History of Southampton’s Outdoor Sports Centre #NSHD2021

Today (30 September 2021) marks National Sporting Heritage Day, an annual event aimed at raising awareness of sporting heritage in the UK.

To celebrate, we have created this video with a brief history of Southampton’s Outdoor Sports Centre and the role this key site played during World War II.

Over recent years, Southampton City Council has been working on an improvement plan for the Outdoor Sports Centre and are now consulting on the £16.85 million Draft Masterplan of Improvements.
