Keep up to date with the development works
Keep up to date with all the re-development works and how this will impact activities and timetables here.
The £13.4 million improvement project for Eppings Sports & Leisure Centres will include the following key developments at Epping Sports Centre
- New 80 station gym - this will be located in the space that is the current gym and multi purpose room, doubling the size of the current gym area.
- New purpose built studio - this will be located where squash courts 1 & 4 used to be
- Refurbished changing rooms
- New purpose built group cycling studio - to be located where the current lounge area is
- New crèche facilities - to be located behind the new cycling studio
- Newly designed Reception area
Courts 1 & 4 will be unavailable from 20th November as work commences to create the new dance studio.
To ensure that we can maximise squash court bookings we are changing to 40 minute booking time. The rational for proposing this is to ensure that we are still able to maintain a balanced programme of use that caters for the needs of casual users, clubs, schools and courses.
All squash court bookings are now be peak times and last court availability is 9.20pm Monday - Friday.
There will be no access to the lounge area from Monday 20th November whilst work commences on the new Indoor Cycling Studio and creche areas, please use the balcony for seating.
On Friday 15th December the gym will be closed whilst we move the equipment to a temporary location in the Sports Hall on courts 3 & 4.
We have tried to include as much equipment as possible and have ensured that there is a good balance of cardio, strength and functional kit to ensure you can make the most of your workouts during this time.
If there is anything you are unsure of ask our instructors and they can advise on alternative exercises to meet your goals and keep you on track.
Works on the new gym will continue throughout January and February and we will anticipate opening at the end of February. We'll update you on the exact date once it is confirmed.
The new Indoor Cycling Studio and Dance Studio will open with an all new timetable on Tuesday 2nd January. We are currently finalising the new class programme that will include additional classes and Virtual Cycling. Please check back for details.
Works on the changing rooms will follow on once the main studio and gym works are complete. Further details and dates will follow, please check back for details.
