Leisure Centre

Gillingham has a wonderful leisure centre known as the RiversMeet Centre. RiversMeet has a competition standard 25-metre, 6-lane swimming pool, extensive changing facilities, an enlarged sports hall big enough to accommodate four badminton courts and a great gym and fitness suite. It also has multi-purpose rooms suitable for activities such as T'ai Chi, Karate and dance as well as meetings and business events.

The Centre was built with a tremendous level of community support for the two-year refurbishment and re-modelling programme. Work started when North Dorset District Council released £4 million of funds to the Three Rivers Partnership in December 2008 and was completed in summer 2010.

The Gillingham Community and Leisure Trust Ltd operates the facility, which uniquely is owned and managed by the community it serves, on behalf of the Community as a "not for profit" social enterprise.
