The new £36m centre on the Spring Grove car park at Springwood opens in May 2015. It was funded by a combination of cash from the sale of the previous site, funding from KAL and other council funds that would otherwise have to be spent on repairs to the current sports centre and other buildings running into millions of pounds.

The new leisure centre replaces Huddersfield Sports Centre in Southgate and will be owned by the council and managed by Kirklees Active Leisure (KAL).
