Racquet Sports

Racquet sports are widely accessible from young children to older adults and are one of only a few sports where men and woman can play together, making them extremely social with couples, friends and family. You can hire equipment and enjoy playing Table Tennis, Badminton and Squash across our leisure centres.


Billingham Forum
Thornaby Pavilion

This fast paced game will keep you on your toes and is a great way to stay healthy and active. As with most racquet sports, Squash can really help to improve co-ordination, balance and stamina.

Badminton is a great game suitable from 2 to 4 players. It is a very sociable sport and provides a great workout. Thornaby Pavilion is championed as a centre for badminton excellence which offers a specialist floor called ‘Taraflex’ to keep its facilities first class.

Table Tennis

IB Leisure

Similarly to Badminton, Table Tennis can be played with 2 to 4 players and can be enjoyed by anyone. When played at a high level it is one of the fastest sports around, but you don’t have to be a pro to still get a good workout! The sport is gentle on your body and extremely good for your movement and co-ordination, so why not hire a table and start to improve your skills!

“The facilities at Thornaby Pavilion are fantastic, always clean and the staff are very friendly
