Press Release

Fareham Leisure Centre

18 October 2021

Fareham Leisure Centre welcomes visitors following official relaunch event

Everyone Active, in partnership with Fareham Borough Council, is delighted to welcome people back to the newly refurbished Fareham Leisure Centre following its official relaunch weekend on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 October.

The Mayor of Fareham, Councillor Pamela Bryant was joined by BMX Freestyle Olympic medallist, Declan Brooks, to unveil the refurbished centre for the first time.

The £6.33 million investment has been funded by the Council and features state-of-the-art facilities including a ‘Top Rock’ climbing wall for children and adults, soft play area for younger children and an indoor splash pad which is suitable for those with accessible needs. The investment has also enabled the gym to be refurbished and extended and a new Fortis Studio to be created. This studio provides gym goers with high-intensity interval training using Speedflex machines, which do not put any impact through the joints and help avoid injury and post-workout pain.

At the fun-filled open weekend, visitors had the opportunity to try out the new facilities as well as a variety of activities for free, including family swim sessions and various exercise classes.

Executive Member for Leisure and Community at Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Sue Walker said: “I am delighted to see Fareham Leisure Centre benefit from this injection of investment. It has been a social hub for more than 40 years and is now set to continue this legacy for many years to come. I hope that the fantastic new facilities will inspire more people to get active and excel in sport.”

Ryan Grant, Contract Manager at Everyone Active commented: “We’re so excited to welcome people back to the refurbished Fareham Leisure Centre. It will be great to see the local community benefiting from all the fantastic facilities we have to offer and to see the centre helping the community improve their health and wellbeing.”
