The gym at Spence Steet Sports Centre will be closed from Monday 14 March 2022, due to major refurbishment works. Works will take place thanks to an investment of £1.8 million to develop more of our facilities within the city. The gym is expected to reopen in September 2022.

The swimming pool will remain open as normal throughout.

  • A 50+ station gym
  • State of the art cardiovascular equipment
  • Functional training space
  • Free weights
  • A group exercise studio
  • Refurbished changing rooms

We do not currently have a firm date for reopening; however, it is expected to reopen in September 2022.

This phase of the project will focus 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.
