New £11m business hub for Walsall College

Walsall College is starting the academic year by opening a new £11m business and sports hub.

It includes a start-up business centre, and conference and event facilities for learners and the community.

A sports hall, dance and fitness studios, gym, spa, sports training and injury clinic, plus a 40-seat bistro are also part of the facility.

The gymnasium and business centre are currently open for students and the official opening, which is being marked with a ‘fit and fun day’ for the public, is due to be held on September 26.

Principal Jatinder Sharma said: “Our vision has always been to create a space which creates a thriving economy for all by supporting budding entrepreneurs and giving the wider community greater opportunities to improve their health and fitness.”
