Taking fitness to a new level with this leisure centre

NEW: Erdington Leisure Centre

A BRAND new sports facility in north Birmingham has opened its doors to the public for the very first time on September 4.

The new Erdington Leisure Centre has been designed to provide the whole community with a fresh, modern exercise and recreation venue.

The complex features a 25 metre swimming pool, a teaching pool, a 70 station gym and a community room with studio space. On offer are a wide range of fitness classes as well as facilities for the kids, including children’s holiday play activities and birthday parties also available.

The brand new building has taken just over a year to construct, and is opened almost a month ahead of schedule and on budget. The £7.5million replacement of Erdington’s leisure centre is part of a citywide investment of nearly £40million by Birmingham City Council and is the first of four new complexes to be completed.

Birmingham Community Leisure Trust (BCLT), working in partnership with Birmingham City Council (BCC), has overseen the project and will manage the new centre once it opens its doors.

BCLT chair, Brian Taylor, said: “The transformation of this Erdington site since we stood here last summer is truly impressive.

“I am very proud to hand over such a high quality, purpose built facility to our community and I invite everyone, whatever their age and whatever sport they enjoy, to take the opportunity to come and use this brilliant new centre.”

There will be a special open day on September 30 where members of the public will be able to try out free activities and be given the chance to be shown around the centre.
