Darwen Leisure Centre provides you with an incredible inclusive and welcoming health and fitness offering with affordable memberships to suit everyone, including student memberships.
Facilities on offer include an 8 lane 25-metre pool, and a learner small pool. There is also a spacious 80 station fitness suite, two dance/aerobics studios with a sprung floor with over 50 classes per week, sauna and steam rooms and a four-court sports hall.
Changing Room and Locker Information
The changing room is in a family/communal style – there are no separate male and female areas. This gives flexibility, as it allows parents with children of a different gender, easy changing. There are group changing rooms for schools, which can be sectioned off from the rest of the changing area.
There are large family changing cubicles and all other cubicles are much larger than normal so that each one can fit one adult and one child. There are several baby changing units. There are individual enclosed showers and general shower areas.
All lockers in the centre operate by using £1 coins which are returnable. Keys for the lockers are on a wrist band which you can take with you when you swim. Re-usable locker tokens can be purchased at reception for £1 each.
Access to both the small pool and the large pool can be made via small sloping steps or if required a pool hoist or pool pod is available to lower bathers into the water. These can be used either standing or in a wheelchair. The leisure centre has large disabled changing rooms with the use of a hoist in the Wet Change Village. A lift is also available between floors.
Disabled parking spaces are available at the entrance to the leisure centre.
Disabled plus 1 card is accepted at Darwen Leisure Centre.
