The first phase of work seeing the foundations laid for Littlehampton's brand new leisure centre has now started with a formal ground breaking cermony. 

The facilities at the new multi-million pound centre will include:

  • 8 lane 25-metre pool
  • Training pool (including moveable floor)
  • 80-85 station gym
  • 1 dance studio (capability for dividing into 2 spaces)
  • 1 spinning studio
  • Café
  • Multi-purpose / meeting room

The centre will be fully accessible and built in accordance with Sport England’s standards.

Of the project; Arun District Council’s Chairman, Councillor Mrs Jacky Pendleton said: “This is a fantastic milestone in the delivery of what will be a superb centre. This is the location that the community favoured and it will sit well in our award-winning Mewsbrook Park.”

After a long time in planning, it is wonderful to see all the hard work is coming to fruition and work has started. We think that the proposed plan will make the Littlehampton Leisure Centre a world-class facility within the south of the UK so we are hugely proud to be involved.

More than just leisure operators, Freedom Leisure is committed to providing affordable, accessible leisure and sport opportunities for everyone. We’d like to thank Arun District Council for enabling this wonderful centre to happen and we cannot wait to be managing it.
