West Limerick Sports Complex ('WLSC', formerly trading as Killeline Leisure Centre) is a not-for-profit Social Enterprise providing Leisure and Fitness Facilities, based in Newcastle West, Co. Limerick.

We have an ambitious vision to become a leading Sports Complex for the town and wider West Limerick region. 

The existing centre has operated successfully for over 25 years and facilities include an 18m heated Swimming Pool with Sauna and Steamroom and a fully equipped Gym with Group Exercise Studio. However, the centre and dedicated team finds itself limited by capacity constraints and there is huge potential to expand.

Over the past 2 years, the team and board have listened to feedback and have been working hard on a vision for 2025. We have a fantastic opportunity to expand the existing centre by extending the facilities on to the adjoining 2 acre site and achieve the status of a regional sports complex. 

We are urging the community to get behind us. If you would like to see this become a reality please sign the petition and share! 

Our mission is to to increase participation among all user groups, focusing particularly on disability and disadvantaged groups as well as providing the best service and facilities to our community.

We have already made a number of improvements since making the transition to a public, social enterprise in 2017. In 2020 we did a full refurbishment of the gym, with support of €121,000 from the Sports Capital Programme. 2021 saw the launch of a new brand and image, with the trading name officially moving to West Limerick Sports Complex, along with a new website (https://wlsc.ie/) and online booking system.

We are fully committed to providing a top-class facility for the region. Over the next 1-2 years we will continue to improve the existing centre. A key goal for 2022 is to secure funding to upgrade the changing rooms. With support we hope to have proper, village style changing rooms in the near future.

Our longer term vision for 2025 is what you can see in our vision video. Our gym refurb project is proof that the funding is there and that we are able to get it. To tap into these funds we need the community to rally behind us!

Our facility adds to the attractiveness of the area for residents, visitors as well as people looking to invest in the area, bringing much needed economic benefits to the West Limerick region. The expansion would ideally complement the Athletics Hub currently under build just across the road. 

We have a voluntary board, made up of people from all aspects of the community that oversees policy and strategic management. Any profit we generate is reinvested back into the company to maximise Impact and Objectives.

The more participation and support generated, the more inclusive accessible activities / services / employment and discounts that can be offered back to the whole community.

Get behind the WLSC vision today, sign the petition, like and share!
