SiD’s aim is to provide reasonably priced sporting and recreational facilities for the people of Desford and surrounding areas.
SiD is a Registered Charity (No. 1100319) and is run by an Executive Management Committee, which consists of a management team and representatives from all the affiliated sports sections – Bowls, Football, Fitness Gym, Squash, Striders Running, Scouting and Tennis. The Committee members are volunteers. This Committee is answerable to a Board of 6 Trustees, all of whom also work on a voluntary basis.

Roadworks on Peckleton Lane
The roadworks on Peckleton Lane will take a break for the whole of December as a concession promoted by Leicestershire Highways. They will resume in January just to tidy up the road edge and footpath on the Griffen Park side of Peckleton Lane and should be complete by the end of January. Then the work outside Owl homes is likely to recommence in February!
You can now play Pickleball on the Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) at the front of the SiD site,
But what is Pickleball? It is a reduced form of tennis played within the red lines on the courts and you use bats and an areo ball, all supplied in the toolbox on the court.
How do I book to give Pickleball a try? Just google “Desford Tennis” and book a timed court session on the website for an online payment of £5. You will be given a code for the court gate which will be live for the hour of your booking.
Come and give it a try!
