Following the Government announcement yesterday about the new measures being put in place to manage the Coronavirus outbreak, the Council has taken the difficult decision to close all leisure facilities from Wednesday 18 March 2020 until further notice.  We will continue to closely monitor and act on the latest Government advice.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your continued support.  We hope to be back with you soon.

Further updates can be found here, on our Facebook pages and on the Council’s The Shuttle website

Established in 2008, re:fresh continues to provide a programme of subsidised leisure to a wide range of the borough’s population, helping to turn around poor local health statistics, many of which were linked to physical inactivity.

As part of the programme those who qualify can access our fantastic gym facilities for just £1 per session.

To qualify users must be aged 16 or over and live, work, have a GP or be in full time education in Blackburn with Darwen.

You can register for the re:fresh membership online or by visiting any of our leisure centres – please note you will be asked to provide proof of qualification upon application or when collecting your leisure card.

When are the re:fresh Gym sessions available:

Blackburn Sports and Leisure Centre Saturday & Sunday 1pm – 5pm
Darwen Leisure Centre Tuesday & Thursday 2pm – 4pm
Saturday & Sunday 1pm – 5pm
Witton Park Arena Monday, Wednesday & Friday 2pm – 4pm
