Birmingham City Council opens Northfield Leisure Centre


Northfield’s new Leisure Centre, featuring a 25m swimming pool, a teaching pool, a 75 station gym and a community room/studio space has officially opened to the public.

The £7.7m replacement of Northfield’s pool and fitness centre is part of a city-wide investment of nearly £40m by Birmingham City Council and is the third new complex to be completed. Birmingham Community Leisure Trust (BCLT), working in partnership with Birmingham City Council and Sport England, has overseen the project and will manage the new centre.

Cllr Ian Ward, leader of Birmingham City Council, said: “We make much of the city’s ability to host world-class sporting events, not least the Commonwealth Games in 2022 – but our approach to sport and leisure is to ensure just as much importance is placed on community facilities and grassroots participation.”
