Kings Hall sports hall, dry changing and programmable gym to close for eight weeks for repairs
Three areas of Kings Hall Leisure Centre are to close for approximately eight weeks from tomorrow (Friday 29 April) after a survey identified immediate repairs that need to take place to provide additional support to timber roof frames.
The leisure centre’s sports hall, programmable gym and dry-side changing rooms will close for approximately eight weeks, while contractors are appointed to carry out the essential work. The centre’s swimming pool, main gym and studio will remain open.
Leisure centre users will be able to use the other facilities at Kings Hall and facilities at other Hackney leisure centres for the duration of the work.
The repairs were identified as part of one of the Council's regular surveys carried out due to the building’s age.
The last thing we want to do is close parts of one of our leisure centres, but unfortunately one of our regular surveys has identified urgent repairs that need to take place to provide additional support to timber roof frames at Kings Hall.
We will be contacting leisure centre users directly that are affected, who will all be able to use facilities at other Hackney leisure centres until repairs are complete. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this causes to the centre’s users.
Kings Hall is our oldest leisure centre and unfortunately repairs like this are becoming more common. It’s why funding was approved last year to begin the process of developing plans to refurbish the leisure centre.
