Alderley Park unveils new sports complex as part of development plans
Alderley Park is set to bring a new gym and sports complex to its growing on-site community and local residents later this year.
Opening in September, the new sports complex will include a health and fitness suite, dance studio, sports hall, three tennis courts and a five-a-side all-weather football pitch.
There will also be new seven-a-side and 11-a-side football pitches and outdoor recreation areas.
Managed by Cheshire-based Everybody Sport and Recreation, the sports complex is part of a £160m investment from Park owners Bruntwood SciTech.
Chris Doherty, managing director, Alderley Park, said: “The facilities and amenities at Alderley Park are all designed to help support a healthy work-life balance.
“Everybody Sport and Recreation shares our vision for the park and we’re delighted that they will be operating the new gym and sports facilities.
“Members of the new gym and sports complex will also be able to use 15 other Everybody Sport and Recreation-run centres across Cheshire, including Macclesfield, Wilmslow and Knutsford.”
The new gym and sports complex is an integral part of Alderley Park, which will also include a gastropub and retail outlets.
Peter Hartwell, Everybody Sport and Recreation chief executive, said: “We’re thrilled to be running the new leisure facilities at Alderley Park and can’t wait to open our doors.
“We’ll be putting together a varied schedule of classes, ranging from indoor group cycling to yoga, which will be open to all the people working and living at the park as well as for the local community to enjoy.”
The gym comes off the back of the recent announcement that an additional £10m will be invested in a range of new laboratories at the park.
