Wigan arena could become ‘world class’ under Warriors

folder_openCivic & Public Sector, Sports & Leisure

A state-of-the-art multi-sports pitch in Wigan installed only three years ago could receive further investment. Zaun upgraded it under plans proposed by its legendary rugby league side.

Wigan Warriors have entered negotiations with Wigan Council to look at the feasibility of moving the club’s Central Park operations to Robin Park Arena, in the shadow of Wigan Athletic FC’s DW Stadium.

It inspires Healthy Lifestyles, which currently runs Robin Park Arena and its associated leisure centre. Therefore, part of the discussions with community groups to improve the health and wellbeing of the borough’s residents.

The plans would see the Warriors turn the arena into a world-class sports and community leisure facility. Take on its lease, saving the council £241,000 a year in subsidy and maintenance costs.

The council invested £318,000 in a state-of-the-art pitch at the arena only three years ago.

The all-weather 3G FIFA 2-star pitch, which also meets the International Rugby Board’s standard, is surrounded by 5m high Zaun Limited Duo8 Super Rebound to aid ball retention.

The twin horizontal wire panels are highly durable, low maintenance, ‘graffiti proof, and offer excellent rebound properties similar to a wall. Ten gates, therefore, provide access at all points of the pitch.

Dawn Fencing of Leigh installed the fencing.

At the time, Wigan Councillor Paul Kenny, cabinet member for resources, said: “I am pleased that we have been able to invest in this valuable resource for the benefit of the community. We are asking people to be more active and healthy. We must provide quality facilities to encourage them to do so.”
