Closed for refurbishment

Splashes Sports Centre is currently closed for up to £5million investment.

Full Council approved redevelopment plans on 16 July 2020. This is to create a centre which offers fun family-friendly activities that complement sessions held at Medway’s other sports centres.

The plans include:

  • modern changing facilities suitable for families including family change, baby change and showers
  • creating spaces for family friendly activities such as party rooms
  • future-proofing the centre by using solar power and rainfall collections and updating and renewing the flume
  • providing a café

The centre is currently closed in line with government guidelines due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and will not reopen until the redevelopment is complete.

A Splashes Development Project Board and an Officer Working Group is currently being created to take the proposals forward.

Splashes is expected to be reopen in early 2022.

The investment in Splashes Sports Centre and in play areas supports our aspiration to become a child friendly city, putting Medway’s young people at the centre of everything we do.
