Whitehaven Leisure Centre Gym

There is a spacious gym at the centre, housed in a mezzanine level above the sports hall, enabling users to watch the sports action below as they workout on one of the machines. The gym was refurbished in 2014 and has a good range of high quality cardiovascular and resistance equipment, as well as a small free weights area.

You must complete an induction to the gym before you can use the equipment, and sign up as a pay-and-play member for a small administrative charge. The induction costs £16.65 and gym sessions cost £6.55. You can also receive personal training here through a local company working in partnership with the centre.

Fitness Classes

Whitehaven Sports Centre has two fitness studios. There is a small studio dedicated for spinning classes, and a bright, modern studio used for other types of classes. Classes available include pilates, total body conditioning, circuits, interval training and boxfit. Classes cost between £3.55 and £6.10 and are open to non-members with the option to attend on a one-off basis. You do need to book in advance to confirm your place.

Sports Hall

The sports centre’s main feature is the huge sports hall that is a hub of activity. With the capacity for nine badminton courts there is plenty to keep you occupied here, whatever your interest. You can book a badminton court, play a game of table tennis, have a go at trampolining, attend the weekly roller disco (open to both children and adults), or hire half the hall for a game of basketball, netball or five-a-side football. The centre also has a squash court, available to hire for £6.95 for a 45-minute session.

Features for Kids

Whitehaven Sports Centre is home to Jungle Jack’s Soft Play, filled with jungle themed play structures to climb over, tunnel through and explore. There is a dedicated area for under-3s, and sessions cost £4.35, with non-walking babies being free of charge. There is no café here, but there is a seating area for parents with vending machines.

A crèche operates at the centre, each Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday in the mornings. Qualified staff will look after your children for up to two hours, enabling you to attend a fitness class or workout in the gym, costing £3.80 for non-members. You do need to book a place in advance.

Gymnastic classes are available for school-aged children, and must be block-booked in advance with a waiting list in operation. Additionally, each Saturday, there is a football academy operating in the sports hall for children. Pre-booking is not required.
