Improvement work and changes to the centre's programme

The pool at Halesowen Leisure Centre is currently closed until Spring 2022 as part of a multi-million pound revamp of the site. The relocated temporary gym and limited fitness facilities will still be open at selected times during the refurbishment works. 

We’re sorry for any inconvenience. Customers are reminded that they can access facilities at Crystal and Dudley leisure centres and the Dell Stadium.


Easing of restrictions in leisure centres

Following the government’s announcement regarding the easing of restrictions, we are pleased to be able to offer a more comprehensive programme at our centres but we will continue to take a cautious approach on how we operate. Please visit the individual centres webpages for times, sessions and other useful information.

Please be advised that, due to the on-going Covid situation, we are experiencing staffing shortages. Therefore, sessions may be cancelled or restricted at short notice. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
