Refurbishment works

Aylestone Leisure Centre is undergoing a major refurbishment to its entrance and studio, thanks to an further investment of £1.94 million to develop more of our facilities within the city.

When will it happen?

The project to improve Aylestone Leisure Centre will take place across several months, starting in November with the studio and entrance expected to be fully completed in March 2023.

What’s going to change? 

  • Brand new entrance, with new layout and features 
  • Functional studio, with new sound system and lighting

Frequently asked questions

The entrance will relocate to the sports hall and directional signage will be provided. We’re also updating the studio, and as a result we may have to move some group exercise classes to different locations within Aylestone. Any changes to group exercise class will be advertised when a class is booked and on the site class timetables.

We hope to minimise any changes to ensure there is little disruption to our members.

Yes, the swimming pool will continue to operate as normal throughout the project.

You can freeze your membership at £3 charge, however please note, during the refurbishment all our facilities will still be open.

We do not currently have a firm date for completion; however, it is expected the entrance way will be ready in January 2023 and the studio set to be completed in March 2023.

This phase of the project has focused on improving and expanding the gyms at Spence Street and Braunstone leisure centres, as well as improving the studio and entrance area at Aylestone leisure centre. In addition, £213,000 has been approved for energy reduction measures at Spence Street which will be undertaken at the same time.

With this investment we are aiming to meet the needs of the local community, by expanding the space of our centres, creating more opportunities for local people to come together and get active.
