The site includes Bingham Jubilee Community Hall which can host a range of events for audiences up to 300 people, courtesy of part-funding from D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership and support from Bingham Town Council. 


Leader of Rushcliffe Borough Council Cllr Simon Robinson visited the site ahead of its opening to take a look at the brand-new facilities.

He said: “I’m absolutely delighted to see the progress we’ve made with this wonderful new facility for the people of Bingham and Rushcliffe at a time new investment in our growing communities is so important.  


“The Bingham community will benefit from this new site and with a prominent location right by the A46, it can be accessed by those further afield too.

“This site has something for everybody from swimming to the gym to a fitness suite and other exercise and then there’s Bingham Jubilee Community Hall also providing a great space for events and will be available to book soon.


“The six-lane swimming pool features really good spectator seating for galas and competitions, I think it looks terrific and will attract a lot of talented athletes to practise and compete here. 


“As well as the leisure centre, we wanted to offer the employment side as well at this site so the office space at the Enterprise Centre was vital. 


“We completed research prior that found there was a big demand for businesses who wanted to stay in the town so the twelve new office spaces on site will help to retain local talent. 


“These buildings are a real flagship for green technologies too and we’ve invested in a carbon clever and energy-efficient site we’re proud the building has 78% lower carbon emission rates than other leisure sites locally. 


“Bingham Arena is a great new facility, come and see it for yourself when it opens its doors later this month.”


Current memberships and bookings at the Toot Hill site will transfer over to the new state-of-the-art 5500 sq m leisure centre which will be home to an 80-station fitness studio with two group exercise studios and an indoor cycling studio.


The current Bingham Leisure Centre at Toot Hill School will close although facilities will remain available for outdoor sports including hockey, tennis and athletics and sports hall activities outside of school hours. These will also be managed by Lex Leisure.


Glen Hall, Parkwood Leisure’s Managing Director, said: “The new Bingham Arena is a fantastic addition to the Borough’s leisure facilities, and further enhances the leisure, health and fitness provision for the community of Bingham and the surrounding area. 


“It’s also a great showcase for what can be done to improve the energy efficiency of leisure facilities, which is something that we’re working hard to do across all our sites.” 


Lex Leisure will continue to communicate with existing users and clubs via newsletters and social media channels over the coming weeks to confirm arrangements of the switch to the new site. 


The offices at the new Bingham Enterprise Centre are now open for business courtesy of funding from the European Regional Development Fund and Local Growth Funding from D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership. 


The 12 self-contained high-spec fibre-connected office suites over two floors range in size from 47 square metres (506 square feet) to 108 square metres (1,163 square feet) and have on-site parking.
