How Lordswood Leisure Centre Began
Lordswood Leisure Centre first opened its doors in 1982 to the general public. It was first opened as an extension to Lordswood Sports and Social club being run as a sports hall with changing rooms.
In the early 90s the centre expanded by have an extension built adding a new reception area, further halls & extra rooms.
How we’ve changed
Lordswood Leisure Centre was formed as a charitable trust in October 2004, and is now managed and run by members of the local community on behalf of Medway Council.
The Centre operates on a non profit basis with any profits made being invested back into the centre for improvement works. Since 2004 the centre has undergone major refurbishments in various areas to enhance the site, such as the new Martin Grove Suite and our Acorns Health & Fitness Suite, which were previously a viewing gallery and squash courts.
How we’ve grown
Further years have resulted in further redevelopments such as the Main Sports hall which was completely transformed in 2008, the whole room was stripped and re-worked; the walls had new bricks, the paint and plaster was refreshed and a brand new floor was installed.
How we’ve improved
The end of 2014/start of 2015 saw the redevelopment of the entire Acorns Health & Fitness Suite. The gym are was opened up to give a large open plan area, new machines were added and a complete revamp of all of the areas was completed.
