The Undercover Skatepark Project continues to work hard behind the scenes to secure a location to build Portsmouth’s first sheltered wheeled sports facility.
As we know the skateboarding community of Portsmouth, Southsea & surrounding areas, have no undercover facility to go to. We live somewhere it rains very often and while there are a handful of small skateparks around, none of them can be used when the weather is wet.
Skateboarding has been announced to be an Olympic sport. We aim to build a suitable purpose-built facility for day to day use as well as competitions. A great space for all from grass roots learning through to future Olympian training.
While we continue with talks, a committee is being formed to work through designs and procedures for the skatepark. A design team have been appointed and regular meetings are being held with the council to make sure we are continuing to push forward.
Fundraising is high on the agenda for the team. A video is being created to use for promotion of the project as well as the Crowdfunder that will be launched in parts later this year. Events will be rescheduled once COVID-19 is over.
Grants and funding bids are being written and applied for.
USP Skate Academy has launched! You can now book lessons with our team of skateboarding coaches. It doesn’t matter your age or ability the coaches will work with you to improve your confidence and skills. You can buy the vouchers from Bored of Southsea.
