Could community sport and physical activity be involved in developing new initiatives and facilities for our high streets and city centres?

There is considerable debate as to how to revitalise our high streets and city centres as an increasing number of shops are standing empty. We are seeing gyms opening in London near Tube stations; what about boxing clubs in former banks or table tennis centres in former fashion stores? Could community sport and physical activity be involved in developing new initiatives and facilities for our high streets and city centres?

    Hi Folks,
    Found this article through LinkedIn. I believe that their is major potential for towns to benefit from increased footfall due to strategically located leisure services and sports clubs. I think infrastructure has a major part to add to this. We need our towns to cater to cyclists, walkers and public transport first, cars second.
