New state of the art leisure centre due to open in West Bromwich

DC Leisure has been appointed by Sandwell Council to design, build and operate an £11 million leisure centre and swimming pool in West Bromwich in partnership with Pellikaan Construction. Due to open late Spring 2014, the new development will feature a 25m pool with a learner pool, sauna and steam room, a four-court sports hall, a 100-station fitness suite, two dance studios and activity rooms, an indoor children’s adventure play centre and a cafe.

The planning application is shortly to be submitted, with building work starting early next year. Sandwell Council's deputy leader and cabinet member for strategic resources, Councillor Steve Eling says: “DC Leisure is a major player in the leisure industry with all the skills, knowledge and expertise to give Sandwell a state of the art pool complex. I look forward to working with them over the coming years.”

Peter Kirkham, Development Director at DC Leisure, adds: “We are pleased to be working in partnership with Sandwell Council to deliver an exciting and excellent new leisure centre in West Bromwich, which will benefit the local community. The new leisure centre will bring a variety of sport and fitness facilities to all ages and will welcome those looking to adopt healthier, more active lifestyles this year and beyond.”

The leisure centre and swimming pool will be located on the corner of Moor Street and Barton Street in West Bromwich.

DC Leisure, who currently operate over 100 leisure facilities around the UK, have also over the last six years designed and built 11 new centres worth £110 million.
