurbished outdoor changing rooms, brand new indoor changing facilities, an updated front entrance, foyer and reception area as well as resurfaced hard court tennis and multi-use spaces.

“Thank you to MyLocalPitch and its users.”
