After many years, our Sports Dome is closing in preparations for the new centre.

February 27 2017

Our Sports Dome will be closing but many of our activities that we run will be in operation elsewhere!

Sports Dome Closure:

You may already be aware that the Sports Dome at Littlehampton Swimming & Sports Centre is due to close as of 1st April 2017.  The building is due for demolition to make way for the new centre, set to open in September 2019.

The process for relocating our existing activities began in January 2016.  It is only now that we have been able to confirm arrangements for the future.  More details specific to the various activities we run can be found below:

Junior Sports Club

Unfortunately, we have not been able to find a suitable location for the Junior Sports Club.  The main stumbling block was finding a venue that could store all of the equipment.  So as it stands the last session will take place on 25th March 2017.

Periodically in its place, we will be running Off-Road Biking sessions.  We will also be continuing our Football Skills, Badminton and Roller Skating at different venues.  It is our full intention to reinstate the Junior Sportsa Club once the new build is up and running. 

Roller Skating

Fortunately we have been able to find a venue suitable for this activity.  The new location will be at the Littlehampton Academy Sports Hall.  We hope that you will be able to still go to this new venue and we will reinstate this session back at Littlehampton Swimming & Sports Centre once the new build is up and running. 

The session at TLA will now run from 7.15pm - 9.00pm on Fridays listed below.  This is because we have to fit in around their exam periods.  Also, there will be no sessions on the Easter weekend, during the Summer and Christmas holidays. 

Dates: Friday 07/04/17 - 12/05/17 (excluding 15/04/17 Easter), Friday 07/07/17 - 28/07/17 & Friday 08/09/17 - 15/12/17 (excluding 2 weeks in December TBC)

You will be able to pay by cash, card or direct debit members can pay in advance from the Littlehampton Swimming & Sports Centre.  Alternatively, you could pay cash or by direct debit on the day.  You can also purchase a 12 for 10 card.

Whizz Kids

Unfortunately we have been unable to find a suitable location for Whizz Kids.  The biggest stumbling block was finding a venue that could store all of the equipment.  So as it stands the last session will take place on Thursday 30th March 2017.

It is our full intention to reinstate this session once the new build is up and running.

Football Skills

Our plan is to use our normal space on Mewsbrook Park during the spring and summer months and a floodlit venue in the winter.  The exact dates will be arranged nearer the time.

Wednesday & Friday No Strings Badminton

Unfortunately we have not been able to find a suitable location for Friday's No Strings session.  The biggest stumbling block was finding a venue big enough during the day.  So as it stands the last session will take place on Friday 31st March 2017. 

We have moved the Wednesday evening No Strings session to the Littlehampton Academy to Monday evenings 8.00pm - 9.30pm (dates to be confirmed as we need to work around their exam periods) and we encourage our Friday players to attend this one. 

The last Wednesday session in the Sports Dome will take place on Wednesday 29th March 2017.

Junior Badminton

Fortunately we have been able to find a suitable location for Junior Badminton.  This will now take place at The Littlehampton Academy Sports Hall.  As it stands the last session at the Sports Dome will take place on  Saturday 25th March 2017.

We hope that people will be able to make this new venue and we will reinstate the session once the new build is up and running.

The session at TLA will now run from 9.00am to 10.00am on the Saturdays listed below.  This is because we have to fit in around their exam periods.  Also we will now only stop the session on the Easter weekend, and during the Summer & Christmas holidays.

Dates: Saturday 08/04/17 - 13/05/17 (excluding 15/04/17 Easter), Saturday 01/07/17 - 23/07/17 & Saturday 09/09/17 - 16/12/17 (excluding 2 weeks in December to be confirmed).

Prime Time

Fortunately we have been able to find a location for Prime Time.  This will take place at Bersted Park Community Centre but on Wednesdays 2.00pm - 3.00pm.  So as it stands the last Tuesday session in the Sports Dome will take place on Tuesday 28th March 2017.  The first session at Bersted will take place on Wednesday 5th April 2017.

It will be held at the same time every Wednesday throughout the year, only stopping for the week between christmas and new year (we may also have to cancel the  Wednesday 26th April 2017 week due to an existing booking).

Existing 12 for 10 tickets will still be valid there but when they run out you'll need to purchase your next one from Bersted.

The layout at Bersted is 2 badminton courts so we would ask that if there are players waiting to play please play games up to 15 not 21.  At this stage we've been unable to staff the session so we would ask that you do as you normally do and arrange your own games.  Refreshments as per normal will be served towards the end of the session from either the servery in the main hall or one of the lounges. 

You will be able to pay by cash, card or direct debit members can pay in advance from the Littlehampton Swimming & Sports Centre.  Alternatively, you could pay cash or by direct debit on the day.  You can also purchase a 12 for 10 card.

We really appreciate your support over the years, in some cases through generations of families and understand there will be disappointment.  We would also like to say a big thank you to all our staff who have helped out over the years.

Please note that for all activities taking place at The Littlehampton Academy, class participants must enter through the Hill Road entrance.  All other entrances will be locked.
