The Nailsworth Recreation Centre is run by Nailsworth Primary School for the benefit of the Nailsworth community.
Outside school hours, the school becomes The Nailsworth Recreation Centre: the only purpose-built, public recreation facility in town. The centre is available for clubs, businesses and organisations to provide a wide range of sport, leisure and dance activities and events, using our fantastic facilities.
Members of the public can benefit through attending classes, being a member of a club or organisation, or through attending an event.
The Centre boasts a full-size gym that can be used for badminton, basketball, table tennis and many other sport and leisure activities.
The Gym has high level windows, high quality LED lighting and is accessed directly though the male and female changing rooms.
The floor is marked for basketball, badminton and football. There are two fixed basketball hoops.
This is the largest capacity hall in The Centre with a recently refurbished stage area. The hall has glass doors along its length which open onto the outside areas and also feature heavy red curtains.
There is disabled access directly from the car park, and lift access via the main door.
The Main Hall is suitable for films, exhibitions, performances, functions and various sports activities. The floor is marked for badminton. Inflatables are permitted provided the Hirer arranges adequate liability insurance. Additional charges may apply.
MUGA (Multi-Use Games Area)
A fantastic MUGA provides a fenced and floodlit AstroTurf area ideal for football, hockey, netball, rugby and many other sports.
The large field is well maintained, fenced and used as a training pitch for Forest Green Rovers FC!
Adjoining the Main Hall is well-equipped, large, up-to-date commercial kitchen.
The Kitchen contains all the equipment you would expect from a functioning school kitchen – ovens, hobs, water boiler and fridge freezers.
The Kitchen has a servery/bar that opens onto the back of the Main Hall.
