Birtley Leisure Centre

Temporary soft-play closure
Due to an event, the GO Bears Den soft-play at Gateshead Leisure Centre will be closed until 3.30pm on Thursday 20 December. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Come for the activity. Stay for the fun.

Whether you're looking to stay active or get active, Birtley Leisure Centre has everything you need to get you moving.

From Legs, Bums and Tums to high intensity interval training, our multiple weekly fitness classes are suitable for all abilities and all overseen by a team of friendly, qualified staff. Our centre is also home to GO Gateshead's resident Shotokan Karate classes, which are perfect for anyone over the age of six that wants to experience the system of self-defence and physical culture. Those things would be enough for most people, but the sport and activity doesn't end there! Our large sports hall opens up the floor to both ball and racket sports, including badminton, 5-a-side football, volleyball, basketball and netball - perfect if you enjoy getting active (and competitive) with friends.

When exercise isn't on the cards, you'll be happy to know we've a sauna for you to relax and unwind!

Birtley Leisure Centre is a place to come and meet your fitness goals, in your own time, at your own leisure.
