I wanted to use my website to highlight Swadlincote's new Apex Climbing Centre facility at Green Bank Leisure Centre.
These fantastic new facilities opened in early July ready for the school summer holidays and have already had more than 1,500 people. Climbing, both indoor and outdoor, is a fast growing sport in the UK, no wonder as it’s a great fun way to keep fit, so it’s brilliant we in South Derbyshire are moving with the times and providing the facilities people want.
South Derbyshire District Council (SDDC) and the Green Bank Leisure centre should be so proud of their work to get this up and running. When I visited with SDDC Chairman Councillor Patrick Murray on the 9th September for the official opening of Apex we both saw how much people are already enjoying scaling the various walls catering for beginners to experts of all ages.
I would encourage everyone to go along and have a go, it really is another feather in South Derbyshire’s already fit to burst cap of great things to do.
