Your new Urmston

We are really excited...

To announce that Trafford Council has given the thumbs up to investing £6.4 million in a total transformation of your leisure centre at Urmston, which will bring it bang up to date with light, bright, modern facilities and activities.The plans are part of a wider investment in leisure facilities across the entire borough, which is likely to see around £30 million ploughed into offering you more up to date leisure, sporting and fitness activities.

"Regular physical activity can make an enormous difference to how long you live and how much you enjoy those extra years of healthy life". - ‘A Physical Activity Vision for Trafford', Trafford Council'

Proposals for Urmston Leisure Centre's transformation include a striking new reception area that will be the ‘heart' of the building.  The double height, central hub, with generous cafe and seating, will give you the opportunity to relax, socialise and enjoy a drink or snack with a bird's eye view of all the activities
on offer.  

The Plans

Ground Floor

The new design totally re thinks the traditional leisure centre concept of rooms off corridors.  Instead we will have a series of highly visible, colourful activity ‘pods’ within a glazed box that will also form the front of the entire leisure centre.

The ground floor plans are for an open, flowing space, where a soft play zone and children’s party rooms are located below an open, 8m high clip and climb, adventure climbing experi-ence, offering a fun, challenging and safe activity that’s ideal for all the family from the age of four upwards.

It will also be available to book for parties and corporate events. The ground floor plans also include a wellness studio, which will bring something totally new to Trafford, offering health-focussed training that can be used by anyone from elite athletes to those who have never exercised before to improve all round fitness, but also by those needing physical and medical support with their activity regime.


First Floor

This new extension, which would create a first floor area to the front of the building, will also house additional fitness suites, complete with a functional training zone, an additional dance studio and fitness changing.

Final designs will be developed as part of the next steps and this is where we need your help and feeback. 

We will also put plans in place to ensure you can continue to access your health, fitness and leisure activities throughout the redevelopment. Lifestyles are changing and we know families are looking for activities they can do together, as well as a leisure destination where there's something for everyone.  These proposed facilities at your new Urmston truly will make it even easier for you and your family to enjoy being active, whatever your age or preferred activity.
