Denbigh High School became a Specialist Sports College in April 2005, and since then has significantly upgraded the sports facilities.
The sports hall was completed in 2005, whilst a new tennis centre and floodlit artificial turf football pitch (ATP) were completed in March 2007 and invite community groups and sports clubs to have the opportunity to access all of these facilities.
All facilities are fully accessible for people with disabilities.
We currently attract many local clubs to our facilities.
All hirers are required to have public liability insurance in place.
All groups should also have a qualified first aider who attends all sessions.
Other documents are required – please contact us as detailed below if you require more information on this.
Included in the new sports hall building is a coach education room. This is now fitted out with state of the art ICT equipment to assist with coach development, workshops, seminars, meetings and other related training courses.
The sports hall itself has 4 badminton courts, 4 cricket nets, 1 netball court and 1 basketball court with 6 additional training hoops (two of which are height adjustable and suitable for mini basketball). The lighting system is excellent and the hall’s generous height (12.5 metres) makes it ideal for all of these activities.
A viewing balcony offers a perfect position to spectate activities and should help create an exciting atmosphere for competitions.
Located just off the hall’s viewing gallery is a dance studio with 2 mirrored walls, matted flooring, dance barres and a music system. This space can be screened off for privacy and will be perfect for activities such as aerobics, martial arts, fitness and dance classes.
Outside, the tennis centre comprise of two areas. The first is floodlit, including 2 full-size tennis courts, 2 mini tennis courts, and markings for 1 netball court.
The second area houses a further 2 tennis courts (with no flood lighting).
Next to the tennis courts is sited the new 52m x 33.5m floodlit (“third generation”) artificial turf football pitch (ATP).
