About the Centre

Customer notice: As part of the extensive investment into Life Leisure Avondale by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, the pool at lifeLEISURE Avondale will be closed from Monday 9th August - Friday 13th August (inclusive) to enable essential work to be carried out on the roof.

It is expected that the pool will be re-opened and ready to go for Saturday 14th August (however this is dependent on the weather as rain can delay the process). During this time, if your membership includes access to swimming, you can book swimming at any other lifeLEISURE centre. 

Communications will be sent out to all swimming lesson customers to inform of any changes as a result.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Following the latest announcement from UK Government, we’ve increased capacities on all activities from Monday 19th July. We will be making gradual changes over the next few months to ease us back into 'normality' as safely as possible. View our updated roadmap here.
