The completion of a multi million pound new leisure centre ‘kitted-out’ with no less than five high performance Gerflor flooring products, has boosted the leisure offering available to a rural community in the north of the Isle of Axholme, North Lincolnshire. The facility, where transport is limited and the nearest leisure centre had previously been over five miles away has provided local residents a new lease of life.
Previously the only leisure provision for residents was an old school hall without a swimming pool, North Lincolnshire Council wanted to help increase the local numbers participating in sport and active recreation by putting in place the right infrastructure. Built on the land of the local secondary school, the resulting new Axholme North Leisure Centre is a part refurbishment of an old hall combined with a new build facility that has created a purpose-built, wellequipped leisure complex.
Located on Wharf Road, Crowle, the indoor facilities provided by Axholme North Leisure Centre include a four lane, 25 metre swimming pool, 16 station gym and a fitness studio, whilst outside there is a 3G 9v9 football pitch along with netball and tennis courts.
