The Royal Opening of the Newly Completed Egham Orbit

Watson Batty Architects were delighted to attend the Royal Opening of the new Egham Orbit on the 5th March 2019 where HRH the Duke of Kent KG announced the £20m flagship facility Egham Orbit as officially open.

Replacing the 45-year-old ageing Egham Sports Centre, the new Egham Orbit, owned by Runnymede Borough Council, offers a wide range of facilities designed and built with inclusivity in mind, including the first public swimming pool within the borough of Runnymede. Managed by the centre operator Achieve Lifestyle, a charitable trust, the facility offers the local community a range of health, fitness, social and wellbeing spaces.

Achieving a BREEAM accredited “Very Good”, the new centre has been designed to be “future proofed” and not dated, lending itself to be named Egham Orbit.

The presence of a royal visitor highlights the importance of the new centre for the community and marks the huge milestone of the delivery of a well needed and well-deserved community venue.
