Bingham Arena Leisure Centre opens to the public

The new £13 million Bingham Arena Leisure Centre is now open hosting a new 25-metre six-lane swimming pool, teaching pool, fitness centre, spin and exercise studios, café and community hall.

It is the first facility locally to welcome significant swimming galas, competitions and events, thanks to a 330-seater swimming pool spectating area, presenting new opportunities with swim instructors qualified to Swim England standard.

Bingham Arena Leisure Centre and Jubilee Community Hall are now open

The leisure centre facility was built with green technologies and has 78% lower carbon emission rates than other leisure sites locally.

Leader of Rushcliffe Borough Council Cllr Simon Robinson is delighted the new facilities are now open for residents and families across the Borough to use and enjoy. 

Members can now use the state of the art Boditrax body composition and activity tracking platform

He said: “This is a wonderful new facility for the people of Bingham and Rushcliffe at a time investment in our growing communities is so important.  

“This site has something for everybody from swimming to the gym to an 80-station fitness studio with two group exercise studios and an indoor cycling studio and then there’s Bingham Jubilee Community Hall also providing a great space for events!

“There is a state-of-the-art Boditrax body composition and activity tracking platform too which members can use for free.

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

“We’ve invested in a carbon-clever and energy-efficient site, setting an example for others to follow in investing in new infrastructure in the right way.

“Air source heat pumps, combined heat and power technology, water efficiency measures, LED lighting and energy efficient building materials are all in the building’s new design.


“Bingham Arena is a great new facility, come and see it for yourself and take advantage of the founder membership offer which is available for a limited time.”


The former Bingham Leisure Centre at Toot Hill School has closed although facilities are still open for community use for outdoor sports including hockey, tennis and athletics and sports hall activities outside of school hours. These will also be managed by Lex Leisure.

Membership and bookings from the Toot Hill site have now transferred over to Bingham Arena. 


Lex Leisure will continue to communicate with existing users and clubs via comms and social media channels to confirm arrangements for the switch to the new site.


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.” 


The offices at the new Bingham Enterprise Centre are open for business from 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.
