Derby City Council’s new 50m swimming pool and water park at Moorways will open on 21 May 2022.

Moorways Sports Village will be managed by our leisure operating partner, Everyone Active.

Highlights include a ten-lane, 50-metre swimming pool with moveable booms and floors to create three 25-metre pools, allowing flexible use for both leisure swimmers and the next generation of Olympians.

In the Water Park there are flumes, slides, a water play area for younger children and a gently sloping leisure pool with a wave-generating ‘WoW’ ball.  

The existing Moorways Stadium will also be part of Moorways Sports Village and will be managed by Everyone Active from Monday 16 May.
