Following a £550,000 capital investment from the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead, Windsor Leisure Centre opened the new ‘Tornado’ slide ready for the February school holidays.
The new slide is the latest addition in a series of new product launches following recent investments at the Windsor site. Leisure Focus Trust invested in a new catering offer with The Avenue restaurant opening to the public last weekend. Also, Indoor cyclists were able to welcome a new riding experience with a new suite of Life fitness indoor cycles.
Councillor Ross McWilliams, Cabinet member for housing, sport and leisure and community engagement, said: “The Royal Borough has invested in providing this fun and fantastic new facility, which adds to the wider expanded offer at Windsor Leisure Centre. The opening of the slide during the school holidays is most timely and I’m sure it will prove to be popular with families and encourage even more people to get active in the leisure pool."
Leisure Focus chief executive, Mark Camp-Overy, added: “After a difficult period for the industry, it is great to see the leisure’s centres in the Royal Borough full with activity once again. The new speed flume, with its integrated light design, is the latest addition to the leisure pool experience at Windsor. The site now boasts 3 fantastic types of slides plus water rapids, water cannons, water features for the little ones as well as the famous Windsor waves.
“Leisure services play a vital role in helping people of all ages within our communities stay healthy and active and this has taken on added importance as we emerge from the coronavirus pandemic. As a not-for-profit charitable organisation, Leisure Focus has been established to work with local communities, supporting clubs, organisations and individuals to achieve their sporting and lifestyle goals."
