The Stafflex Arena is located in the middle of the Yorkshire countryside just 8 miles out of Huddersfield in the Farnley Estate. Formerly known as the Storthes Hall Sports Complex, The Stafflex Arena is now owned by The Leslie Foundation and is home to over 30 amateur football clubs. It is also the base for Huddersfield Star Wheelers as well as Huddersfield Town Ladies Football Team.
Other than football, The Stafflex Arena hosts a variety of events including Orienteering, cross-country cycling and Crufts Dog Show (regional heat).
We are always keen to hear from anyone interested in making use of our fabulous facilities be it for business or pleasure and are particularly keen to hear from charity groups looking to host community events in the great outdoors.

“Stafflex has a long tradition of sponsoring local projects across a wide range of activities.  The set up at Storthes Hall Park and the commitment shown to helping grassroots sports, community groups and especially the disabled, is just breath-taking. We see a great fit between our values of ‘helping others’ and the values that drive the foundation forward. It’s a major investment for us but we believe it to be the most exciting partnership we have ever signed up to. We can’t wait to get involved”, says Brian Stahelin, managing director and founder at Stafflex.
