We bring mobile football arenas to areas where young people tend to gather. This is to help with tackling youth disorder in crime hotspots. These street sports units can also be used for other sports and games.
How it works
The Community Safety Partnership sub group decides where to place the street sports arena. Sessions are often run by community policemen, youth workers and sports coaches.
Street sport units
These mobile arenas can be erected on flat areas wherever the need to provide the activity arises. Each measures 10m by 15m and has solid kick board sidings with a high netting surround. There is no floor to the unit. Each is easily erected in about half an hour with four strong adults.
Each unit is contained in a box trailer. It requires a vehicle capable of towing two and a half tonnes and a driver with a towing licence.
