Swimming Pools

Here at Ulverson Leisure Centre we have a fantastic 25 metre x four lane swimming pool. Our ultra violet light cleaning technology ensures that you will make a splash and enjoy a clean and safe swim every time you visit.

We offer a range of casual swimming sessions everyday at the pool including adults only, Active Life, lane swim, parent and toddler and much more. At the weekends our ‘funtime' sessions provide fun for the whole family, so come along and join in.


Fitness Gym

Ulverston Leisure Centre has an impressive and modern fitness gym, refurbished and extended in 2014, boasting a variety of the very latest gym equipment. Now almost twice the orginally size, the gym has 36 pieces of equipment including a selection of cross trainers, treadmills, rowing machines, bikes and more; plus a selection of resistance equipment and a free weights area. 

We aim to create a community feel at the centre which makes our gym a very welcoming and relaxed place to work out, whatever your fitness ability, age or fitness objectives. The team prides itself on being welcoming, knowledgeable and professional to make your workout experience the best it can possibly be. 

All new members are introduced to the gym with a full induction which includes a tour of all the equipment and how best to use it within your workout. During your induction, a member of the team will discuss with you your goals and objectives and, from this, create a personally tailored programme for you to follow each time you visit the gym.

We also hold a range of fitness classes in the gym, at the tennis centre and in the community - something for everyone from Pilates to PowerPump, Yoga to Boxfit, Total Body Conditioning to Group Cycle.


Tennis Centre

Ulverston Leisure Centre is proud to offer Cumbria's largest indoor and outdoor tennis venue boasting unrivalled court facilities, junior tennis development, tennis tournaments, events and much more all year round. Our qualified LTA professional tennis coaches offer a range of coaching options to suit all ages and abilities, as well as supervising sessions such as ladies only and social tennis.

We have four indoor acrylic courts and two floodlit outdoor synthetic grass courts – all of which are available to hire on a casual basis. So, whatever the weather, rain rarely stops play here at the tennis centre.

New for 2015! Badminton courts are available to hire at Ulverston every day during the day time and all weekend. But why get into badminton? Here's a few facts that might get you in the mood to hit a shuttlecock around...

Badminton is the world's fastest racket sport! With shuttlecocks known to reach speeds of up to 200mph, faster than the eurostar train, badminton easily beats tennis and squash for this record.

The tennis centre is also a venue for fitness classes such as Group Cycling and Zumba.


Outdoor Pitches and Courts

Situated alongside our tennis centre, the outdoor complex here at Ulverston has a full sized, floodlit all-weather astroturf pitch. This is a fantastic playing surface for hockey, football, rugby training and much more…



We have four indoor acrylic courts, three outdoor polymeric courts and also two floodlit outdoor synthetic grass courts – all of which are available to hire on a casual basis. So, whatever the weather, rain rarely stops play here at the tennis centre!



The astroturf is a secure site with a car park and changing room pavilion alongside, making it a very safe and convenient venue. It is also fully floodlit for those darker winter nights.

The pitch can be booked all year round and we also offer a very popular ‘kickabout' rate for juniors and adults to use the pitch for a casual session.

We have spaces available during the day and in the evenings if you are looking for an after work booking. Group bookings are a great idea and very cost effective, so please contact us for further details on our pricing.

If you would like to hire the pitch for a sporting event, please do let us know and we can discuss rates and discounts. We are very keen to promote local community sport here and we may be able to assist you with PR opportunities for your event through our marketing department.


3G Pitch

Our all-weather, all-sport, all year round pitch is now open; bookings are being taken at reception. Perfect for clubs, groups and a casual game with friends.



Our fun netball sessions are now held at the tennis centre (no longer at UVHS) on a Monday evening between 6pm and 7pm. Sessions are for ladies and girls aged 14 and above.


Crown Green Bowling

Why not enjoy a spot of crown green bowling? We have our own private bowling green here at Ulverston which is available all year round. The bowling green is in a quiet, relaxing space with access to the car park and changing pavilion/toilets.

We can provide bowling equipment for hire at the tennis centre just across the car park, so come along with your friends or family and enjoy a game. We also offer a very affordable bowling season ticket for those wanting to play more regularly.
