Update on Balaam Leisure Centre closure

11 March 2019 in Sport and leisure
It is with regret that we can today confirm that Balaam Leisure will not be reopening to the public during April 2019. ​
​The site will remain closed until all of the necessary survey and assessment works are completed. There is thought to be a very serious structural problem with the fabric of the building, which makes it unsafe for building users and staff.

The survey and assessment work is complex and it will take time to complete a thorough investigation and evaluation.

Once the investigation is complete we will be in the best possible position to give proper consideration to all future options, which will allow the us to make properly informed decisions about the best way forward. 

This matter is being given the highest priority by both activeNewham and the London Borough of Newham but unfortunately it is likely the centre is facing a period of prolonged closure.

Balaam Leisure Centre customers are being contacted (from Monday March 11) to discuss options to transfer their memberships, custom and usage to other activeNewham facilities .
