SWIMMERS will benefit from extra Government funding.
Batley Sports and Tennis Centre has been given £1.75m to upgrade its pool.
Kirklees Council leader Clr Mehboob Khan welcomed the investment. He said: “This funding is the Government’s contribution to the Batley Swimming Initiative, which will create a modern leisure facility designed to meet the needs of local communities and increase the number of people who enjoy the benefits of high-quality, accessible and attractive facilities.”
Kirklees has spent £10.5m in the last seven years modernising sports centres and pools.
