Leisure centre re-opens its doors after £2m refurbishment

A fit new Comber Leisure Centre has officially re-opened its doors to the public after a £2m refurbishment programme by Ards Borough Council.

The centre has undergone extensive renovation to create contemporary, modern leisure facilities and now boasts a larger gym which has double the amount of fitness equipment previously available, as well as a separate heavy weights room.

The fitness area has adjacent changing facilities and a new steam room, sauna and ‘experience shower’ have also been added.

A brand new Dino’s Den – the children’s soft play area – has been sited at the front of the building, where two function rooms and a treatment room are also available.

The main sports hall has been made-over, a dedicated exercise studio has been added, while outside, the main synthetic sports pitch has also been re-surfaced.

Mayor of Ards, Councillor David Smyth, who officially re-opened the centre on Tuesday, said:

“While the centre has been closed since April to allow the refurbishment to take place, I’m certainly convinced that it was worth the wait and I hope that the people of Comber and the surrounding area, will agree. They now have access to modern, quality leisure facilities” he said.

“Certainly, local people seem to have been enthused by what’s been happening on this site over the last months and, as the building neared completion, residents were contacting us by the dozens to make enquiries.

“That reaction, taken together with the very positive feedback we received during last week’s preview night, augers well for the future use of the centre.”

Anyone who would like further information about the new facilities at Comber Leisure Centre, can contact centre staff on 028 9187 4350.
