James Seely Park off Main Street is an open park with a play area for smaller children and a youth shelter.
Calverton Cricket Club’s ground is alongside the park’s south-eastern boundary…“From April through to September you can be sure of a warm welcome at the ground regardless of age, sex and playing ability. We have a licensed bar for those who wish to visit purely on a social level. Playing wise we cater for children from 4 years upwards and have various teams at all age groups. Over recent years we have improved the facilities beyond recognition, pop up to the ground and enjoy the summer!”
William Lee Memorial Park off Park Road has a skate park, two full size football pitches, two tennis courts, a multi-use sports area, a bowls green, an outdoor gym & fitness course and a range of play equipment catering for children from toddlers to mid-teens.
The New Calverton Village Hall
The Council has now completed the new Village Hall and Sports Pavilion on the park. The hall will accommodate functions of up to 250 people. The pavilion has two sets of home, away and referee changing rooms that are up to FA standards.
The New Building is now available for bookings.
The Council have recently organised two tree planting schemes on William Lee Memorial Park to restore hedges on the park’s northern boundary and on the new Pitch & Putt Wildlife Area. The schemes were supported by funding from Greenwood Partnership and local volunteers – mainly from local schools.
