Update on the opening of Bingham Leisure Centre

Rushcliffe Borough Council updates on the progress of the site.

Bingham Arena and Enterprise Centre will now be fully operational in 2023.


Work on the site continues after the project experienced unforeseen delays in recent weeks, in line with national challenges within the construction industry including on utility installations, labour supply shortages and supply chain materials for the site. 

Rushcliffe Borough Council are working with main contractor Willmott Dixon to be able to confirm an opening date as soon as possible.

Spectator seating for 330 people will accompany the pool and present new opportunities with swim instructors qualified to Swim England standard.
