Major refurbishment of the changing facilities at Rhondda Sports Centre are underway this week as part of the Council’s continued investment in leisure facilities across the County Borough. 

Rhondda Sports Centre will remain open to the public throughout the duration of the works. 

Improvement works for Rhondda Sports Centre form part of a wider £750,000 investment which will also deliver upgrades to the changing room facilities at Bronwydd Pool in Porth, Sobell Leisure Centre in Aberdare and Abercynon Sports Centre. 

This is in addition to the £3m that has already been invested in leisure centre improvements across Rhondda Cynon Taf in recent years as part of the wider on-going £200m #RCTinvest programme. 

The changing room improvements at Rhondda Sports Centre will provide users with some of the most up-to-date facilities available, enhancing their visits. The facilities will include: 

  • NEW family changing area
  • NEW changing cubicles
  • NEW lockers
  • NEW showers
  • NEW and Improved access to poolside
  • NEW disabled changing facilities 

Customers will be directed to use the alternative dry changing rooms for the duration of the work, which is anticipated to be completed in June 2018. 

The Council’s Leisure for Life membership continues to grow as more and more people are heading to Council-run leisure facilities. In response to demand, the Council continues to recognise leisure as a priority area for investment. 

Cllr Ann Crimmings, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Leisure, said: “More people than ever before are heading to our leisure centres each month, all taking steps towards a healthier and more active lifestyle. 

“Having invested greatly in our leisure facilities in recent years, our residents are providing us with positive feedback, with more and more people becoming Leisure for Life members. 

“The additional £750,000 investment for changing facilities - which is on top of the £3M already invested in leisure facilities - allows us to continue to make improvements to our leisure facilities for the benefit of visitors. 

“The Council will be working closely with contractors throughout the work at Rhondda Sports Centre to ensure completion at the earliest opportunity. 

“The Council would like to thank residents and centre users in advance for their co-operation as we continue to make improvements to support healthy lifestyles.”
