Active Tameside is a registered charity, which means our fundamental purpose is to deliver public benefit and address inequalities. In keeping with this, all our surplus revenue is reinvested into our services. We deliver a wide range of leisure facility and community-based services that generate participation in physical activity and sport, to improve health and wellbeing, predominantly in the Tameside area but also with our partners across Greater Manchester.
We provide high quality gyms, swimming pools and leisure attractions that are accessible to everyone. We currently operate seven fitness centres, including our new state of the art 24/7 iTrain gym; five swimming pools and four leisure attractions – Total Adrenaline, Sky High Adventure, Hyde Leisure Pool and iPlay Zone.
Active Tameside is the operating name of Tameside Sports Trust, established in 1999. We have a Board of 11 voluntary Trustees or Directors; each Director provides unique expertise and experience to help run our business.
Active Tameside is a proud member organisation of GM Active. GM Active makes it possible for communities across Greater Manchester to be physically active through bringing together all thirteen leisure organisations across the city region.
We aim to be the ‘go-to’ organisation to conquer inactivity and improve healthy life expectancy.
We source and use resources and evidence to design, develop and provide high quality, leading-edge, value for money leisure, sport, physical activity and wellbeing services that empower people of any age or ability to be physically active, live well and feel great.
