We have exciting news…

Everybody Sport and Recreation has received notice from Cheshire East Council that, subject to formal approval, in Spring 2021 work will begin on the full and extensive refurbishment of Congleton Leisure Centre.

The centre  is going to be transformed – it will have a much bigger gym, two brand new swimming pools, up to date changing facilities, spa area, a bright and airy café and new group fitness studio spaces. The outdoor facilities such as entrance and car park will also see improvements.

Andrew Kolker, Chairman of Everybody Sport and Recreation commented, “Everybody welcomes the proposal for the Congleton Leisure Centre refurbishment and are pleased to hear that the work could begin in early 2021.

“We want to reassure customers that, in the event of any closure, they will have access to all of our other leisure venues in Cheshire East as part of their Everybody membership.

“We will work closely with clubs and our partners during this period. The feedback from our recent centre redevelopments, including Macclesfield and Alsager, has been extremely positive and this is another great opportunity to continue our joint work and investment with the council, for the benefit of our residents and our Everybody members.”

Neighbouring Leisure Centres at Macclesfield, Alderley Park and Alsager have both recently undergone full refurbishments, with both boasting new extended gyms with top of the range brand new equipment.

Macclesfield also hosts a Biocircuit studio to help you to make the most of each visit, an eight lane pool alongside a learner pool with gently sloping sides, a bright and spacious family changing village, new reception area, refurbished group fitness studios, and a modern spa and sauna area.

Everybody@Alderley Park is a purpose built leisure facility in the wonderful grounds of Alderley Park, Alderley Edge and features the first immersive cycling studio ‘The Trip’, gym with the latest Technogym equipment, sensopro, five concept range and more! Members will be able to access this facility in the event of any closure period.

The revised project would support local businesses with the ground works and demolition alone expected to inject around £1.3m into the local economy.
