Leisure Centre Woodley

Pellikaan won the design & build tender to replace the tired former leisure centre in Woodley.

The new Bulmershe Leisure Centre includes a six-lane 25-metre swimming pool, a teaching pool with a movable floor, a gym plus a ‘live well’ gym, a four-court sports hall, and an additional studio and a café. It benefits the whole community with its up-to-date, accessible and flexible facilities, as well as preventative health services. We handed over the centre a month early, with a final account that was lower than the contract sum.  The doors could open to the public 12 weeks earlier than anticipated.

“This new centre won’t just be a hub for sports – a place to improve or maintain your health. It will be a community focus for people in Woodley of all ages and sporting abilities to enjoy, and socialise, as well as somewhere to go for help to avoid health issues becoming a problem in the first place,” said Cllr Norman Jorgensen, executive member for environment, leisure and libraries.

Cllr Michael Firmager, deputy executive member for environment and leisure said: “We have built a centre that we are really proud of. It will be a community focus for the people of Woodley of all ages and sporting abilities to enjoy, and socialise as well.”
