March 2021: The Leisure and Sports Centre AGM took place on Thursday 18th, by Zoom. The chairman and treasurer presented their reports and there was a further report on the status of the bar.

Activity is limited owing to the lockdown, but we are ready to re-open from 17th May if permitted for limited activities and fully in June.

The full chairman’s report for the year is available, click here.

We thank retiring trustees Carol Hall and Becky Farrow, and welcome new trustees, elected at the meeting, Vicky Baines and Louise Healy. At a short trustees meeting afterwards Lizanne Southworth was elected as vice-chair, the other officers remain the same as on the website. Watch this space for announcements.


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.

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

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!
