Take a Tour


Eldon Leisure Centre's 5-a-side courts are for hire throughout the week, plus there's the extremely successful 5-a-side football leagues with over 90 teams playing each week.

We currently have vacancies for teams to enrol in our successful lunch time and evening 5-a-side leagues. Our teams are fully registered with the Northumberland F.A and prize money is awarded to league winners throughout the year. We have both 30 min and 20 min league games that can fit easily into most busy lifestyles. 


Improve your reflexes, hand-to-eye coordination and overall fitness levels with this popular racquet sport.

Playing badminton is a great way to have fun and stay healthy, whatever your age or level of ability.  Whether you’re booking a court as a group, to compete against others or want to learn how to play, we have a session for you.

Better works in direct partnership with Badminton England to ensure that badminton is delivered in a systematic way across our leisure centres and, more importantly, provides you with easily accessible sessions when you want them.
