New Fitness Equipment

State of the art fitness equipment from Life Fitness is coming to all of our Leisure Centres.

Not only is the equipment brand new there are also many new features which we hope our members will be able to take full advantage of.

Including the ability to connect to a smart device and record your work out, share your activities and compete with friends, receive support from instructors and playback previous workouts that you completed away from the gym.


The new learner pool is 20 metres by 8.5 metres with a variable depth from 0.6 metres to 0.9 metres, aimed to enhance the quality of swimming lessons and providing a spacious environment for families to enjoy.

In addition the teaching pool benefits from an exciting fun water experience with jets and water fountains. The pool environment and changing facilities are accessible to spacious village changing complimented by group changing for local schools and private hire bookings. 

Sports Hall

The new sports hall surface has a sprung floor to benefit such activities as badminton, football, dance, fitness and Karate. The sports hall is open from morning until night 7 days a week. The sports hall hosts 4 badminton courts which also cater for gymnastics, trampolining, futsal, 5 a side and many more activities. There will be day time access for user groups such as over 50’s, pre-school and other target groups.

Squash courts and crèche

The new centre has two glass backed squash courts with spectator viewing for matches. The courts also have a movable wall to cater for other sports. 

This area will provide crèche facilities during the day to look after the little ones while members enjoy a workout! The new leisure centre also hosts two spacious fully air conditioned fitness studios which can also be turned into one large studio.
