Braywick Leisure Centre

The council is creating a state-of-the-art replacement for the ageing Magnet Leisure Centre at Braywick Park. The new Braywick Leisure Centre will provide a space for everyone to enjoy sports, arts and cultural events and is due to open Summer 2020.

It will include bigger and better facilities than the Magnet Leisure Centre but plans to use 70 per cent less energy than the current building.

Key features include: a 10-lane swimming pool – up from eight lanes at the Magnet – larger training and splash pools, a 200-station gym, a large sports hall, improved accessibility for disabled users and sports teams, and twice as much car parking.
