The extensive refurbishment of two Kettering gyms has marked the start of a new partnership between North Northamptonshire Council and Freedom Leisure.

Both Kettering Swimming Pool and Desborough Leisure Centre customers will have seen an immediate impact with a complete revamp of the gyms at both the popular centres.

From the beginning of October 2022, Freedom Leisure began managing Kettering Swimming Pool, Desborough Leisure Centre, Kettering Pitch and Track and Corn Market Hall, working in partnership with North Northamptonshire Council.

The £300,000 investment, delivered on time and on budget, is the beginning of a commitment to improve both the health and wellbeing of the residents of Kettering and the facilities themselves. 

We’re proud of the leisure facilities we have in North Northants and working with Freedom Leisure means that we can continue to develop our offer – making a positive change to people’s lives. 

Already we’ve seen extensive gym refurbishments at two of our leisure centres – making facilities much more attractive.
