GO Sport in Brighton

Sport in Brighton There’s no excuse for sitting idle while you're in the city-on-the-sea as Brighton has a wealth of sports facilities where you can have fun and get fit.

Whether you’re into footy, rugby, swimming, running or even chess, there’s a sporting venue here with your name on it (well, not literally, but you know what we mean!)

The city is home to two swimming complexes and a leisure centre with swimming pool, so if you fancy a dip in the pool, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Prince Regent Swimming Complex [map]
has four pools offering swimming for all ages and abilities, along with some great water slides. There is also a new fitness suite with the latest hi-tech equipment. St Luke’s Pool [map], on the other hand, is a small indoor teaching and training pool offering early morning swimming, lessons, special sessions and fitness workouts.

Brighton and Hove City Council’s largest indoor sports centre, the King Alfred Leisure Centre [map] also has a pool that is available for a leisurely swim. There is also a wide range of dry indoor sports facilities here with two multi-purpose sports halls, which offer opportunities for five-a-side football, badminton, volleyball, basketball and table tennis. For those who aim high why not have a go at trampolining at the King Alfred Leisure Centre, which offers hour-long sessions on Saturdays for both kids and adults. You can also make use of the fitness suite here for your exercise needs.

Brighton and Hove’s other three leisure centres are referred to as ‘dry’ centres as they do not have swimming facilities but they still offer plenty of keep fit opportunities. An example is Stanley Deason Leisure Centre [map], which has a multi-purpose sports hall, gym, squash courts and two all-weather football/hockey pitches.

Withdean Sports Complex [map] is a versatile arena that plays host to athletics, league football, American football, tennis, squash, and dancing. While Moulsecoomb Community Leisure Centre [map] has a multi-purpose sports hall and fitness/weights room, along with a function room and lounge bar.

For the ladies there is plenty of opportunity to get involved in netball, and even train for the England team, or take up running with the Brighton and Hove Running Sisters, a women-only group based in the city.

If you prefer to watch other people working up a sweat then there are plenty of venues around the city where you can be a spectator such Sussex Country Cricket Club [map], who play in the top flight, or Brighton Hove Albion Football Club [map], who play in the Coca-Cola Championship.

Both Brighton and Hove also have their own rugby teams, and there are a number of golf courses in and around the city centre, including Hollingbury Golf Course [map], an 18-hole championship course, with a Pro shop, café and bar.
