- Four court sports hall
- Squash courts
- Multi-function room
- Fitness gym with 120 stations

- Clip ‘n’ climb wall
- Two outdoor 3G artificial pitches for five-a-side football

The swimming pool will be fully accessible with pool pods for wheelchair users. Construction will start on the 2.1ha site in Whitfield later this month with a planned opening early in 2019.
