Ribby Hall Village's revamped pool

Ribby Hall’s new pool complex has been nominated for four awards in a national competition.

The new swimming pool and spa provided by Leyland-based World Leisure UK for the Wrea Green attraction, has been shortlisted in the categories at the UK Pool and Spa Awards 2017.

They are open to the entire water leisure industry and aim to celebrate outstanding swimming pools, swim spas, hot tubs design, management and refurbishment, and the outstanding people in the industry.

Opened in April, it features new slides including a 48m interactive play slide. Visitors climb a tower to the top of the slide, which then takes them out of the building and back inside again.

As they come down, they can play an interactive touchpad game on the inside of the slide, with scores recorded. World Leisure also refurbished the splash pool and added an interactive aqua deck play structure.

Mark Leech, senior manager of Ribby Hall Village, said: “It’s fantastic news to see our pool nominated for a total of four awards.” The public can vote via www.ukpoolandspaawards.co.uk/get-voting
