Swimming Pool

There is always something happening in the water at Ongar.  Whether its our ASA accredited Swim School swimming lessons or Aqua Aerobics our wet activities offer something for everyone.  We offer results cards in the pool for those who want to use the pool to get fit and fun sessions for those who just want to relax.


Fitness Suite

If you enjoy a good workout in a state of the art environment then why not try out our fitness suite.  With the latest Precor equipment this is a great way to boost your fitness levels.  We have results cards designed to offer you a different workout every time and you can also book our personal training to provide motivation and results driven exercise plans.


Sports Hall

Our sports hall is able to offer a full range of group activities from 5-a-side football to badminton.  We also run some of our group exercise classes in the sports hall like our popular circuit training.


Group Exercise Studios

If you like to work out in a group then we have got classes to suit every need.  From classes designed specifically for young adults to sessions designed to help you unwind and re-energise – there will be something to spark your interest.  We offer the very latest in group exercise classes and techniques and offer taster sessions for smaller groups of people wanting to try out a new class.


Outdoor Pitches

Fancy a game of footy? – we have got the pitches to accommodate you out in the fresh air.


Children’s Birthday Parties

Choose to have a main pool party, a soft play party, trampoline party, football frenzie party, or an active sports party. The most important thing is that we will make sure that the children are kept entertained.

Our party leaders will look after all of your needs to make sure everyone has a great time - and we'll clear up the mess too!


Holiday Activities

Why not join our Holiday Activities which caters for children aged 3 yrs and up. Activities include team games, swimming (over 8’s only), trampoline, football, indoor athletics, bouncy castle and active antz.



Our crèche is open each weekday so that parents can take part in activity knowing their children will be well looked after.  Children can come from a few weeks old.  Colourful toys and activities ensure your child enjoys their stay and learns to interact with other children of the same age.

Our Creche opening times are: Monday 10am - 12pm, Tuesday 09:30am - 11:30am, Wednesday 09:30am - 11:30am, Thursday 10am-12pm, Friday 09:30am - 11:30am.
