Making a Community Splash!
The state-of-the-art facility creates a lasting legacy for community health and wellbeing with its 50m Olympic-sized swimming pool, as well as a 25m diving pool, community swimming pool and seats for up to 1,000 spectators.
A great selection of facilities.
The aquatics centre includes three activity studios, two 4-court sports hall, 108-station gym, a 25-station ladies-only gym, indoor cycling studio, dry driving centre, sauna/steam room, new football pitch and changing facilities, new urban park and children’s play area and a café.
Work on the £73 million project has completed in this phase and is now in use; but further work will be carried out and completed for it’s second purpose in spring 2023.
It is anticipated the facility will also be used by University of Wolverhampton students for teaching and will become a home venue for representatives of the University through WLV Sports.
Strengthening a community.
The new centre brings a host of benefits to Sandwell, creating local jobs, investment in the community, taking on apprentices and engaging with schools to provide work experience placements.
