Sir Ben Ainslie to open new £4.2 million sports centre at Truro School
Sir Ben Ainslie will be visiting Truro School on Wednesday October 23 to officially open their new £4.2 million sports centre which has been named after the Olympic gold medallist.
Sir Ben is the most successful Olympic sailor in history, winning 4 consecutive Gold medals - one gained during the London 2012 Olympic Games.
He has recently made headlines with his win against New Zealand in the America’s Cup, but he will be returning to his Cornish roots in order to officiate the grand opening of Truro School’s Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre.
Andrew Gordon-Brown, Headmaster of Truro School, said: “It is fantastic that we are able to provide such state of the art facilities, not only for our pupils but for the community as well. Having Sir Ben officially open the new sports centre is a real honour as he represents that dreams can be realised with hard work – something we promote to our students throughout the school. We are certain he will inspire our pupils and others in our community who are most welcome to use our facilities.”

With an investment of £4.2 million and taking 12 months to complete, the Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre boasts: two county standard and glass-backed squash courts with viewing gallery; a large fitness suite with state-of-the-art equipment; sprung wooden floor dance and exercise studio; five changing rooms; class room facilities; and an eight court badminton centre - one of the largest in Cornwall.
The new centre has been built for the pupils of the school as well as the wider community, made available this August - costing only £15 a month to use.
Educated at Truro School, Sir Ben moved to Cornwall from Cheshire at an early age and learnt to sail in nearby Falmouth, before becoming a national sailing success - winning many gold medals within his career.
He is also a keen ambassador and role model for the sport, promoting sailing nationally whilst competing at the highest level.
