Sports and Recreation


Opportunities to enjoy and take part in sports, leisure and recreational activities are abundant in the Horsham District whether at one of our superb leisure centres, visitor attractions, or through the many local, active and independant clubs that take place across the District's towns and villages.

There are a number of excellent Leisure Centres across the District, including enough swimming pools to mean that no one is more than a ten minute drive away from a public pool. These centres provide high quality facilities offering activities for all ages, from the under fives to the 50.

Lovers of golf will find some excellent Golf courses including those at Slinfold, Mannings Heath and the public Pay and Play Rookwood Golf Course in Warnham, whilst those who enjoy waterports can try their hand at kayaking, stand-up paddle-boarding and sailing at venues such as at Southwater Country Park, south of Horsham.

If you prefer less formal sports there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy walking, cycling and riding across some of the most beautiful countryside in the Country.  Look for our free and comprehensive guided walks programme and a low cost cycling pack for both on and off-road cycling.

Community leisure activities are well catered for and Horsham District Council's Leisure Link team work hard to help support, create and develop community groups and sports clubs across the District. See details of local sports clubs in the District.

Sports activities for children are well catered for with an extensive range of activities on offer throughout the year and during the school holidays, for both younger children and teenagers.
