Consett Leisure Centre opens

Consett Leisure Centre opens

The second phase of Durham County Council’s £44m investment in leisure and education facilities has completed with the opening of the new Consett Academy campus. The facility joins the new Consett Leisure Centre, which launched at the site this summer.

Located in the heart of Consett on the site of the town’s former football ground, the two venues occupy a new single building designed by Seymour Harris Architecture, providing a new shared resource for the local community.

Consett Leisure Centre, which replaces the neighbouring Belle Vue Leisure Centre and swimming pool, includes the largest pool provision in County Durham with a 25m, six lane pool and a 20m by 8.5m pool, both with moveable floors; an interactive slide; splash water features as well as group and family changing facilities.

Other facilities include a 600sq m Lifestyle Fitness gym, two consultation rooms, dedicated changing facilities and three exercise studios.

The centre also features three glass-backed squash courts, also featuring a moveable wall for larger spaces as required, as well as an eight court sports hall for badminton, football, gymnastics and other indoor sports. Outside facilities include a 4G pitch and a multi-use games area for netball, football, basketball and other sports. A sprint track for jump and sprint practice is due to open early next year.
