A new performance centre for fans of extreme sports opens in Corby at the weekend.
Adrenaline Alley will be launching its new performance centre and unique event course on Saturday and Sunday (June 15 and 16).
The facility is already being hailed as the best in Europe with new resi ramps and a large foam pit that will excite both beginners and advanced riders and help them improve their skills.
The founder of the charity that runs the indoor urban sports centre, Mandy Young, said: “We are so excited about what this facility will provide for riders and what an incredible achievement for everyone associated with the organisation, and for Corby. Unique to the UK and the largest park in Europe we have no doubt participation will continue to increase. What a legacy my son has left, I am so proud I have been able to develop the charity to where it is today, and there is much more to come.”
Recently, Adrenaline Alley launched a professional photography studio and learning club, and is currently developing a new dedicated scooter park and building aa new reception building, tripling its size. It is hoped this will open in September.
The Mayor of Corby, Cllr Judy Caine, and top professional rider, Alex Coleborn, will be opening the new centre at 11am on Saturday. The weekend will include amateur and professional competitions in BMX, scooter, dirt jumping and skate with some of the biggest names riding over the weekend.
The new facility was built with help from the county council and Wren, as well as land and buildings gifted to it by Alfred Buller of Stanwell Properties Ltd.
