Bingham Arena Leisure Centre will open its doors on Monday February 20 hosting a new 25 metre six lane swimming pool, teaching pool, fitness centre, spin and exercise studios, café and community hall.
The new £13 million facility on Chapel Lane in the town will be managed by Lex Leisure who are ready to give a warm welcome to new and existing members and visitors.
Current memberships and bookings at the Toot Hill site will transfer over to the new state-of-the-art 5,500 sq m leisure centre which will be home to an 80-station fitness studio with two group exercise studios and an indoor cycling studio.
It will also be the first facility locally to welcome significant swimming galas, competitions and events, thanks to a 330-seater swimming pool spectating area, presenting new opportunities with swim instructors qualified to Swim England standard.
The teaching pool also ensures there is something for everyone no matter age or ability and lessons will be available seven days a week.
The venue will also be home to Bingham Jubilee Community Hall with support from Bingham Town Council. The community hall can host a range of events for audiences up to 300 people so named to celebrate the late Queen Elizabeth II’s reign and is courtesy of part-funding from D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership.
Leader of Rushcliffe Borough Council Cllr Simon Robinson welcomed the news of its opening.
He said: “We can’t wait to open this wonderful new venue for all Bingham and Rushcliffe residents that will provide contemporary facilities the local community can be proud of at the heart of one of our growing towns.
“Bingham Jubilee Community Hall will host a large stage with provision for theatre performances, stage curtains and contemporary sound and lighting to suit a wide range of events and activities. This really is a venue fit for Bingham for 2023.”
New members can sign up for a membership for just £37.50 per month at www.leisurecentre.com/bingham-arena/founder-offer with the price frozen for three years and residents can find out more at www.leisurecentre.com/bingham-arena
The current Bingham Leisure Centre at Toot Hill School will close although facilities will remain available for outdoor sports including hockey, tennis and athletics and sports hall activities outside of school hours. These will also be managed by Lex Leisure.
Lex Leisure will be communicating with existing users and clubs via newsletters and social media channels over the coming weeks to confirm arrangements of the switch to the new site.
Offices at the new Bingham Enterprise Centre, adjacent to the new Bingham Arena Leisure Centre on Chapel Lane in the town are now open for business, courtesy of funding from the European Regional Development Fund and Local Growth Funding from D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership.
The 12 self-contained high spec fibre connected office suites over two floors range in size from 47 square metres to 108 square metres and have on site parking.
