Leicester Community Sports Arena

Ball Hall is proud to have designed and project managed the Leicester Community Sports Arena from inception to completion.

Whilst Ball Hall has managed the construction of over 40 sports halls in the UK over the last 20 years including important venues for local basketball leagues, the ground-breaking 2,000+ seat arena for Leicester Riders is the first of its kind, responding to the All Party Parliamentary Committee’s recent recommendation for great basketball facilities to be provided in the UK.

The project was made a success through a special partnership between the Riders, Leicester College, Leicester City Council and Sport England. Ball Hall is proud to have worked alongside these partners to help deliver this Arena for Leicester.
