Woolwich Leisure Centre 12,800m sq, three-storey facility is set to become one of the country’s largest urban leisure centres when it opens in 2025.
The new centre will provide Woolwich with first class sports facilities, supporting families, young people and adults to live active, healthy lifestyles. The facilities will include three swimming pools for various uses, wet changing facilities, spa and relaxation areas, two spin studios, two high-specification gym areas, a five-a-side 3G pitch, multi-use sports hall, two squash courts and Woolwich’s first indoor cricket facilities.
The centre will also feature flexible and accessible community spaces, along with a commercial café, kitchen, creche, and soft play area as well as two studios that will be linked to the neighbouring Tramshed theatre and community arts hub. The rooftop carries the planted green roof and 1,700m sq. of photovoltaic (PV) panels to generate sustainable power for the leisure centre. The building is targeting a BREEAM Outstanding rating, which will make it only the second leisure centre in the country of this standard.
