The brand new £25m Wycombe Leisure Centre has reopened to the public. Wycombe District Council Chairman, Cllr Ian McEnnis, cut the ribbon and handed over the keys to Centre Manager Stuart Lee from centre operator Places for People Leisure at 10am on Tuesday 7th January.
Centre users will now be able to scale the 10m high climbing wall and play a wide variety of different sports in the multi use 12 court sports hall. The sports hall can be used for a range of different activities including badminton, football, basketball, cricket in the nets and there will also be weekly sessions for children to jump around an inflatable play area.
Residents will be able to get in shape using the 150 station gym, featuring equipment from Precor, Matrix Fitness, Escape Fitness, Octane Fitness, Queenax, Gravity and Les Mills and work up a sweat in fitness classes held in the spin and dance studios. The launch of a brand new workout class last week, ‘Fight Klub’ saw over 60 attendees turn up to trial the first session. After a fun work out, visitors will then be able to kick back and relax in the sauna and steam room, and the new café area by the open reception area.
The new facility replaces the former Wycombe Sports Centre, which was closed last month after 40 years. The new centre features a 50m swimming pool, which will allow youngsters to splash around in the community pool and the new Splash Pad zone, in addition to boasting several squash courts, a four-rink bowls centre and meeting rooms.
