A new urban sports centre based in south Leeds will finally open to the public on Saturday.

The Level Up Academy, in Lockwood Court, Beeston, is an 8,000sqft sports centre featuring a full-size sprung floor, a 4,000sqft modular parkour park, trampolines, a tumble track and foam pit.

It will be the only purpose-built hub for sports like French free running craze parkour, cheerleading and breakdancing in Leeds.

The not-for-profit community interest company behind the centre aims to make sessions affordable and will work with a series of partners to offer coaching and courses.
