Centre AT7 is a community sports facility located in the North East of Coventry. The centre was built in 1987 to encourage participation from the surrounding communities which have been recognised as experiencing under representation and deprivation.


In addition to an extensive range of facilities for sport, exercise and recreational participation, Centre AT7 also incorporates a specialist provision of Outdoor Activities through its outdoor adventure area, which includes a 35ft climbing / abseiling tower and high and low level ropes courses.


A partnership with Goals Soccer Centres Ltd in 2009 has resulted in the construction of ten new 5 aside pitches along with the complete refurbishment and modernisation of the sports hall, indoor children's play area, reception, bar and changing areas.
