Altrincham Leisure Centre – Projects

Altrincham Leisure Centre

Client: Trafford Council
Sector: Leisure
Location: Altrincham, Manchester
Status: In Progress
Internal Team: Martin Bransby

Planning permission has recently been granted for the major refurbishment of Altrincham Leisure Centre.

The transformation of the old centre will create a modern facility with a 25m swimming pool, a 20m learner pool, a pool pod to improve accessibility, a combined lobby area with pool viewing and café, a wet village change, an inclusive changing places toilet and a health and wellbeing spa facility. There will also be a wellness assessment room, an enlarged fitness suite, fitness changing and dry change areas, two flexible studio spaces, an immersive indoor cycle studio, a four-court sports hall and storage, a gymnastics hub and staff rooms and offices.

The facility will be rechristened Move Altrincham after its refurbishment.

Sport England has already granted its support for the scheme and the refurbishment is expected to take up to 18 months.

This development is fantastic news for the people of Altrincham and the surrounding areas. Health and wellbeing is of major importance to Trafford Council and I am delighted that we are a step closer to being able to completely transform Altrincham Leisure Centre into an amazing 21st century facility for everyone to enjoy.
