Book your game.

Gateshead Leisure Centre's sports hall is a inspirational place, capable of transforming itself into an arena for a multitude of sports. One day witness the drama of a late free throw on the basketball court, or a spectacular dive to keep the shuttlecock alive. The next, the wild celebrations of a last minute goal in 5-a-side or netball.

Our sports hall is your theatre of dreams. A place to create sporting memories that last a lifetime.

You bring your friends, we'll provide the sporting floor.


Badminton is great for all ages and abilities. It tests your reactions, coordination and flexibility, and it's guaranteed to get you moving. Play at a leisurely or competitive pace, in a singles match or doubles. However you play, and at whatever level, expect a fun and rewarding challenge whenever you step onto the court.

Badminton courts feature all markings and regulation nets.

You can't beat 5-a-side, with it's double figure scorelines, questionable head-height decisions and next-goal-winner rule. You can't beat goals from the halfway line, silky stepovers and cheeky nutmegs, or the great workout this indoor game provides. If 11-a-side is the beautiful game, 5-a-side is for the love of the game.

Our 5-a-side pitch features standard goals and regulation markings.
