Since 2019

About Us

Elswick Community Leisure Centre is a community-led, not-for-profit centre for fitness, health and fun, which houses a public gym, swimming pool, space for community events, meetings and fitness classes.

Our Pool

On 7 September 2019, the doors opened to a new era, with a new employed team working with the voluntary charity board to run the Leisure Centre.

Elswick Community Leisure Centre has been championed by local residents and supporters, determined to provide an affordable space for health and fitness, and to ensure the survival of this beautiful building.  

Our journey has been nothing but an easy one due to unprecedented times, such as the pandemic. However, with the help of our amazing board members, staff and community, we have managed to come back stronger than ever. 

The main mission here at Elswick Community Pool and Gym is to provide a safe and friendly space for everyone regardless of their age, gender, background and abilities. We strongly believe that everyone should have equal opportunities when it comes to fitness and not only. 

We pride ourselves with the multitude of sessions and services that we provide such as gender specific sessions, adults only swims, inflatable and party slots, family swims, fitness classes, personal training sessions, swimming lessons, massages, etc., in an attempt to make our venue as inclusive and welcoming for everyone and their specific needs. 


“Finally, A Community Where Everyone is Welcome. Much More Than A Pool”
