ELDON LEISURE opened its doors in 1976 where it has seen the likes of the magnificent Muhammad Ali in the ring, Snooker championships, the filming of earliest   daytime tv shows was in Eldon!

Sporting competitions, such as Squash ,Aerobics ,Bodybuilding  and MMA ! Our gym always had famous actors popping in to train before appearing at the Theatre royal and even the Royal Northern Sinfonia performing 'The Snowman' with the lovely Bernard Cribbins narrating the story. All done in out main hall! And who can remember the the weekend craft fare..bustling with the locals selling their goods. Our Tea dance that sees our customers sparkle around the hall dance floor, a truly nostalgic sight that is still popular to this day, a truly fabulous centre.Eldon Leisure the ❤ heart of Eldon Square!

Eldon leisure has facilities that are essential to the community, essential for all ages, essential for our physical health. essential for our  mental health ..ESSENTIAL FOR NEWCASTLE

We have Soft play, SEN sessions. Children's parties, Vertigo climbing wall, Boldering climbing wall, ten pin bowling for all of the family., cafe and bar. Our fantastic  specialist gym facilities spread over 3 huge rooms, our class timetable, squash courts badminton courts., football leagues  all there in the heart of the city centre.

We CAN NOT let this building become derelict, become a building that will be defaced, a building that will undoubtedly and ultimately  become an unused eyesore  affecting  the wonderful aesthetics of Newcastle .

I am asking all of you to look at what is being taken away, from us and our families.I am asking you to sign this petition..to contact GLL and your local MP, to contact Newcastle city council, local newspapers..we can't let our doors permanently close.

As a member of staff for 23 years and some still there after 30+ years and seen all the great things hosted. i can speak on behalf of all my colleagues, past and present, we just can't let this happen we are saddened and in shock at this decision, we would do everything in our power to make this work and we know WE CAN even in these unforseen circumstances, given a chance WE CAN!

So please, with your help and your signatures, your voices!!  let's do this, let's get the Eldon leisure doors opened and continue the history of this wonderful centre in a wonderful city.
