Sports Centre



Lytchett Manor Sports Centre is a small dual use sports facility situated at Lytchett Minster School. The Centre was first established in 1988 and a gymnasium extension was added in 1998. More recently a multi use games area and cricket nets have been completed to provide a comprehensive range of facilities.

The Sports Centre provides the focus for many different sporting activities, serving in particular the villages of Upton, Lytchett Matravers and Sandford. There are many clubs that use the Sports Centres facilities; these include The Bowmen of Lytchett, Doodlebugs Netball Club, Lytchett Red Triangle Football Club, Lytchett Manor Striders Running Club and Lytchett Manor Short Mat Bowls Club. In recent years The Dorset Cricket Board have established their Academy at Lytchett, Dorset Football Association carry out much of its coach education programme and Dorset Short Mat Bowl Association engage in county competitions and matches on a regular basis.

The Sports Centre does not receive any financial support from the Local Authority to provide sports and leisure opportunities for the local community and is therefore self funding. Accordingly, any surplus income at the end of each financial year can be used by the Centre Management Committee to improve the facilities for both school and community use.
