Important information for Southwell Leisure Centre members


We take the health and safety of all of our customers seriously.  Following the District Council’s most recent inspection of Southwell Leisure Centre, they identified some essential maintenance work that is required on the top floor of the leisure centre.  This means that unfortunately, in order to complete this work, the top floor of the leisure centre, including the fitness suite, will be closed from 14th December 2022 until around the end of January 2023.

We are so incredibly sorry for the inconvenience this will cause and we really wish we were not in this situation.

Where appropriate, membership fees will be free of charge for the month of January 2023 — more information to follow.

The downstairs free weights area, exercise classes, swimming, squash and badminton will operate as normal, as will trampolining, gymnastics and swimming for our younger members. 

Whilst the fitness suite is closed, you are able to use our other leisure centres in Blidworth (9 miles), Newark (11 miles) and Boughton (14 miles) but we know that they may not be particularly convenient.  Under 16 years are not permitted to use the Free Weights Suite but can access the other leisure centres at Junior Gym times.

In answer to this, additional HIIT classes will be available, the Active Cycle Studio will be open for drop in sessions alongside the fitness  class timetable and the free weights suite which is bookable via

We will be regularly updating our website and social media so please keep checking back for further updates.  If you have any questions, please speak to one of the team when
visiting the centre, email or call us on 01636 655780.
