Leisure centre

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A leisure centre in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia (also called aquatic centres), Singapore and Canada is a purpose built building or site, usually owned and operated by the city, borough council or municipal district council, where people go to keep fit or relax through using the facilities.

Typical facilities

Facilities may include a swimming pool (many with water slide), large sports hall, squash courts, cafeteria, licensed bar, fitness suite, aerobics studios, outdoor grass and/or artificial pitches for football (soccer), hockey etc., a solarium, sauna and/or steam room.

Leisure centres in Canada are staffed by leisure centre attendants employed by the local council. They carry out a range of tasks to help and supervise people using leisure centre facilities and act as swimming pool lifeguards, gym instructors and coaches, offering advice, motivation, and expertise to users. Many of its functions may overlap with that of a community centre.

Leisure centres are also popular in Australia, where they are mostly privately operated but government-funded. In that country, they are often also called recreation centres, or most commonly aquatic centres due to the swimming facilities being the most popular facility that is available.

In some areas of the UK and Canada (such as Calgary) these services are now operated by private companies on contract to the local authority.

Most towns in the UK are now introducing leisure facilities for the local community.
