Hilary Palmer from Nottinghamshire Orienteering club said ‘Linking up and working with Rushcliffe Arena was fantastic, our club members thought it was a superb venue to be able to use as our start/finish point, especially the ones from other areas of the city/county!’

 

Robert Linthwaite, Centre Manager at Rushcliffe Arena said ‘Helping Communities to be happier and healthier is our purpose and working with local sports club provides Lex Leisure the opportunity to achieve this and invite new people to come and experience what we can offer at our centre in the heart of the local community.’
