Overton Recreation Centre


This year the village charity Overton Recreation Centre is celebrating 50 years of looking after its’ own local sports and activities. “Helping our local community to thrive has always been our ambition. We have been managing our own facilities here since 1966. And what better way to improve your health than by using the 30 acres of green space that we manage directly ourselves.” said Chairman Steve Williams.

Local resident Andy Wake, who is the 3rd generation of a family that have grown up in the area, said “There is an incredible choice of sports and activities for everyone to enjoy all year round. There’s even a local lottery which helps fund everything!” Local residents are certainly committed to improving their well being as more than two thousand adults and children participate in the variety of sports and activities available to them consistently every month!

Overton Recreation Centre will be offering a feast of sport and entertainment on Sunday 8th May at its’ Bridge Street Sports Ground where families will be able to find Music, Dancing, Football for boys, girls and men, Walking Football, Cricket, Athletics, Tennis, Table Tennis Golf, Aerobics, Walking, Art, Photography, all supported by a BBQ with drinks.

“It will be a fantastic day – it’s free to attend – we want as much participation as we can muster as we know the long term benefits for family life of being involved,” said Graham Devereux, event organiser.

The 50th Anniversary Sports Event for Overton Recreation Centre will take place at Bridge Street Sports Ground, Overton RG25 3HD on Sunday 8th May between 12noon and 5pm
