As part of a £5.9 million investment project at Ivybridge Leisure Centre, we are proud to announce the start of works on the new state of the art pool. The frame for the building walls are now installed and the retractable roof parts are on site, ready to be put together and installed in the coming weeks.
This much-loved local centre will soon become home to a new 25m six lane swimming pool, which will boast an impressive glazed retractable roof and relaxing sundeck, one of only 2 in the UK.
With completion anticipated by late 2019, the 25-metre open-sky swimming pool will help to cast a wave over those repetitive gym routines. Offering a refreshing open-air atmosphere and the occasional glimpse of that rare Devon sun, this out-of-doors swimming experience will soon help to revive motivation for an active lifestyle.
Set to be one of only 2 swimming pools of this kind in the country, the innovative set up will boast retractable sunroof and an extensive sundeck, with the latest in sustainable swimming pool technology. The pool area will also benefit from new changing rooms complete with lockers, showers and changing cubicles.
Visitors can also look forward to the opening of a new steam room and sauna, the perfect space for rediscovering calm and relaxation after smashing that high intensity workout. With a range of facilities and a diverse timetable that's continuing to grow, the project will also see refreshed squash courts as well as the extension and refurbishment of the much-loved spin studio.
