Please note Benham will be closed from Monday 31st Aug and reopens on Tuesday 15th September due to having a new floor put down in the arena. Our phone lines will be open from 9am-5pm during this period.

Based in Northampton, Benham Sports Arena is one of the East Midlands largest and most exciting sports centres. The arena floor area measures 45 x 42 metres on which a whole host of exciting sporting activities can take place simultaneously. The arena’s flexibility means that it not only hosts social

sporting events but exhibitions, university exams, regional sports competitions and national tournaments as well. Retractable seating for 300 enables provision to be made for spectators when required.

In addition to an impressive array of sporting activities, the arena offers playschemes and summer camps, as well as children’s birthday parties and corporate days. Benham Sports Arena prides itself on not only offering superb facilities and value for money for the local community, but for regional and national organisations too. All of the centres' facilities are on one level, making it fully accessible to wheelchair users and special needs groups.

The adjacent King’s Park Conference Centre can accommodate athletes and coaches during competitions. The arena in turn, offers both instructed and non-instructed activities for many of our residential guests, subject to availability.
