Arun residents will be able to enjoy the new £16m state-of-the-art Littlehampton Wave leisure centre when it officially opens for business on Friday, March 29 2019.
The new leisure centre has an eight-lane, 25 metre pool, a multi-purpose pool with moveable floor, a comprehensive 85 station gym boasting the latest technology, a large functional space that can divide into two dance studios, a sports hall equipped for a host of activities and a 25 station indoor cycling studio.
New classes will include POUND; a cardio based session inspired by the energising fun of playing the drums, an extended programme of Les Mills Classes, OMNIA Group Training in the gym and Myride Cinematic Immersive Experience classes in the indoor cycling studio with both live and virtual instructors.
As a result of the consultation for the Littlehampton Wave, the public confirmed they would like a café, spectator seating in the pool area, a multi-purpose room/meeting room and a sauna in the new centre, all of which have been delivered.
In addition to the extensive list of new facilities, the Littlehampton Wave also features a Changing Places room which provides toilet and changing facilities so those who require more space and specialist equipment can change safely and in comfort. This includes a height adjustable changing bench and hoist.
The Littlehampton Wave also has a range of accessible facilities throughout the building.
The project was delivered by construction company Willmott Dixon on behalf of Arun District Council and was completed on budget.
