£28m Moberly Sports Centre opens in North London

The Moberly Sports Centre in London – which includes the first newly-built public swimming pool in Westminster in almost 40 years – has opened its doors.

Built by Willmott Dixon and managed by Everyone Active, the centre includes a six-lane 25m swimming pool, a 13m teaching pool with movable floor and an eight-court sports hall with retractable spectator seating for up to 500 people.

There is also a health club with a 100-station gym floor and exercise and dance studios, a dedicated gymnastics hall and a multi-use room suitable for sports such as boxing.

Owned by Westminster City Council, the centre has been designed to meet the highest levels of accessibility for disabled users, both in terms of entry and changing facilities.

The changing facilities and toilets are provided through “Changing Places,” a group of organisations working to support the rights of people with learning for physical disabilities. The spaces are created for people with complex needs and allow both the user and their carer easy access to the facility.

“Physical activity is a great way not just to get fit, but to improve mental health, beat stress and get motivated," said councillor David Harvey, Westminster Council’s cabinet member for economic development.

"Moberly will serve the whole community, and the range of facilities for people of all ages and abilities will enable it to do just that.”

The centre was opened this week by British super-middleweight boxing champion James DeGale and double Olympic champion gymnast Max Whitlock.
