Double Olympic champion Rebecca Adlington has officially opened the £11.9m Wyre Forest Leisure Centre in Kidderminster.

Designed by Roberts Limbrick Architects and built by Pellikaan Construction, the centre includes a six-lane 25m pool, a learner pool with moveable floor, sauna, steamroom and a 100-station health and fitness club with exercise and dance studios.

Operated by Places for People Leisure, additional facilities include a six-court sports hall, a climbing wall, six-a-side football pitches, a café and children’s play area.

Speaking at the opening, Rebecca Adlington said: “The facilities are just amazing and the swimming pool and learner pool are brilliant.

“I’ve been to many leisure centres across the country and Wyre Forest is without doubt one of the best.

"I first got into swimming at the age of three as my parents wanted me to learn a life skill and I fell in love with it straight away.

“My vision is that every child in Britain will be able to swim 25 metres by the time they leave primary school and facilities like these at Wyre Forest Leisure Centre go a long way in helping to make this a reality.”

Places for People Leisure will operate the centre on behalf of Wyre Forest District Council for the next 25 years. The social enterprise currently partners with 35 local authorities and manages 112 leisure centres across England.
