New Build

We are excited to be planning an extension to the existing structure, due to come online towards the end of Q3 2018.

The new building will:

Add a new hall to the existing badminton court, extending out into the existing sports field
Add a new gym and mezzanine floor/viewing gallery, enabling a second squash court
Provide additional space for other sections, notably cricket, fitness classes, and table tennis
Add new functionality and activities to the busy sporting roster at DASC, with an emphasis on broadening community participation and encouraging new members

We have shortlisted three local architects to manage the build programme and hope to appoint by Q4 2017 with a view to commencing a 10-week build programme early Q2 2018. We will need to raise a sum in the region of £250,000 and are working with a local firm who specialise in the dark arts of grant applications to that end; if you have ideas for fundraising, sources of donations, local trades who may offer preferential rates or any money trees that haven’t already been shaken dry please let a member of the Committee know, or email jsdp01@gmail.com.

More news will be posted on this page as it develops.
