Worthing’s Splashpoint Leisure Centre has been voted winner by the World Architecture Festival 2013 in their sports category. The centre has beaten off strong competition from other nominees such as Perth Arena in Australia, the Palace of Water Sports in Russia and the Ice Hockey Arena in Slovakia. Both Worthing Borough Council and Wilkinson Eyre Architects were delighted to receive the news.
The external design of the building and the way it has been designed to complement its environment and location is what made it stand out from the competition. The shape of the building is designed to reduce the visual mass and mediates the change in scale from the terraced houses that line the coastal road to the expansiveness of the open sea. The sloping copper roof is intended to weather with the environment and compliment the natural surroundings.
The building has been raised so that from pool level, there is a powerful visual connection between the pool and the sea and praise was received from the judges in relation to the use of light in the main pool spaces.
All these factors ensured that Splashpoint’s nomination beat worldwide competition and is consequently receiving international acclaim.
Paul Yallop, Leader of Worthing Borough Council said: “We challenged Wilkinson Eyre to design a brave landmark building which provided both a first rate sports facility and a statement of our ambition for Worthing. This award shows that challenge was more than met. My thanks go to all of those who made this project happen and I know this will prove a catalyst for the type of exciting high quality development that we encourage in Worthing as our town grows from strength to strength. We are very much open for business and investment. Splashpoint serves as an iconic statement of our intent”
Chris Wilkinson, Director, Wilkinson Eyre Architects is delighted with the news: “We are thrilled to have received this award for Splashpoint. It’s always pleasing to work on a project that delivers so much benefit to the local community and a great privilege to design a building that occupies such a wonderful location.”
Worthing Borough Council and Worthing Leisure are delighted with the award and all the positive publicity received. Customers are flocking to Splashpoint, memberships are at an all time high and it is a success of which the whole town can be proud.

What would you do with an extra £974 a year? That’s how much a typical commuter saves when they car-share to the gym.
We’ve recently set up a new car-sharing scheme with Liftshare.com, especially for Worthing Leisure at all four sites (Worthing Leisure Centre, Splashpoint Leisure Centre, Davison Leisure centre and Field Place), designed to help you reduce your daily travel costs while helping to reduce CO2 emissions at the same time.
It is totally free to use and enables you to find others going your way, so you can share the journey. You can take turns driving, offer someone a lift (in exchange for a contribution to the fuel costs) or look for someone to give you a lift.
Once registered, you can access your account from work or home, making searching as convenient as possible. You can also choose whether to search for matches among Worthing Leisure members or from the whole Liftshare nationwide database.
And you don’t have to do it every day. It’s completely flexible; once you’ve found others going your way, you decide between yourselves how often it suits you to share.
Discover for yourself just how much money you can save by car-sharing. To sign up and find a car-share companion or two, just go to www.worthingleisure.liftshare.com
This is a brand new scheme so please do not be put off if there are no members going on the same journey as you for the time being - we want this service to work so please bear with us whilst we promote this exciting new scheme.
