February 2021: I’m sure it will come as no surprise to hear that, due to the Government announcement of Lockdown, we must remain closed to all user groups, except for the Treehouse Nursery.

This of course must be hugely disappointing to everyone but hopefully, with news of the vaccines coming along, we do have light at the end of this dark tunnel. However, behind the scenes the Committee have been extremely busy working on your requests to provide enhanced external facilities at Bubwith Leisure and Sports Centre. We followed your suggestions on our ERYC Survey – so take a look at our plans and aspirations.

So, on behalf of the Trustees and committee –  please keep safe and well.

We will be ready and willing to open again as soon as permitted.


News from 2020…

Results of our Survey:

Thank you to those who filled in our survey – results and comments are here! The HUGE majority of feedback was incredibly positive, and we are thrilled to have ticked off numerous suggestions such as the improvement of the toilets and changing rooms, and a lot more of the suggested improvements are in the pipeline!


We understand that you would like more fitness/activity and sports classes, as well as community groups.

We need the talented individuals who run these groups to get in touch, so we can help bring a range of activities to the local and surrounding communities.

To encourage more morning and day activities, we are offering the hire of the Main Hall for HALF PRICE Monday to Friday, 09.00-17.00 for the foreseeable future (basically, until this nasty virus situation eases).

So, if you run a fitness/exercise class, a community group, meets for specialised activity for all ages and everything in between, GET IN TOUCH!

We would love to work with you, and together we can bring an ever more varied timetable to Bubwith Leisure & Sports Centre!

This means that our normal hourly rate of £18.50 will be reduced to £9.25 / hour. We believe that this will encourage suitable social distancing within groups that otherwise would consider using alternate smaller areas.

Please arrange booking in the normal way. Stay safe out there.

We have an amazing link showing both inside and outside of the Bubwith Leisure and Sports Centre – 360 degree video.

A bit about our beginnings: The 6 acres or so of land were acquired for the village in 1951, and currently comprise three tennis courts, a children’s playground, car park with a garage and a score board, and a cricket and football pitches. The main building, the Bubwith Sports and Leisure Centre, was built around 1990 and is the focus of many of our activities. Our facilities are available for hire and you can check for availability on our calendar.

Please take a look at our News page  and Playground and Outside Space 2021page for exciting information on recent developments at Bubwith Sports and Leisure Centre, with up to date photos.

The whole enterprise is run by volunteers for the benefit of the wider community. The Charity, Bubwith Leisure and Sports Centre, no. 1177049, has a body of trustees elected each year.

The refurbished hall was reopened on Friday, 4th October 2019 by Harry Gration from BBC Look North. See this link for some great photos!

Also within the Leisure Centre is Barry’s Bar and Lounge, this is Bubwith Leisure Centre Ltd., Company Number 04778831 and registered at Companies House.

Monthly meetings are held usually on the first Thursday of the month at 7pm at the Bubwith Sports & Leisure Centre. The AGM for 2020 was held on Thursday, 5th March at 7pm.
