Welcome To Dronfield Sports Centre!

Situated in the heart of the town, Dronfield Sports Centre offers a range of facilities allowing customers to Just Do More!

The sports centre offers ample free parking and convenient public transport in to the civic centre. For more information on our location, please visit the link below.


The swimming pool at Dronfield Sports Centre temporarily closed on 8 December 2014 for 14 weeks for essential improvements.


This investment will see works such as new pool liners in each pool, improved steps, under water LED lighting, new windows, upgraded changing room areas with improved drainage, new shower facilities and separate air handling (temperature) systems.
The good news is that this investment will provide an improved leisure facility – and at no extra cost to you – but there will inevitably be some disruption to our services and parts of the building.
It will be business as usual for most of the centre, as users will still have full use of the fitness suite, fitness classes and sauna suite. However, some disruption to sports hall activities and squash courts during the day time may occur and the dry changing rooms may also be closed, meaning that both sets of changing rooms will be unavailable to the public for a period of time!
We therefore advise that, wherever possible, you come to the centre dressed and ready to take part in your chosen activities. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but we feel the improvements being made will be worthwhile and to the benefit of the centre’s users in the long-term.
Those who have swimming lessons and other activities booked in the pool during the proposed period of closure have been notified. In addition, you can use the swimming pools at our other leisure facilities; Eckington Swimming Pool and Sharley Park Leisure Centre in Clay Cross.
