New Ripon pool and leisure centre refurbishment project
The construction of our new pool and refurbishment of Ripon Leisure Centre is under way and scheduled to be completed in autumn 2021.
During this time Ripon Leisure Centre will remain open as usual. A temporary entrance and car park is now located at the rear of the building, accessed from Knaresborough Road. There will also be some changes to fitness classes and rooms whilst the leisure centre is being refurbished.
For more details about the project please visit our update page.

If you're aged between 12 and 15, this specialised class is just for you, whatever your ability level. It's designed to help you feel more confident, boost energy levels and improve sport-related performance.
Before you start, a parent or guardian will have to sign a consent form and you'll need an induction with an instructor. During the induction the instructor will create a relevant training programme based on your physical ability, capability and gym experience; this will be reviewed like any other membership.
This membership includes swimming whenever the swim programme permits and use of the gym at any time as long as the member is accompanied by a person aged 16 or over and must have undertaken an induction themselves.
Alternatively, a 45 minute supervised session by a Brimhams Fitness instructor will be available daily for those members who can't bring a person aged 16 and over:
Monday to Friday 4.30pm until 5.15pm; Saturday and Sunday noon until 12.45pm.
