A sports facility has been crowned the best in a nationwide competition.

Waltham Forest's Match Day Centres in Walthamstow has won MyLocalPitch's March Outstanding Sports Facility Award.

The sports facility located on Kitchener Road works in partnership with Wadham Lodge Sports Ground Trust to provide recreational facilities for residents within a 20 mile radius of Waltham Forest Town Hall.

The company’s philosophy is to deliver group sport for everyone, whatever age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or ability.

Match Day Centres general manager Mark Everid said: "A big thanks to MyLocalPitch and all those who voted for us. We work hard as a team to ensure our sports players get the best experience possible and it’s awesome to be recognised with this award."

It is the third award of its type this year and is determined by MyLocalPitch users based on pitch quality, venue amenities and customer experience.

MyLocalPitch is a platform for sports players who want to find and book sports venues in the country and users have the choice of more than 9,000 facilities around the UK for 17 featured sports.

MyLocalPitch co-founder Jamie Foale said: "Match Day Centres excels in providing fantastic facilities for everyone to enjoy recreational group sports. They go the extra mile to lay on development and educational programs to help the local community. Congratulations to Mark and Joanna."
