Sports and leisure centres - New Horizons Sport and Leisure

Facilities available

We've missed you! And we're delighted to say that our leisure centres are gradually reopening services and facilities in line with the Government's road map.

Swimming

Lane swims can be booked via the Active Stoke appstoke.gov.uk/sports or calling the centre on 01782 235037. All other swimming sessions - including leisure swims - must be pre-booked by calling the centre. The numbers per booking and per session are restricted subject to guidance. For times, click here

Changing room numbers will be limited. Changing rooms and lockers will be allocated to each lane swimmer or household/support bubble on arrival. We recommend that customers arrive ‘beach ready’.
