Ferndown Leisure Centre

Facilities include swimming pool, gym, workout classes, sports hall, squash courts, outdoor pitches and a dance studio . We have developed a range of fun activities and sports for children to learn and love throughout their childhood giving them skills to take into adult life. Swimming sessions include: learning to swim, swim tag, family fun, baby and toddlers, aquatic classes and swimming club. Activities and clubs include: table tennis, basketball, football, tennis, gymnastics, taekwondo, badminton, squash, karate, gun club, cricket and trampolining. We believe a physically active child is much more likely to become a physically active adult. We run supervised gym sessions for children aged 11 to 15 years.
