Sherborne Sports Centre is undergoing an exciting refurbishment to provide a state-of-the-art health, fitness and wellbeing facility for the benefit of Sherborne School, Sherborne Prep and the wider Sherborne community.
The new development will result in an increased number of activities and services allowing our users to explore different opportunities to maintain and improve fitness, sustain and build relationships with like-minded people, and find enjoyment and comfort in exceptional surroundings.
The first phase of the project saw the building of a contemporary and cutting edge five-court sports hall, making it one of a kind and unique to Sherborne. The introduction of the hall in September has enabled futsal, badminton, cricket, hockey, and a variety of other sports to take place. The construction of our bespoke climbing and bouldering walls have also been completed, with our climbing wall standing at a magnificent 9 metres tall and offering a range of routes for climbers to explore and conquer. Our bouldering room is for free-climbing (without ropes or harnesses) where participants must solve ‘problems’ using their strength, balance and brain. Both are being enjoyed by pupils at Sherborne School and will be open to the public in 2023.
The second phase has seen a modernisation of the heated 25 metre indoor swimming pool. The renovation has seen the installation of an improved ventilation system, striking new anti-slip tiles and innovative indoor upgrades which includes energy-efficient poolside lighting.
The final phasing of the project will be completed in the Summer of 2023. The centre will benefit from four new leading squash courts, two spectacular fitness studios, a state-of-the-art gym containing new equipment, a spacious wet-side changing room, viewing gallery for visitors to watch poolside and a modern, bright, and relaxing reception area, equipped with the most comfortable sofas and chairs to enjoy a catch-up with friends or take a moment after an exhilarating fitness class.
