Situated in the south west of the city, the Xcel Leisure Centre opened in June 2008 to replace the Midland Sports Centre. The Xcel Leisure Centre serves as the head office for Coventry Sports Foundation.


Hailed as the flagship project for the Canley Regeneration Scheme, the Xcel Leisure Centre has been designed with the needs of the local community in mind. The modern and vibrant centre works in close partnership with the neighbouring Westwood School and offers state-of-the-art facilities to local residents and employees of the near-by Westwood Business Park.


The Xcel Leisure Centre boasts some of the most modern access adaptations for people with a range of disabilities including innovations such as a moveable floor and independent access lift into the swimming pool for participants with mobility difficulties.
