After the recent Government decision of a second national lockdown Purbeck Sports Centre will close at the end of the business day on Wednesday 4 November. We hope to reopen again on Thursday 3 December. Memberships will be frozen during lockdown. Once we reopen we shall review and amend our safety information accordingly in line with the most relevant Government guidance at the time. Please check back for more details.


Our children’s softplay area and sauna remain closed. We are awaiting further advice from Government on when we can open these facilities to the public again. Please check back regularly for updates.

Unfortunately we are unable to provide any children's school holiday activities.
