Proposed changes to the provision of Leisure Services in Gateshead
We would like to hear your views on the future of Leisure Services in Gateshead. This consultation is your opportunity to be open and honest about leisure in our borough, and in particular to tell us what impact you would feel if a Council leisure centre that you use closed. In addition, we want to hear any ideas you may have about how the service can be improved.

No one misses out on activity or fun at Birtley Swimming Centre.

Birtley Swimming Centre is GO Gateshead's only leisure centre dedicated to swimming. While other centres have gyms and fitness studios and athletics tracks, we're focused solely on swimming. We've got three pools - two smaller pools and one large 25 metre pool - where you can come and learn to swim, get fit, work on your technique and have fun.

Our timetable offers something for everyone, with dedicated slots for public swimming, lane swimming, Aquafit classes, lessons and family fun.

We also have one thing that all other pools in Gateshead are envious of... a water slide!
