A significant development project was undertaken at Eldon Leisure Centre during 2015 to introduce several new family leisure facilities.

The Tenpin Bowling Centre and Vertigo Adventure Climbing Arena have proved to be very popular and the Adventure Soft Play area has been a huge hit, with many sessions reaching maximum capacity, packed with children and guardians.

We are going to make further changes to the layout in order to meet the massive demand as well as ensuring we can still provide the same great set of activities currently on offer at Eldon Leisure Centre.

One key change is the relocation of the soft play facility which will move to a much bigger area. Read on for how this change may affect you.

  • Soft Play Relocation: Temporary closure from Monday 5th June 2017

The soft play area will be transferred to the current gym space to create a family entertainment zone alongside the existing tenpin bowling centre, cafe and bar facilities.

The current soft play area will be closed from Monday 5th June and we anticipate the new soft play area will open prior to the school summer holidays.

  • Gym Relocation: Temporary closure Thursday 25th May and Friday 26th May 2017

The gym  will be unavailable on these two days while a relocation takes place.

The current indoor cycling studio, near reception, will be the new home for the gym and will reopen on Saturday 27th May following redecoration. During the gym closure, all gym members can make use of Newcastle’s other Better leisure centres at no extra cost. Find out more about Better leisure centres in Newcastle here.
