Leisure Centres in Dorset

Dorset has a number of leisure centres and fitness facilities to keep you in tip top condition or on top of your training routine while away from home.

Fantastic range of facilities

Many of our leisure centres provide a fantastic range of facilities from fully equipped fitness suites, state of the art swimming pools and wonderful sports halls to enjoy.

All of the great facilities can be enjoyed by young and old with a number of centres providing a range of great activities for kids to enjoy throughout the school holiday periods.

Swimming pools in Dorset

Many Dorset leisure centres boast first-class swimming pools offering a varied timetable of lane swimming, fun swims, inflatables and aqua fitness classes.

Some centres also have multiple pools with Jacuzzi and sauna options for a little extra relaxation time, perfect for unwinding on your next holiday.

Try something new

With so many great activities to try why not give a new sport a go, you might be a natural!

How about taking a class in Chasamba, PiYo, Kettlesize or Vibe Cycle? Have a go at the latest craze - you never know, you might get hooked.

Take a step outside of your comfort zone and push yourself further than you thought possible. If you don’t try you’ll never know!

Great for wet weather days

With most of the activities taking place inside, Dorset’s leisure centres are perfect for rainy days. And if you’re going to get wet outside, then you may as well get wet inside too! So dive into one of their swimming pools for a splashing good time. Some of the Centres offer inflatable fun during the school holidays.

And don’t forget all the other fun things to do. Have a go at badminton or indoor tennis, jump around on a trampoline or test your hand to eye co-ordination with a game of indoor bowls or darts. There’s more to leisure centres than the gym!

Take a break

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, grab something to eat or drink in the leisure centre sports bar or café. Their menus are filled with healthy and tasty choices and offer great value for money.

Join the celebrations

There are a number of sporting and activity based events happening throughout the year for you to take part in whatever your level of fitness. For those of an entry level of fitness why not set a challenge of completing a sponsored walk or hike. For the more advanced fitness fanatics how about trying a 10k run, charity cycle or a full triathlon!

Whichever event you take part in it’ll be sure to leave you with lasting memories of your time in Dorset and a few well-earned aches and pains!

So remember when you’re packing for your break in Dorset, don’t forget those trainers!
