What We Do?


Marl Pits Leisure Centre is managed by Rossendale Leisure Trust which is the largest not for profit social enterprise in Rossendale.

In our colourful, modern centre there is something for everyone, from an indoor 25 metre swimming pool, a toddler pool, a well-equipped gym
to high energy fitness classes, and we can guarantee satisfaction for all. We employ a range of fully qualified staff that help to shape
and create the friendly, welcoming atmosphere which is loved by our customers.

In 2012 we added gym facilities, a dance/exercise studio and four all-weather 3G five-aside football pitches. As an organisation we continuously thrive to create new projects
and ideas to benefit our customers and bring something new to the area, encouraging fun and active lifestyles.

To contact the centre manager please call 01706 226850 or alternatively, email carole.fairhurst@rltrust.co.uk
