Wimbledon’s Centre Court hires mobility supplier to help it climb accessibility seedings

Changing Places Opemed

OpeMed has taken centre stage of one of the most high-profile sporting venues ahead of one of the world’s favourite lawn tennis tournaments.

The hoist specialist has provided a Changing Places facility at Centre Court Wimbledon ahead of the world-class gland slam taking place next month.

OpeMed’s collaborated with the All England Lawn Tennis Club to design, install and maintain Wimbledon’s first Changing Places toilet at Centre Court Wimbledon.

The Changing Places, situated amongst the refurbished Court 18 toilets, has been on the cards since late last year when OpeMed met with the planning consultant to conceptualise the layout and design.

The height-adjustable OT200 ceiling hoist and washbasin, as well as the Geberit AquaClean Wash/Dry Toilet, were installed in a bid to meet all the needs a disabled visitor might.

Nick Kent, managing director of OpeMed, said: “As well as leisure facilities, tourism attractions and transport hubs we are pleased to be helping stadiums in the UK and indeed worldwide provide these vital facilities.

“It’s fantastic to be able to unveil this stadium Changing Places facility just in time for Wimbledon 2018, when it will be able to improve the experience for so many guests as they can purely focus on enjoying the world-class competition.”
