Information about Catmose Sports Centre

Catmose Sports Centre will cease to operate as a public leisure facility following the conclusion of Rutland County Council’s contract with Stevenage Leisure Limited (SLL), which comes to an end on Friday 31st May 2024.

As things stand, all public access to the facility will end after this date. The owner of the sports centre building, Catmose College, has issued a statement regarding the possibility of ongoing community access for groups and sports clubs, beyond 31st May 2024. This statement can be read on the College’s website.

Any clubs or groups needing information about alternative facilities in the County should contact: activerutland@rutland.gov.uk 

Background

A report on the Catmose Sports Centre leisure contract was presented to Full Council on 25 March 2024, requiring a decision to either award or not award a new contract. Councillors did not reach a final decision on the leisure contract in March but did ask Cabinet to consider options for leisure financing, with no nil cost option available.

Acting on the direction of Council, Cabinet on 16 April 2024 revisited the budget that was approved in February and identified options that – if approved by Councillors – would have taken money earmarked for increased flood management capacity and a Climate Change Officer and reallocated this funding to the management of Catmose Sports Centre instead. 

Cabinet's recommendation on leisure financing was presented to Councillors at a Special Council meeting on 18 April 2024. No alternative proposals to fund the management of Catmose Sports Centre from other areas of the Council’s budget were brought forwards by Councillors.
