Positive about disabled people

At East Riding Leisure we pride ourselves on providing a top class leisure experience to all, both online and in person. With this in mind we have various facilities and services in place for users with disabilities, to ensure they receive the same level of enjoyment from our facilities as everybody else.

There are many facilities available throughout the whole of the building, as well as some more specific to certain activities. If you feel that you will need assistance on your visit to the leisure complex, we will only be too happy to help. Please call Reception prior to your visit to make arrangements for someone to meet you on arrival.
