Going for gold

by 3arn0wl

Poppleton opened its new leisure centre and pool complex earlier today.

With stunning architecture to complement the historic buildings in the town, the complex hosts a wealth of facilities for the people of Poppleton and the surrounding area, from swimming pools to squash courts,  volleyball to velodrome, there’s something to appeal to all sporting tastes.

The facility replaces a rather tired outdoor lido, clay tennis courts which were riddled with weeds and a couple of condemned prefabs used mainly by the youth club for table tennis.

The ribbon was cut by local celebrity and keen squash player, Felicity Flowers. Ms. Flowers said “This is a fantastic resource for the community, and I’m sure it’s going to be well used.”

Its design is already attracting much attention, and looks certain to be in-line for some architectural awards.
