Scarborough Celebrates Sports Village


The doors have opened on Scarborough’s new £15 million Sports Village, which includes a 25m eight lane Olympic legacy swimming pool.


More than 3,000 people turned out for the open day in June, which was attended by former Olympian and Everyone Active Sporting Champions Ambassador, Colin Jackson. The sports village was designed by FaulknerBrowns, with Wilmott Dixon as the main contractors.


Everyone Active were awarded the contract with Scarborough Borough Council back in October 2015 as part of a ten-year partnership. The partnership also includes the management of Whitby Leisure Centre and Pindar Leisure Centre on behalf of the council.


Martin Russell, Everyone Active’s Area Contract Fitness Manager,


said: “We were delighted to see so many people turn out to enjoy the day. It was a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase all of the impressive facilities on offer at the new Scarborough Sports Village.

“We are extremely proud to manage this new centre and we look forward to encouraging more of the local community to improve their health and wellbeing through the extensive facilities now on offer all under one roof.”


New Waterpark Is Heaven Sent


An 800-year-old church in Coventry will soon be accompanied by a brand new waterpark, as plans to fi t six water slides intricately next to the 13th century spire have been revealed. FaulknerBrowns Architects fulfi lled the requirements of the historic £36.7 million undertaking at the Coventry City Centre Leisure Park, while Polin Waterparks have been chosen as the waterslide supplier. Other key contributors to the project include the main supplier and construction fi rm the Buckingham Group Contracting and consultant Neuman Aqua. Set to open in late 2018 or early 2019, the project has required many special considerations. Bilge Pakis, Design Manager at Polin Waterparks comments: “It is a game-changer in its distinctive design, required to fi t the facility into a very tight footprint on a site where Franciscan monks originally constructed a cruciform-shaped church in the early 1200s.”


The new facility will also provide a 25m swimming pool, a feature which will alter the layout of the waterpark. Polin Waterparks Senior Architect Zeynep Canbaz said: ‘’The


fl oorplan ultimately put the waterslides on the third fl oor, an especially unusual proposal.

“That meant Polin needed to specially adapt its rides to fi t within


the specifi c limitations of the building’s mostly round layout and its constricting ceiling height. It wasn’t an easy design. “But it was incredibly fun to work on. It was challenging yet exciting to see the puzzle pieces of the slides match the required size needs and, fi nally, fi t perfectly within the restrictions of the facility.”
