Sutton gamers will now have a place to call home after a new Esports arena opened last week.

Tom Horne runs Belong Gaming Arena, which opened in the Times Square Shopping Centre on November 1 and says while he wants to bring a community feel to the site, it will also be a place for competitive gamers.

"My personal goal for this arena is to create a community and home for all gamers and none gamers," he said.

"I want this to be a place where everyone feels welcomed, whether they are taking part in the gaming, or just spectating.

"We will host community events such as lock-ins, where we do gaming overnight until the early hours in the morning as well."

The Sutton site will have 50 stations for people to people to play, which makes it the largest Belong Gaming Arena out there.

"We don't just offer Esports in our gaming arena's though," Mr Horne added.

"We host private events from publishers, birthday parties and other private bookings.

"We offer all different types of gaming experiences to everyone. Whether you want to play solo, or as part of the community."
