Perdiswell Leisure Centre

  • Perdiswell Leisure Centre
    Speller Metcalfe was selected from an initial shortlist of nine companies for the contract to build a new £10.5 million, eight-lane swimming pool complex as an extension to Perdiswell Leisure Centre in Worcester (contract value £9m). 
     
    The new centre provides a massive boost to the city of Worcester’s sporting credentials, guaranteeing it will become an important new destination for regional competition-level swimming. 
     
    The main 25 x 17m eight-lane pool boasts poolside seating for 284 spectators with a further 118 seats around the poolside for swimmers. The pool hall also hosts a new 18x10 metre teaching pool with a movable floor – creating flexibility for swimmers of all ages and abilities with direct wheelchair access into each pool.
     
    As well as a wet changing village to support the pool area, the new extension houses a large fitness gym with 110-120 stations, fully refurbished eight-court sports hall, three separate fitness studios and 2 teaching rooms. The second phase, the refurbishment of the original centre, is due to complete in March 2017.
