A sports centre in Sudbury will be closed to the public indefinitely after a contract with Abbeycroft Leisure was not renewed.
The sports centre at Ormiston Sudbury Academy will be closed to the community from Tuesday, August 31.
The academy has said they are reflecting on how best to support the PE/sport/fitness curriculum within the school, whilst potentially offering community use to their sports facilities again in the future.
Warren Smyth, chief executive at Abbeycroft Leisure, said: “As a not-for-profit social enterprise, our ambition is to work within our local community to offer excellent services and facilities and we’ve truly enjoyed building a strong relationship with the academy during this time.
"So naturally, we are extremely disappointed with this decision, however, we do fully appreciate that the Academy wants to reflect on how they best serve the community going forward."
