Our refurbished building
If you haven’t been to Penistone Leisure Centre since before the pandemic, you’ll notice a huge difference.
Our building has undergone extensive renovations and is now fully accessible, with ramps at the entrance and level access throughout. We have a fully fitted out kitchen, a studio / cafe, a meeting room and new light and smart gym. We have new toilets and a changing place for people with severe disabilities.
You can attend activities, or hire rooms for private use or to run a class or event.
The Main Hall
Our 290m2 Main Hall is a versatile space, which can be used as a whole, or divided into 1/3 and 2/3 spaces by an acoustic curtain to allow two activities to take place simultaneously. The Sports Hall has energy efficient LED Lighting and also disco lights for parties/roller disco/classes. There are large space heaters in each half of the hall and a sound system which can be controlled from the Skate Store.
The Main Hall can be hired for Classes, Roller Skating, Badminton, Parties, 5-a-side, Nerf, Boccia, anything you can think of really! We have Cricket Nets, which can be used for indoor batting/bowling practice.
If you are an instructor and would like to run your class at Penistone Leisure Centre, you can fill in our Booking Enquiry Form.

The Studio/Café is a light and bright multifunctional space with lots of windows and double doors which open out onto a small patio.
We use it as a Café during roller skating sessions, and for other sessions like our Board Games Café and social sessions. The room benefits from viewing windows between the Cafe and the main hall, so it’s ideal for having a coffee and a chat with a friend whilst your child(ren) rollerskate.
The Studio is also suitable for smaller classes such as Baby Massage, Tai Chi and as a space for activities like table tennis. It has a firm rubber floor and plenty of radiators

We have a spacious and pleasant meeting room available to hire by the hour, as a one off, or on a regular basis. Want somewhere to meet a client, but don’t fancy them coming round to your house? Our meeting room is ideal.
We have good quality wi-fi and printing/copying services are available if needed.
The meeting room is also suitable for hire for sports massage, physiotherapy, counselling etc, as it has obscure glass windows, so is a private space with a lockable door.

We have an excellent range of roller skates, roller blades, helmets, and pads available to hire for our skating sessions and lessons at Penistone Leisure Centre. From the smallest toddler sizes to adults size 14, we have skates for all!
Our weekend and holiday skating sessions include skate hire in the price of £3 per person, or you are welcome to bring your own if you have them.
We have an Adult Skate Disco on the second Saturday of the month, which is time for the grown-ups to let their hair down!
