Active Tameside


As a registered charity we reinvest 100% of our profits back into our accessible-to-all facilities and community health and social care services to deliver public benefit and address inequalities.

Our £20m health and fitness flagship, Tameside Wellness Centre in Denton – a joint project with Tameside Council and Sport England – offers access to state-of-the art facilities including an eight-lane 25m pool, 60-plus station 24/7 gym and fitness studio, spa area, 10-pin bowling alley and community meeting rooms.

Across our 10 leisure facilities we provide high quality gyms and six swimming pools – including a new six-lane, 25m pool which opened at Active Hyde in July 2021 – fitness studios and attractions including Adventure Medlock, Adventure Longdendale, Hyde Leisure Pool and Soft Play Zones

Active Tameside is dedicated to improving the physical fitness and wellbeing of everyone in Tameside and we provide a broad range of support services for people of all ages.

These include our multiple ukactive Award winning Everybody Can service – education and adult social care provision which breaks down the barriers to sport, exercise, fulfilling activities and opportunities to enable EVERYBODY to thrive and reach their potential.

We also run the Live Active service which helps people with long term physical conditions to get active and Active Education which supports in-school PE, sport, mental health, healthy eating and more, engaging over 11,000 children each week.
