This week we had the pleasure of attending the opening of new and completely modernised sports facilities at Avenue Park in Hounslow, officially opened by the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Myra Swain. The new sports facility included:
- A 10 station hydraulic outdoor gym
- Multi Use Games Area (MUGA)
- 2 revamped tennis courts
- West Londons only purpose built parkour circuit designed by leading parkour expert Sebastien Foucan
- Rugby try outs and activity
- A full size football pitch
Proludic provided the outdoor gym equipment at the site through their popular Urbanix range, which is the first in the UK to use a hydraulic piston so users can adjust resistance to suit a progressive work out. It has also recently been featured in a joint video with the national ‘ThisGirlCan’ campaign advocating how great these facilities are at involving women in sport and activity.
On the day we helped demonstrate with local residents how the Urbanix equipment can be used and are pleased that these activity sessions will be taken forward to ensure the whole community benefits from these great free and accessible facilities.
Throughout August the council in association with Brentford Football Club Community Sports Trust will be running free activity sessions every Tuesday and Thursday on both the Proludic Urbanix equipment and the parkour facilities showcasing how to get the best from this type of equipment.
Get active and get yourself down to this great site!
