Important Update for Haden Hill Leisure Centre Customers

Important Update for Haden Hill Leisure Centre Customers

Sandwell Council have now confirmed that they have received formal approval for an exciting redevelopment of Haden Hill Leisure Centre which will include a partial rebuild and partial refurbishment of facilities, with an expected reopen date of October 2026. 

We would like to inform you that Haden Hill Leisure Centre’s last day of operation for the public will be Thursday 28th March, closing at 8pm, prior to the Easter Bank Holiday period. We want to thank all our staff and users for their support and patience during this time and although this is a sad moment to close the doors at the much-loved Haden Hill, we also can look forward to an exciting, redeveloped leisure facility.

Fitness classes have already transferred to Portway Lifestyle Centre with additional classes and an exciting programme now available for members every day. 

So, what happens to my membership now?
Many Haden Hill Leisure Centre members have already transferred to Portway Lifestyle Centre ahead of this redevelopment. All remaining memberships will be transferred automatically after 28th March to the preferred site used, so there is no further action required to access other facilities from this date.   If you have any other questions about your membership or would prefer to transfer to another local SLT centre, then please contact our memberships team at 

Where is the nearest sauna steam provision?
We have alternative sauna steam facilities at Sandwell Aquatics Centre located in Smethwick, please visit our or download the SLT app for activity times, booking and availability. 

When can we find out more about the new centre?
We will provide updates on our website and social channels and through our newsletter, ‘Lets Get Physical’ as the scheme progresses. We will also provide and update an FAQ area providing further information. For any other questions or concerns, please get in touch at and a member of the team will get back to you as quickly as possible to help.
