Worthing Leisure Centre’s 50th Birthday

A fabulous Saturday, 2nd July of fun is promised at Worthing Leisure Centre which marks its 50th anniversary this summer.

The centre, which opened its doors back in 1972, is hosting an open day on Saturday, 2nd July to which everyone is invited to share in the celebrations.

Along with the more traditional activities such as gym, weights room, racket sports, running track and football sessions on the 3G pitches, visitors can have a go at something more unusual, such as Retro Fitness Fiesta – where you can try your favourite classes in the rhythm of crazy 70s and 80s disco and rock music.

Children’s activities include a special magician appearance, sensory room for the youngest and Amazon Adventure and giant inflatable bouncy castle, promising something for everyone.

Also, our sales team has prepared a special anniversary FIT4 offer for those who want to start their fitness adventure with us.

Let’s get the party going!

Sunday 3rd july



Come and join Henry Ainsley aka “The Bearded Runner” run a marathon around the track at Worthing Leisure Centre on Sunday 3rd July from 09:00.

Dig the trainers out and come and support Henry.  You can run a lap or a few or even the whole way, whatever you can do.  

This is going to be a fantastic event, so please support in any way you can.


Henry Ainsley aka ‘The Bearded Runner’ was born in 1972 and raised in Halifax, a small town in Yorkshire located in the north of England.

Henry has always been a natural athlete, he was the schoolboy running champion and played football for Mixenden United.

Within the space of a year, Henry had lost his brother, uncle and close friend all to suicide. Henry, fell into a deep depression, not liking himself, not sleeping, not eating, into a cycle of self-abuse and was suffering from survivors’ guilt. It was easier for Henry to take his own life rather than fight the big black cloud of darkness that was cast over him.

Henry began to do dry runs to take his own life and on one occasion he drove to a road where the lorries speed past and went to drive in front of one. He heard his son’s voice saying “don’t do it”. He went home alone, put some trainers on, started running and the rest, as they say, is history.
