A BRAND new sports hall has been officially opened at Furness College by former England cricket captain Mike Gatting.
The facility, which has been part-funded by the England Cricket Board (ECB) and Cumbria Cricket Ltd, has a number of features including specialist cameras for video analysis, nets, cushioned flooring, a spectator viewing gallery, scoreboard and hi-tech bowling machine.
Mr Gatting said: “It really is so important and to have a facility like this. It is going to be so good for the area. It makes people rounded individuals. It helps them when they play in teams and helps them learn to work with other people.”
Mr Gatting opened the facility after bowling to first year BTEC student, Georgie Holmes.
