Splash World Closure

Please note Splash World is currently closed for refurbishment, all other facilities are open and available while works take place.

Dunes Splash World is a hive of activity all year round offering a combined leisure centre and water-based theme park in one location. Located on the leisure side of the complex, Dunes Leisure Centre offers a 12m learner pool and a large 25m main pool ideal for all swimmers whether you’re taking your first dip or if you want to practice your technique.

On the first floor an extensive studio timetable in the large sprung floor fitness studio is available to offer a range of classes whether you wish to tone up, get in shape or get fit.  If you don’t fancy a fitness class, the bright and spacious fitness suite overlooks Splash World with a range of machines and free weights to cater for all levels of fitness. We offer around 40 virtual spinning classes each week and around 50 instructor held classes.

The ground floor features a large sports hall with four badminton courts, leading outside we have four brand new 3G pitches available to hire for anyone.
