New Soft Play Centre

A brand new soft play centre is set to open this year at Hyndburn Leisure Centre in Accrington. Half of the sports hall at the centre will be converted to accommodate a new four storey soft play area, which will include a baby zone and a toddler zone, along with the main play area suitable for children up to 11 years old. Work is set to start in the new year, with Hyndburn Leisure Trust hoping to see work completed during the spring.

Steve Tanti, Chief Executive of Hyndburn Leisure, said, “This is great news for families and children in the area, soft play areas are extremely popular and this new one is set to be a fantastic facility for both play and learning. The leisure centre already provides lots of activities for children, and this new soft play area is set to bring in new parents, carers, childminders, nurseries and schools with their children.”

Steve added; “With our external funding continuing to reduce year on year, Hyndburn Leisure must continue to develop innovative ideas like this to create new income streams. Four courts in the sports hall will be converted as part of the redevelopment, but we are confident we can still provide space for the majority of our users on the remaining four courts and in other parts of the building.

The centre will remain open while work is completed, and there will be minimal disruption with the remaining half of the sports hall open whilst work is ongoing.

Local people are being asked to come up with possible names for the new play area. Hyndburn Leisure Trust is inviting potential users of the facility to send in their ideas for naming the play centre. We’ll consider all ideas, and if we choose one of the names provided by customers we’ll give the winner a free family pass for a month when we open. You can find more details about the play centre and how to send in your entry on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/HyndburnLeisureCentre

The new soft play centre, set to open in spring, will be open 7 days a week and available for a range of activities including parties.

All Hyndburn Leisure Staff

Notice of information for the change of use of half of Hyndburn Leisure Centre Sports Hall.  

Hyndburn Leisure Centre is celebrating its 40th year in January 2017. Originally Hyndburn Sports Centre, it was the only 8 court sports hall in Lancashire. During the last decade, there have been numerous halls opened up for community use where Badminton and other sports are being played, these halls are mainly attached to schools, Accrington and Rossendale College have also unveiled a multipurpose hall, available for community use.

Hyndburn Leisure have been set challenging targets by a reduction in grant funding from Hyndburn Borough council of £350,000 by April 2018.

We have had a sustained approach to reducing expenditure and increasing income in recent years and have implemented many different ways of investing to save money across all of our sites.  The recent swimming pool redevelopment being an example. We must also continue to look at more commercial ways of making our facilities sustainable.

This will include the change of use of half the sports hall to a children’s soft play area. Work on the change of use will begin in February of 2017, and we will inform all club users of the dates in due course.

We will strive to accommodate the majority of our current use on the four remaining courts in the sports hall and we also have additional capacity by way of 2 courts in the table tennis centre.
