Leisure services review

We are undertaking a review of the leisure services provided at Bracknell Leisure Centre, Coral Reef Waterworld and Downshire Golf Complex. Due to severe financial pressures on the council, this could result in facilities being managed by a third party operator by early in 2018. A public meeting about this was held on 5 January.

Inflatable Aqua Run

Our popular 18-metre inflatable Aqua Run will be in the training pool between 1pm and 3pm every Saturday. It's open to all however, children under 8 years, non-competent swimmers and those wearing armbands must be accompanied by an adult in the water.

6-a-side football teams wanted

PlayFootball are hoping for teams to play in leagues (especially Wednesdays).

Please get in touch if you want to be part of a fun, enjoyable night with your mates.
