Hungerford Leisure Centre

Hung LC FoyerHungerford is a historic and thriving market town and Hungerford Leisure Centre is very much a key part of the town and community. The Centre is linked to John O’Gaunt School and shares the main sports hall and gymnasium facilities. Sharing these facilities with the school has enabled the Centre to build a strong relationship which benefits the pupils of the school and customers to the Leisure Centre.

The Centre has a very attractive 25 metre swimming pool with a timber-frame roof structure that enhances the overall appearance. The pool recently upgraded their lane lines to anti-wave which has proved to be very popular with our regular club and lane swimmers. The pool hosts many user groups including five local primary schools, John O’Gaunt school, Newbury Swimming Club and over 350 children of all ages currently on the Aquazone swimming lesson programme. Disability swimming, parent and toddler 50+ sessions and inflatable parties are also on the regular swimming timetable, as are plenty of general and adult lane-swimming sessions.

Hung LC Gym 1 400The fitness suite has 26 stations providing a great variation of exercise with over 320 members.

The sports hall is a community facility after 5.30pm on Monday to Friday and all day weekends. This large facility holds four badminton courts, basketball, indoor football and cricket nets. The space attracts a varied programme of user groups from martial arts, the local badminton club, Hungerford Cricket Club, Hungerford Town Football Club and a local netball group.

Children’s activities are catered for as well. The Centre hosts a popular holiday activity scheme (Camp Adventure) and is also available for children’s parties at weekends.

The gymnasium is where the majority of fitness classes are held throughout the week: it also hosts a popular children’s gymnastic programme.
