A word from our sponsors

Here at Burnley Leisure we pride ourselves on working hard for children and young people.  We recognise these are our customers of tomorrow and possible future sporting stars in years to come.  Additionally it is important for all children to keep fit and healthy along with learning life skills such as swimming and we want to play our part in this.

We have a 25 metre main pool plus a training pool with a moveable pool floor, allowing greater use of the pool - from parent and toddlers in the shallow water to sub-aqua diving to a depth of 2.5 metres.  All this can be viewed in comfort from the 200 seater spectator area. (Standard setting is 1.1 to 1.4m) 

Changing facilities are provided in the form of a unisex ‘village’ changing area with access changing rooms available for customers requiring specialised changing facilities.  Lockers are provided and operate with a pound/trolley coin which is refundable.

We offer Trampolining courses - Jumping Jacks for 4 to 6 year olds - Beginners/Improvers for 7 years+ - Adults from 14 years+ 

Our learn to swim programme starts  from Pre-School Ducklings for 3 to 4 year olds - Beginners/Improvers for 5 years+

Crash Courses for swimming are available at both St Peter’s and Padiham Leisure Centres with special offers often running during the school holidays.  

We stock a  wide range of swimming aids clothing and accessories to purchase available at affordable prices.

Parent and child sessions take place in the pool and are informal sessions with toys and background music that assist parents in introducing babies and toddlers to the pool, providing enjoyment and fun when playing with water.

Tumbledown Tots soft play sessions offer lots of fun and enjoyment for both child and parent(s). This class aims to help your child develop basic skills of co-ordination, balance, strength and communication through a series of games, singing and play all encouraged by our highly qualified and dedicated staff.  Parents also enjoy meeting other mums, dads and grandparents in this twice weekly session.  Tumbledown Tots session and children’s parties are also available at Padiham Leisure Centre.
