Work to build Ravelin Sports Centre continues. Opening later this year, superb facilities include a 25m 8 lane swimming pool, 175 station fitness suite, climbing wall, ski simulator, café and community orchard.    

Swimmers will have views from the pool of the natural green spaces outside, creating the feeling of open-air swimming in the park.  The climbing wall, rising up through the centre of the building will set the challenge. A workout in the gym, virtual skiing or class with friends will be kept on track by the latest sports science technology.

Sustainable Sports Centre

Designed to the highest sustainability credentials for Sports Centres in the UK, this facility will be net zero carbon ready and has received a top rating of ‘Outstanding’ from BREEAM UK, the world’s leading sustainability assessment for buildings. The building can create renewable energy from roof solar panels and internal heat recovery systems. Pool water is re-used for toilet flushing and a new community orchard is part of a sustainable drainage system. A wildflower amphitheatre events space will develop biodiversity in the surrounding areas and we aim to have rooftop beehives if possible.
