The new Hinckley Leisure Centre was completed in May 2016 in conjunction with main building contractor Pellikaan Construction Ltd.
The 8-lane, 25 metre main pool with viewing areas as well as the learner pool have moveable floors. Further wet facilities include; a family splash area, sauna and steam rooms. The dry sports facilities include an 8-court sports hall, large gymnasium, climbing wall and several dance and spinning studios.
In addition, there is a multi-purpose meeting room, a cafe and dedicated office space for the operator as well as the council. The area around the new leisure centre is landscaped and a clear, grassed play area suitable for school and community use was formed, as well as car parking facilities.
The building was the first leisure centre in the UK to use LED lighting throughout and achieved a ‘Very Good’ BREEAM rating. In 2016, the centre won Large Non-Residential Scheme of the Year at the ProCon Leicestershire Awards.
