News: Final lap for new Rotherham sports facilities


Rotherham Council is now on the last length of its ambitious plans to provide state-of-the-art swimming and leisure facilities for local people. New centres at Aston, Maltby and St. Ann's near the town centre are set to open in the coming months. The flagship Rotherham Leisure Complex will open on Wednesday October 29. Built at St. Ann's near the town centre, it will offer a choice of leisure activities including two pools, an indoor climbing tower, a sports hall, squash courts, a fitness suite and a dance studio. Swimmers will have the choice of enjoying leisure water, incorporating a 'Lazy River' and a spa, and a separate 70-metre flume, a six-lane 25 metre main pool with a moveable floor to allow for different uses, plus a 12 metre teaching pool. The four squash courts will have two moveable walls to allow the courts to be combined into larger spaces suitable for other activities such as aerobics, while the 90-station fitness suite will have a separate 127 square metre dance studio. The climbing centre will offer a challenging 12 metre climbing wall. The £11m Rotherham Leisure Complex is being developed through a partnership between DC Leisure and Rotherham Borough Council.
