Leisure Centre Activities

We offer a tailored programme of activities for children including special school holiday sessions 

Holiday Activities

We offer a fun packed activity programme for juniors during school holidays.  The programme is available at Newark Sports and Fitness Centre plus Dukeries and Southwell Leisure Centres. Further details can be found in our timetables section.

Active4Today Sports Camp

As part of our holiday activity programme we offer a sports camp. These fast paced fun sessions burn that excess energy, whilst supporting children to experience new sports and games, encourage teamwork and enable new friendships to be made.

Each Sports camp offers structured indoor sports and provide children a great opportunity to try a variety of activities they may not otherwise have access to.  We often welcome guest coaches from community based sports clubs to deliver specialist sessions alongside our coaching teams as this allows children to 'have a go' at a new sport, and enables clubs to open their doors to new members.

Every session includes supervised access to our fitness suites and a fun swim session in one of our pools, so don't forget to bring your kit!

Please ensure children wear appropriate clothing, swimwear and footwear. Bring plenty to drink and a light snack.

Sessions must be pre-booked and paid for on Leisurehub
