The new £31m Hillingdon Sports and Leisure Complex has opened in Uxbridge, west London. The centre, which was unveiled by

Hillingdon Council to local residents at the end of February and which was offi cially opened by London mayor Boris Johnson on 23 March, offers the fi rst Olympic-sized swimming pool to open in London for 40 years. Facilities at the centre include a

400sq m (4,306sq ft) CV and static weights area, a 52sq m (560sq ft) group cycling studio and a 162sq m (1,744sq ft) dance studio, as well as a 105sq m (1,130sq ft) free weights area. Equipment has been supplied by Matrix. A multi-use sports hall, shallow

pools and a sauna and steamroom are also among the centre’s facilities, in addition to classrooms for training, a café and a crèche. The site’s 1930s open-air swimming pool, grandstands, cascades and entrance building have also undergone a full refurbishment as part of the development. Hillingdon Council has contributed

£26m towards the new complex, in addition to more than £2m from the London Development Agency and £1.5m from Sport England. The Heritage Lottery Fund also provided £1m towards the refurbishment of the Grade II-listed open-air pool.
