£1.25m investment at Rugeley -- state of the art 3G pitch and improved swimming facilities

Rugeley Leisure Centre pool is reopening, and it’s better than ever!

Scroll down to read about our pool reopening progress and the opening of our fantastic 3G all-weather pitch.

Reopening of our much-loved pool

We are pleased to announce the reopening of the much-loved swimming pool at Rugeley Leisure Centre on the week commencing 28th February. The pool takes pride of place within our centre and we can’t wait to unveil what has been almost two years of hard work, problem solving and careful restoration works alongside significant investment.

We’ve installed a new filtration, heating, hot water and energy system and brand-new pool surround allowing us to future proof our much-loved facility for our wonderful communities and for generations to come.

We’ve all been hit hard by the pool closure and we’d like to thank YOU for your patience and understanding - it really is appreciated.

We will be opening for public swim sessions on the weekend of the 5th and 6th March and looking to launch our new swimming pool timetable on Monday 7th March.

View our new timetable

Keep an eye out right here and across our social media channels for updates on the official reopening event on the 25th and 26th March and we really hope you’ll be ‘swim-pressed’ when our recommissioned pool returns! We’ll also be showcasing our new 3G pitch and squash court refurbishment following a huge £1.25 million investment in Rugeley Leisure Centre.

Fantastic 3G pitch

In partnership with the council and the Football Foundation, in October we unveiled a full size, state-of-the-art 3G all-weather pitch with low energy LED floodlights and extended parking facilities with electric vehicle charging points at Rugeley Leisure Centre.

This fantastic footballing venue will be available for 11, 7, 9 and 5-a-side teams and will foster and encourage an inclusive spirit from a wide range of abilities and community groups which are often underrepresented in the sport.
