Horsham District’s brand new £12.3 million sports and leisure centre – The Bridge – was officially declared open by Horsham District Council at a special event on the evening of Friday 19th October 2018.
The Bridge Leisure Centre opened its doors to the public for the first time at 9.00am on Saturday 20th October 2018.
Commenting on the brand new leisure centre Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture Cllr Jonathan Chowen said: “I am delighted that after such a substantial investment and years of planning and preparation, the community can now enjoy such an impressive, light and spacious sporting and leisure venue. I would like to take this opportunity once again to thank the many partners and local sports groups that have worked so closely with us to deliver such an amazing facility which will undoubtedly encourage more people to enjoy a more active lifestyle. Do now come along, take a good look around, share your impressions on social media and sign up for the many offers that are available and make the best use possible of this great sports and leisure hub.”
A thrilling new feature of the leisure centre will be the colourful and challenging new climbing facility known as Clip ’n Climb housed in a fantastic indoor space covering 154m2. No experience is required as a full safety briefing is given so both children and adults alike can enjoy the challenge of climbing up to a height of 7.5 meters. Look out for WOW features such as the Twister, Astroball, Stairway to Heaven and Leap of Faith.
The centre also includes a 70+ station gym, a six court sports hall, five outdoor sports courts, three studios including an indoor cycling studio, athletics track, café, meeting room and a range of junior activities.
An exciting space within the centre will be the new Sensory Room, designed to encourage users to develop and enjoy their senses. The room can transform from a calming and soothing place to an exciting and engaging interactive space full of light and sound.
There are also fully accessible Changing Places toilet facilities in addition to the more standard ‘disabled toilets’.
The new facility has been designed to meet the needs of a population that will grow significantly in the near future.
