Hough End Renovations Complete

A new multi-million pound extension at GLL's Hough End Leisure Centre in Manchester has just opened thanks to significant investment from Manchester City Council and partners.

New facilities include the following -

  • An extended gym - now 50% bigger and with a programmable space for targeted groups
  • Over 100 new stations of the latest Technogym fitness equipment
  • An extended fitness class programme with 20 new classes scheduled
  • Dedicated changing rooms for our outdoor pitch customers
  • Ground floor cafe
  • A new multi-functional community room which can be used for fitness classes, recreational activities, functions, meetings and community sessions
  • A bar and fantastic outdoor balcony area with views over the pitches
  • New access turnstiles which allow members to beat the queues at reception and gain quicker, easier access to activities. 

Crucially, this investment has also provided Manchester's first Football Hub venue in partnership with The Football Foundation and Sport England. In September, 15 improved grass pitches opened to the public, providing a real community hub for grassroots football and sports activities with a 7-days-a-week, all-year-round programme. There are also two brand new fenced and floodlit artificial grass pitches.
