It opens its doors to the public today where you can find a swimming pool and gym among other facilities.

It replaces the ageing Scarborough Sports Centre which opened for the final time last Thursday (1 June) as well as the existing Scarborough Swimming Pool which closed its doors to the public yesterday (Sunday 4 June.)

The gym equipment has now been installed as well as a 60 station fitness suite. A special opening ceremony takes place on Saturday 10 June, with the chance to meet Olympian Colin Jackson.

The former sprint and hurdling athlete will mark the occasion by cutting a ribbon alongside Leader of Scarborough Borough Council Derek Bastiman and Mayor of the Borough of Scarborough Martin Smith. 

Martin Russell, Everyone Active’s Area Fitness Manager, said:

“It’s very exciting to see the final touches being made to this fantastic centre. Everyone Active feels very privileged to manage this new centre and we look forward to encouraging more of the local community to be active through its wide range of facilities.

We hope to see lots of people joining us for the celebratory event on 10 June and we look forward to welcoming Colin Jackson.”

 

Jim Dillon, Scarborough Borough Council Chief Executive said:

“After decades of loyal use of the Filey Road and Ryndle Crescent sites, it’s time for our local community to make some fantastic new memories at Scarborough Sports Village.

The opening of the state of the art facility will mark the completion of the final phase of an ambitious regeneration programme, which has truly transformed that part of Scarborough into a first class hub for sports, leisure and education.”
