Sports courts and activities

Derby Arena infield activities 

Currently there are no infield activities taking place at Derby Arena, as we have utilised the closure and part opening due to Covid 19 pandemic to re-prioritise plans to upgrade the infield floor. Works are well under way and we anticipated for the upgrade to be completed end of October.

The venue will continue to be guided by the government and national governing bodies for sport in its decision making process for activities and sport to return to the venue. 

Indoor sports courts for badminton are available at Springwood Leisure Centre.
