Since opening in June the Hough End leisure centre, South Manchester, has proved extremely popular. Demand has been so high that the centre is now planning to trial new opening hours, allowing more people to take advantage of the state-of-the-art facilities.
From the 31st of October until the 31st of January the centre will be open for an extra six hours every weekend, from 8am to 7pm on both Saturday and Sunday.
In the 3 months that Hough End leisure centre has been opened it has welcomed nearly 60,000 visitors and currently boasts 4,112 members, with swimming facilities proving the most popular. Hough End is home to a 25m six-lane swimming pool and a 17m-learner pool, and includes a fitness gym with 90 stations. It also features two squash courts, a dance studio and a steam room.
