New and improved leisure centre benefits college students

One of the biggest leisure developments in the South opens this month and will benefit Eastleigh College students, who will have the opportunity to participate in more varied activities.

Places Leisure Eastleigh is a brand-new sport and leisure centre, which opens on Tuesday 28th November and boasts new facilities which will be used by college students studying Sport and Fitness, as well as the wider community. The new facilities the students will benefit from includes, 15 badminton court sized sports hall, multi-station gym, full sized full-weather pitch, five-aside pitches as well as a sprung-floor studio.

Daniel Collinson, Lecturer in Sport and Fitness comments, “We will have access to the extensive facilities now installed at the new centre, which opens a wealth of opportunities for our students to get involved with.  The state-of-the-art equipment will be incorporated into the courses and also the variety of enrichment activities our students can take part in."

Students have already benefitted from the Sport and Fitness facilities which opened on the Eastleigh College campus last year, which included a new gym and fitness studio. The latter of which is run by Level 2 apprentices, giving them the opportunity to manage a varied commercial facility.

Greg Kenley, who studies Level 3 Sport is looking forward to using the new facilities and comments, “Not only is it my local leisure centre but it’ll help me on my course because it will allow me to participate, and improve in more varied sports.”
