Making a splash at Rossington Leisure Centre
Visitors to the newly refurbished Rossington Leisure Centre are making a splash this week (October 24).
The centre has reopened following an investment of £750,000 into the venue, formerly Rossington Community Swimming Pool, as part of the Leisure Centre improvement programme.
The new look centre has a new changing village and group change area and a refurbished pool hall.
Rossington Leisure Centre has also benefitted from environmental improvements with new windows, doors, and a building management system as well as improved ventilation.
Cabinet member for Public Health, Leisure, Culture and Planning at Doncaster Council, Cllr Nigel Ball, said: “It’s fantastic news that Rossington Leisure Centre has now re-opened and I hope as many residents as possible get the opportunity to test out the new facilities.
“Local leisure centres are important features of our communities, allowing residents to look after their own health and wellbeing ahead of, and during, the winter period. On top of the health benefits, leisure centres offer a social setting for many and it would be fantastic to see Rossington residents take advantage of the new facilities.”
Michael Hart, chief executive of Doncaster Culture and Leisure Trust (DCLT), who manages the venue said: “It was wonderful to see so many people come to try out the pool at Rossington Leisure Centre.
“We know how much our customers value having access to leisure facilities in the local area and we are proud to be working with Doncaster Council to be upgrading the local leisure offering.”
Another popular addition to the venue is the introduction of refreshments which are available from a new food and beverage outlet.
Michael added: “Work is well underway on the changing places unit, and we know that as soon as this area is opened the venue will be able to welcome many more new visitors.
“Thank you to all of our customers who have visited already, and we look forward to welcoming many more back to the venue over the coming weeks and months.”
