Pelham's new Community Centre exceeding expectations

It's not even built yet and already the new Pelham Community Centre is filling up.

The town reporting one of the two arenas will have 100 percent prime time usage rate and the second arena is already seeing a 90 percent prime time usage rate.

The rates far exceed the usage estimates contained in a report commissioned by the town in 2015 when it was considering building the community centre.

The town has signed agreements with the Pelham Minor Hockey Association, Pelham Panthers Basketball Association, Pelham  Jr. B. Hockey Club and Southern Tier Admirals AAA Hockey.

The new facility will also see a return of the Welland Raiders Minor Lacrosse and the Niagara Centre Skating Club to the town.
