New improvements coming to Lutterworth Sports Centre

NEW improvements are coming to Lutterworth Sports Centre.

Refurbishments and upgrades to the poolside areas will now go ahead after a new grant was awarded.

Showers, toilets and changing cubicles will be upgraded, and improvements will be made to the sports hall floor and reception area.

It comes in addition to the new gym equipment and additional exercise machines which are currently being installed.

The poolside revamps have been made possible now that £250,000 initially set aside for solar panels at Harborough Leisure Centre was reallocated, due to Sport England’s Swimming Pool Support Fund awarding a new grant to fund that project.

Coun Phil Knowles, Leader of Harborough District Council, said: “I am thrilled that further funding has been identified to provide additional enhancements. The project is progressing well and the feedback so far has been excellent.

“We are pleased to deliver on our promise to invest in the mental and physical health of our communities by providing opportunities for prehabilitation and rehabilitation support in addition to enhancing the current provision for all ages.

“Outreach projects are also being developed to benefit our rural communities, whilst the solar panelling and new LED lighting are welcome steps forward in our ongoing commitment to fight climate change.”

The £5.9million capital investment into HDC’s two leisure centres – in collaboration with its leisure provider Everyone Active – was confirmed in December 2023.

Matthew Hopkin, Everyone Active’s contract manager, said: “The refurbishment project is advancing well, with temporary gyms and alternative class space provided.

“Feedback from the local community, both on social media and in person has been very positive. We are working hard to support visitors to both centres and deliver these exciting upgrades.”
