Preparation is underway for the closure of the current Spenborough Pool, which will be replaced by the fantastic new Spen Valley Leisure Centre.
(Please note: the adjacent fitness suite and studios will remain open throughout the new build period.)
It’s expected that this will lead to an increased use of the other leisure facilities in the North Kirklees area, while the new leisure centre is built. KAL and Kirklees Council are therefore taking the opportunity to complete some required maintenance and improvement work at both Batley Baths & Recreation Centre and Dewsbury Sports Centre over the coming weeks, prior to the Spenborough closure.
Works will be taking place at Batley Baths from the 17th July – 6th August. Last sessions will take place on the 16th July, with sessions resuming on the 7th August. With works being carried out in the pool hall for 3 weeks there will, unfortunately, be no changing facilities on poolside during this period. Unisex changing facilities will be made available in the health suite, apart from during Sitara sessions. You can see the timetable here.
(Please note that the swimming pool at Dewsbury Sports Centre will be closed from the 12th August 2019, re-opening at the end of the month.)
Alternative KAL swimming facilities are available at Spenborough Pool (until the end of August 2019) or at Batley Sports & Tennis Centre.
KAL understand this may cause some disruption to our customer’s routine and apologise for any inconvenience caused, but we’re sure that when everything is up and running as normal, KAL customers will benefit from the improvements we have made.
