Thornaby Pavilion is located at the heart of Thornaby town centre and is a modern, spacious facility that offers a wide variety of activities and services for the whole community. From our modern fitness club and indoor bowls rink to badminton, squash and the Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ TreeTops Nursery, we really do have something for everyone.
Thornaby Pavilion has been serving the local community for over 40 years and really is the beating heart of the town centre. The venue is centred around its spacious and versatile sports hall. This multi-use area is a Badminton centre of excellence and offers activities such as 5-a-side, gymnastics, fitness classes and private functions. Due to its size, the sports hall is also utilised as a count venue for local and general elections.
The Pavilion, as it is known locally, is also home to the much loved, Club 55, an exciting community project that tackles social isolation and promotes health and wellbeing amongst the older generation.

All Tees Active operated venues are DDA compliant and as a service provider, Tees Active not only want to comply with relevant legislation, but also to go further in providing a top quality experience for all visitors.

Since it’s launch in December 2020 Activ8 Live & On Demand has gone from strength to strength!
Following on from the latest government announcement today (Wednesday 30th December) we are deeply saddened to find ourselves in Tier 4 along with the restrictions this brings. It is therefore with regret that all our venues will be closed from tomorrow (Thursday 31st December) and will remain closed until further notice.
We hope you have all been keeping active during this second lockdown and that you and your families are safe and well. Following the government’s announcement and confirmation that our local area will be placed into Tier 3 once lockdown ends, we’d like to outline exactly what that means for each of our activities.
Yesterday’s government announcement really wasn’t the news any of us wanted to hear, or were expecting, and unfortunately the new restrictions mean our centres will close from Thursday 5th November
