Who we are

Rycroft Leisure Centre is a fully equipped sporting facility, with a gym, 3G and football pitches, badminton, bowling, a private bar, rooms to hire, party facilities and much more in the coming months. They have also been helping with the Covid-19 response with meals on wheels and distributing food


Rycroft Leisure Centre is located on the edge of Barnsley, neighbouring Shafton and Royston.  It has excellent sporting facilities and is the hub of community activities. 

Opening has been hit by the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, but we have responded by helping the local community by cooking homemade meals, Sunday (Sunday Lunch), Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  These are priced at £3.50, with a dessert and can be delivered locally.  We have also been working with local suppliers to use surplus food, distributing hampers to the elderly and vulnerable, helping with shopping and attending appointment alongside the Neighbourly organisation.

As we are hopefully coming out of lockdown, Rycroft Leisure Centre is planning for the future with a new Café in the youth centre and roller skating as well as our usual provision. 

Our facilities are accessible to people with disabilities and we can cover a wide range of physical activities and social groups. Our gym is also available for GP referrals for rehabilitation sessions after heart attacks and after surgery wellness classes.

Anyone interested in using our facilities or joining one of our existing activities or if you would like more information about bookings, etc,  please contact us.
