Build an outdoor Parkour, Calisthenics, and Fitness facility in Derby city

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

There are vast numbers of young people and adults who need to channel their energy in a positive way throughout Derbyshire, yet have very little facilities relevant to their needs in Derby. Derby city Council have been asked numerous times by different groups to begin the process of construction of an outdoor training facility that is used for Parkour/Freerunning, Calisthenics workouts, and general fitness, and every time these requests have been ignored or refused. Derby city has a great history of Parkour, being the home to former world champion freerunner, Tim Shieff. Derby also is home to the professional Parkour team Street Media, who also run Parkour coaching sessions twice weekly, but have to travel outside of Derby for both of these sessions as the closest facilities are located in Burton on Trent or Nottingham. Children, Parents and Athletes alike are in great need of a Derby city based outdoor facility, as this would allow everyone involved to flourish and grow within Parkour and related sports, leading to a healthy body and mind, positive attitudes, and all while giving Derby its rightful name as leading developers in the world of Parkour. Please help get this facility created, for the athletes, coaches, young people, parents and new learners in Derbyshire!
