Penistone Leisure Centre is ‘led by the community, for the community’.
The Leisure Centre is run almost entirely by volunteers and is led by a board of 7 trustees. We operate as the charity ‘Sporting Penistone’ (Charity number 1157786).
The Leisure Centre receives no regular funding from central or local government, so is sustained by it’s own income, one off pots of grant funding and generous donations of time and money from the local community.
In 2020/21 the Leisure Centre underwent a £350k refurbishment with thanks to funding from ‘European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development’ and ‘BMBC Section 106’, and many other funders which has updated the facilities to safeguard the centre for the future.
Mission and Values-
Our mission is to enable and inspire greater levels of health and fitness in our local community and to be a place for people to come together.
We aim to be a venue that welcomes everyone as both centre users or as volunteers.
The Leisure Centre is open 7 days a week for Gym, Classes, Sports, Parties, Private Hire and NHS Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
