Welcome to Jubilee Sports Bank
A Sports Centre for Everyone
Welcome & Introduction
Jubilee Sports Bank, formally known as Kensington Community Sports Centre was acquired by Sure Options in 2010; the sports centre and staff are committed to setting high standards for the future for both the sports centre and surrounding area in and around Kensington. The sports centre has embraced the linkage of Jubilee Park which has seen a great deal of investment. The park and sports centre are to be seen as one, providing the surrounding community with the facilities and opportunities to increase health and wellbeing across the Kensington and Fairfield areas via cycling, walking, football, health projects, training areas and much more.
Sure Options believe through using the sports centre as a community hub linking Jubilee Park with the community at its heart, we can develop an enjoyable and safe space that we hope will support the community needs for years to come. Sure Options are looking to develop further in the future and it is an exciting time, so we urge you to come and see for yourselves the development and changes that have taken place and continue to be made.
Jubilee Park is the first urban park to be socially owned in Liverpool, the naming came via a competition held with local schools, with the winning name ‘Jubilee Park’ of which the Sports Centre has now been rebranded linking both the park and the sports centre under ‘Jubilee Sports Bank’.
Jubilee Park offers the community free open space to enjoy and relax, a raised bed sensory garden provides different smells – touch and texture, trim trail which is a small activity outdoor area , a children’s playground, cycle/walking track provides space to learn to ride or speed walking before using the fitness suite. There is also a under 16s football pitch and a mini soccer pitch to use and hire for games, event or sports days – to assist in this we have secure outdoor changing facilities.
In addition a new entrance has been created from Brae Street. and the Jubilee Drive entrance has been improved. Lighting has been installed, pathways improved and benches have been sited with a more updated CCTV system which supports the park.
