Spotlight on Basildon Sporting Village

If you’re looking for a venue in Essex that can play host to well-organised events, practical meetings and conferences or even a filming location; you can do no better than choosing Basildon Sporting Village.

Although the £38million venue is synonymous with being the official training centre for London’s 2012 Olympics and of course, home to Olympic gold medallist Max Whitlock – there’s so much more than meets the eye to this state-of-the-art complex.

Highly in-demand for home-turf and international sporting events, the venue boasts an Olympic-sized swimming pool, climbing wall, a 750-seat athletics stadium, three outdoor pitches and of course, a monumental eight-sport court main hall ready to seat 900 people. The sports hall is a crowd favourite for events such as boxing, gymnastics and even fencing.

But, not limiting itself to just sport, Basildon Sporting Village also features facilities such as meeting rooms, catering services and a fully-equipped hall for everything from a craft fair to a comedy night. Those looking for meeting room and conference facilities need not search far, as Basildon has rooms available with AV and PA systems too. If team-building days are high on your priority list, the facility can host these too with a range of activities to do. And for those busy parents who need to balance work and family life, let the team at the creche help – with their friendly staff and safe play area.

All the options overwhelming you? Don’t worry, let the team at Everyone Events do the legwork by pulling together your event. With a fully licensed bar and catering service available on site, the team can accommodate buffets and refreshments. However, they also have a large network of tried and tested suppliers on their books including décor companies, balloon experts and skilled entertainers.

Getting to and from the Basildon Sporting Village is made easy thanks to its 400-bay free car park and close proximity to the A127, A13 and M25.The main train station is only a mile walk away through Basildon’s Gloucester Park.
