Centre Refurbishment

Last updated 6th April 2021

Upon the completion of the refurbishment works at Avondale, the contractors appointed by Stockport Council will start the renovation works at Romiley which is set to transform the current swimming pool changing rooms, entrance, and reception area.

As a result, there will be disruption to the facility whilst the work is undertaken including reduced gym opening times, temporary pool changing rooms, new access to the facility entrance and extremely limited car parking availability. In addition, entry and exit from the car park will be single file due to the location of the temporary changing rooms.

With swimming lessons re-starting at Romiley on Monday 12th April and indoor exercise classes coming into play on Monday 17th of May, we’re endeavouring to accommodate all our customers as best we can. Due to capacity levels, we have had to amend the fitness suite opening times. Therefore, the fitness suite will be open from 6:30am – 3pm Monday to Friday whilst the work is ongoing.

As a gym user, we’d like to remind you that your membership does permit access to nearby Life Leisure gyms such as Stockport Sports Village and Brinnington Park Leisure Complex along with other facilities across Stockport in line with your membership package.

Alternatively, if you find that you only want to use the gym and not group exercise or swimming, we will be happy to transfer your membership to a gym only membership at Stockport Sports Village for just £22.50pm. If this sounds like something you would like to take up, please email our memberships team. If you would like to freeze your membership for free during this time, please complete the online form here.

Further details for customers will be released in the upcoming days on this page. We would like to thank-you for your patience during this period and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
