Further to 3d leisure’s announcement of our partnership with South Devon College, great progress is being made in the development of the state-of-the-art College Sports Centre, with the new 3G sports pitch nearing completion. Designed with a strong emphasis on the local community, the Centre will act as a central sports hub for future College students as well as residents across South Devon, who will be able to use the facilities for a wide range of sports and activities including football and netball. In addition to the 3G pitch the Centre will boast a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) pitch, further inspiring individuals to participate in and enjoy, spectator sports.

The purpose-built facility will ensure the delivery of education and training across the College’s wide range of pathways, the further education and higher education curriculum and a range of apprenticeships. Head of Sport, Leisure and Hospitality Industries at South Devon College, Lynn Squire said, “I join many others in excited anticipation for the project’s completion. The new pitch and Sport Centre will act as the official home to our resident Pro: Direct Devon Football Academy which currently involves 65 dedicated students training several times a week and playing matches all over the country. Once the Centre is complete, we’ll be able to host many more games and fixtures for teams all across the South West region, further showcasing the College’s outstanding facilities”.
