Blackburn Sports and Leisure Centre


Blackburn Sports and 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 a 25-metre pool, a learner small pool with a moveable floor, two flumes and a children’s water play zone. There is also a spacious 80 station fitness suite, a dance/aerobics studio with a sprung floor with over 50 classes per week, separate Spinning studio sauna and steam rooms and two four-court sports halls.

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.

Disabled Facilities

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.  Lockers in the pool changing area and upstairs are accessible for wheelchair users.  A lift is also available between floors.  

Disabled parking spaces are available at the Coleege car park. Enter via the Fielden Street entrance and then turn imediately right.

Disabled plus 1 card is accepted at Blackbutn Sports and Leisure Centre.
