Wolverhampton City Council (WCC) and former Wolverhampton Wanderers and England goalkeeper Bert Williams have officially opened Bilston's new £18.6m leisure centre.

The Bert Williams Leisure Centre was unveiled by the 91-year-old together with city mayor Bert Turner and has been built to replace the town's existing Bilston Leisure Centre.

Facilities at the 5,600sq m (60,278sq ft) venue comprise a 25m, eight-lane swimming pool; a studio pool; a sauna; a dance studio; and a fitness suite.

A sports hall; four squash courts; a Shokk gym for young people aged between 11- and 15-years-old; and gym equipment for older people are also on offer at the new complex.

WCC in-house architects designed the Bert Williams Leisure Centre, which has been built on the site of a former ironworks by York-based contractor Shepherd Construction.

Elias Mattu, the council's cabinet member for leisure and communities, said: "We have worked hard to ensure there is something for everyone at the Bert Williams Leisure Centre.

"We have also been able to provide many more exercise stations than we had at the old leisure centre as well as a brand new sauna, sports hall and dance studio."
