Other Info:
The Leisure Centre building was opened on 11th Jan 1986 by the then Major of Birmingham Councillor Frank Carter but am not sure if the track was built at the same time. The infield is an all-weather football/hockey pitch so no throws are possible. Sparkhill Harriers have their club house in the Fox Hollies Fitness Centre which is a separate building to the main Leisure Centre. The track was resurfaced in 2013.

Last update: 15/11/1999
