Leisure centres and sports facilities

King Alfred Leisure Centre storm damage

Following the damage caused by Storm Imogen, the swimming pools at the King Alfred Leisure Centre are closed.

The gym is now back in the main building. The sports halls and studio are open as normal too..

Alternative swimming facilities are available at Prince Regent Swimming complex and St Lukes Pool

Work is continuing to make the building watertight and repair damage.

Work should be finished by the middle of May. This timetable relies on dry weather without high winds, so could be delayed.
