Transforming Leisure in West Lancashire

Burscough Sports Development Project


Thank you for viewing the proposal for the refurbishment of Burscough Sports (formerly known as Burscough Racquet and Fitness Centre) and engaging in the vision for the site.

West Lancashire Borough Council has been developing exciting plans for improvements at the facility, working with Development Partner Alliance Leisure. The improvements will lead to modern leisure, wellbeing and fitness facilities to meet the needs of Burscough and surrounding areas.

About the existing facility

First opening in 1975, Burscough Sports offers a comprehensive array of facilities for people of all ages and abilities. The centre includes a gym, a large main hall suitable for badminton and 5-a-side football, squash courts, a large floodlit all-weather 3G pitch, a virtual cycling studio and an area where various exercise classes are held.
