Guildford Heat are to quit their Spectrum home – and move to a new arena in nearby Parkway.
The BBL outfit will switch to the £36 million facility, which is based at the University of Surrey’s Manor Park campus, in time for this season’s play-offs in April.
It ends a five-year stint at the Spectrum with Heat managing director Alan McClafferty citing the opportunity to train and play at a single venue as the primary reason for the change.
“Until now the Heat’s various teams have trained and played at a range of different venues throughout Surrey,” he said.
“We are delighted that the Surrey Sports Park, with its outstanding facilities and ideal location, will be able to accommodate all our needs under one roof. Whilst the Spectrum has been very supportive during its five years as host to the Heat’s BBL League games, unfortunately they could not accommodate all our current and future needs.”
