In partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Manchester we are currently working on a £2.6 million refurbishment at Better, Sugden Sports Centre. Below is an update on the progress of the refurbishment works to date and disruptions that you need to be aware of:
PHASES ONE AND TWO: COMPLETE
All works in the activity rooms, upper gym, lower cardio gym and the changing rooms and toilets outside sports halls A and B are now finished.
FINAL PHASE: BEGINNING MONDAY 11TH JUNE 2018
The final works to refurbish the free weights area in the lower gym, the group cycling studio, reception area, meeting rooms and changing rooms outside sports halls C and D will begin on Monday 11th June 2018. These are estimated to be completed by Friday 31st August 2018.
MONDAY 11TH JUNE: ONE DAY GYM CLOSURE
To allow the work in the free weights area to take place, we will be temporarily moving the equipment to alternative locations in the building:
- The cardio equipment will move to sports hall B
- The free weights equipment will move to the existing cardio area in the gym
To reduce disruption for customers as much as possible we are closing the gym on Monday 11th June. All other activities will run as normal at Better, Sugden Sports Centre on Monday 11th June and the gym equipment will be available again from Tuesday 12th June.
Members will also be able to access the gym at Better, Manchester Aquatics Centre on Monday 11th June at no extra cost.
The remaining gym works are expected to be completed by early August with new equipment installed by mid August.

From Monday 11th June until Friday 31st August 2018, the location of the reception area will be temporarily relocated to the gym. Access to the centre will be via the gym doors on Grosvenor Street. You will be able to access sports halls A and B, squash courts, outdoor football and changing rooms through the temporary reception area.
