Welcome to Grantham Meres Leisure Centre

Grantham Meres Leisure Centre offers a huge range of facilities and an even wider range of activities!

From our 70 station gym suite filled with the latest equipment to our group fitness programme featuring both live and virtual instructor led classes – including indoor cycling and a wide range of Les Mills classes.

Our 25 metre eight lane swimming pool is great for serious (and not so serious!) swimmers and our 12 metre learner pool and 2 smaller leisure pools with added features such as water sprays, bubble jets and flume are perfect for family time.

Further to this Grantham also offers a full range of indoor and outdoor sports across our three activity sports halls, outdoor running track and state of the art 3G football pitch. 

All of our facilities are at the heart of the local sports scene and we are home to a large number of local community based clubs.
