XC is an extreme sports facility based in Hemel Hempstead

XC cost £5.25m to build, £5m was from the government’s ‘MyPlace’ programme and the remaining £250k has been invested by Dacorum Sports Trust. Sportspace, Dacorum Sports Trust, manages XC working in partnership with Services for Young People and Dacorum Borough Council. All the facilities have been geared towards the youth of today with an aim that XC will be a ‘one stop shop’ for teenagers.

Alongside XC’s impressive extreme sports skate park, 14m climbing wall, indoor caving system, bouldering and high ropes, the XC also features a teen focused health centre with counselling rooms, a music recording studio, and internet cafe. Young people have been involved in the plans of XC since the beginning to make sure the centre provides everything they need!
