Concern for Graves Tennis and Leisure Centre

Wednesday, June 4, 2014

Following public concern for the future of Graves Tennis and Leisure Centre, (GTLC), Meg Munn MP organised a meeting with Councillor Isobel Bowler, Cabinet member for Culture, Sport and Leisure, and Paul Billington, Director of Culture and Environment, at Sheffield City Council. They confirmed that the centre is safe and will receive a 14 million redevelopment.

This is due to start in September with construction of a two storey extension on disused five-a-side football pitches. There will be an extra two tennis courts, a 25m pool and teaching pool, a regional trampolining and gymnastics facility and a gym with fitness studios.

Included will be health consultation and referral services, all part of a project to improve health and wellbeing in the wake of the Olympics. The redeveloped Centre hopes to be open in late 2015.

Sheffield City Council and Sheffield International Venues (SIV) have been jointly developing the Graves project for some time with the Council overseeing the construction phase. The future operation of the redeveloped facility at Graves Tennis and Leisure Centre will be subject to open tender. Although SIV may tender for the operation, Meg is conscious that this could lead to a change in operator, which brings uncertainty for current staff. SIV will operate Graves as normal during the construction phase.

Meg said:

“Although there has been uncertainty over the future of Graves throughout my time representing Sheffield Heeley, I am hopeful that this latest announcement from the Council will bring some much needed investment and stability. I will be following the redevelopment closely and look forward to visiting to see the fantastic new facilities in 2015.”
