Hambleton leisure centre pool

Northallerton leisure centre users will get a pre-Christmas boost when the new gym and toning suite opens – along with the improved swimming facilities.

They will open to the public on December 11 together with the new sauna and member changing area.

Phase three of the improvement project – to turn the existing gym into a new indoor cycling studio – will be completed in January.

The swimming pool is undergoing extra work as part of the project – the poolside is being resurfaced which has been a request from customers for some time.   Maintenance work on the waterslide steps, poolside barriers and wave machine is also being carried out, as well as refurbishment to the poolside showers and improvements to the refreshment area.

Hambleton District Council is working with development partner, Alliance Leisure Services Ltd, on the large scale redevelopment scheme

The lion’s share of the £2.5miliion project is being borne by the council itself with £213,000 coming from National Lottery funding through Sport England – which is specifically targeted at improving the swim change facilities.

Customers who wish to continue swimming during the closure have been encouraged to use the swimming pools at Bedale, Stokesley or Thirsk. More information is also available on
