Washington Leisure Centre is buzzing with all sorts of activities for the whole family. Enter the modern indoor sports hall for a game of badminton, squash, or table tennis. You can even have a football  showdown with the kids at one of the 5-a-side football pitches.

Something younger visitors love about Washington Leisure Centre is the large two-tier multi-activity soft play area. There your little ones can run around, race down slides and everyone’s favourite - dive into a huge ball pit. You can relax at the café while your tiny monkeys are busy playing. Oh, and the soft play is great for hosting kids’ parties too!

Up for a swim? Practise your strokes at the 25-metre main pool at your own leisure, or sign up for one of the award-winning classes at the centre and learn how to swim. The learner pool is quite cool as well, it has 2 flumes and state-of-the-art sensory hydro features.
