Powerleague Nine Elms is on cloud nine after picking up Playfinder’s Outstanding Venue Award for the month of October.

The state-of-the-art sports facility opened its doors in September and is already making headlines thanks to its innovative 5-a-side and 7-a-side football pitches by New Covent Garden market.

Some of the standout features are the rooftop location and the first  ESA high-tech skills zone of its kind in the UK which is due open to the public at the end of this month  – usually reserved for professional football clubs.

Also all pitches are installed with pitch camera to record your goals & Wearable technology that calculates your statistics including , passing accuracy , shot speed , distance run and compares you to a professional football player.

Powerleague Nine Elms plays an integral role in granting the local community direct access to sports pitches that were lacking before now. Nine Elms pitches are bookable for leagues, social bookings, kids’ parties, coaching and corporate events. Next week a tournament is being held for Children in Need and not before London’s leading Embassies go head-to-head for a competition.

As a further extension of its commitment to the community there is free pitch bookings for local schools and community groups.

October’s grassroots venue award, which is determined by Playfinder users, was based on pitch quality, venue amenities and customer experience.

Playfinder is a platform for sports players who want to find and book sports venues in London. Users have the choice of over 9,000 of the best venues around the UK for 17 featured sports. The service has most recently launched in Brighton.

The commitment to the local community and delivering an unrivalled experience is clear and helps play a vital role in getting people out enjoying themselves through sports.”
