Penkridge Leisure Centre

Welcome to Penkridge Leisure Centre


Staffordshire has been categorised as tier 3. We can confirm that the following will be open however restrictions will apply:

  • Gym
  • Toning Suite
  • 3G Pitches
  • Badminton (singles only from the same household. Maximum 2 players per court)

Exercise Classes update:

Tier 3 does not permit exercise classes to continue therefore we are unable to provide classes in the leisure centres currently. You can however access our online, live classes which provide access to over 20 classes per week.

Members can access the online classes for free. If you're a member and you have not registered for joining the online classes, get in touch by emailing us at Leisure@sstaffs.gov.uk so that we can send you a unique link allowing you to register for free with unlimited access.

Non-members can access classes with your first class being free; classes will be £4 thereafter. To book and pay for a class click here

For just £12 per month you can take out an online classes membership giving you unlimited access. Find out more here

Pool update: Unfortunately, the air handling unit for the swimming pool has failed again. The part has been ordered and thankfully it's looking like we won't have to wait too long however it means that we will be unable to open the pool as planned on 3 December. We can only apologise but all being well, the pool should hopefully be back up and running in a few weeks. We will keep you informed on progress. Apologies everyone.

Bookings: We are now taking bookings. To book, members should book online here

If you are unable to book online, call us during the following times: ·

  • Wednesday 25 November - Friday 27 November, 9am-3pm
  • Monday 30 November - Tuesday 1 December, 9am-5pm.

Membership Fees

Member payments will be zero for the December payment as members are owed a month for November. Suspended members will remain suspended. We will keep you informed and post more detail here in due course.
