Sports centre to reopen after flooding

A SPORTS centre is set to reopen today after closing due to flooding.

Northgate Sports Centre in Sidegate Lane West shut yesterday morning after staff discovered a burst water main in a storeroom had caused flooding overnight.

The recreational centre is set to reopen from 12pm today.

Ipswich Borough Council’s Operations Manager for Sport, Tim Snook, said staff were taking bookings this morning for use this afternoon.

Flooding affected parts of the centre, including the practice hall, gymnasium, reception, the foyer and office.
