About the Centre

Located in the heart of the village, Life Leisure Marple has facilities and activities for all the family.

Updated Statement on Marple Pool: 17th October 2018

Marple Pool has been temporarily closed since 13th March 2018 due to problems with the pool filtration systems and pool fabric.

The Council is continuing the work on the feasibility of providing new leisure and community facilities in Marple following temporary closure of the pool earlier this year.   

This work is looking at how we can develop new multi-purpose facilities which will meet the current and future needs of the residents of Marple. It includes assessing the scale of need, the demand in the local area, the costs and the viability of any new provision, based on modern facilities.

We are also keen to build a strong partnership with Sport England and Swim England to maximise any funding opportunities.

We recognise and welcome the active local interest in this project and expect to share the first stage of this feasibility work once it is complete later this Autumn. At that stage we will aim to speak to relevant interest groups and other stakeholders during November to guide us towards a further update by the end of the year.

In the meantime, the gym facility at the site remains open to local residents. Alternative swimming facilities are available at Romiley, Hazel Grove, Avondale and Grand Central. The Council recognises that the current closure of Marple Pool has had an impact on capacity at Life Leisure Romiley and will be working with Life Leisure and users to do our best to accommodate temporary users.

The Council has set up an e-mail address to answer any queries users and local residents may have about the facility. The address is
