Harwich Sport Centre

If you like racket sports, you’ll love Harwich Sports Centre! Easily accessible by public transport and with free on-site parking, this multipurpose facility is shared by the local community and Harwich and Dovercourt High School, and as such it offers a wide range of activities with something for all age groups and abilities.

Racquet Sports & More

Whether you’re a seasoned squash player or a beginner in badminton, Harwich is the place to be. Pay and Play sessions are available throughout the week for a variety of racket sports including tennis, short tennis, table tennis, racketball and squash, and between April and September you can also hire our whole hard-court area – ideal for group tennis tournaments!

Our regular Pilates and Yoga classes are great for enhancing your core strength and mobility, which can not only improve your performance on the court but reduce your chances of injury and boost your overall well-being. Looking for something new for the children to try? 

Our junior courses in beginners’ squash could be right up their street. Or perhaps they’d love to improve their soccer skills? Our weekly sessions run by Colchester United FC are perfect for football fanatics.

Whatever they’re into, Harwich Sports Centre will keep the kids active and entertained, both in term time and through the school holidays.

Facilities & Activities

Sports Hall

Our multipurpose sports hall is the hub of the centre, providing a spacious setting for a wide range of activities.

Four badminton courts, a cricket net and a table-tennis table are all available for hire (along with equipment, if needed) on a pay-and-play basis, and you can even book the entire hall for a game of indoor five-a-side. If you feel like getting a little competitive, our table tennis league welcomes new players aged 16+.

Children aged 10 to 17 can take advantage of our Youth Zone, a multi-use goal area that is free to use. During term time we run a Soccer Skills course for primary-aged children, while in the school holidays our sports hall becomes a super-fun Holiday Club, offering a wide range of activities for children aged five and upwards.

Regular Pilates and yoga classes also take place in the sports hall. Led by qualified and friendly instructors, these energising sessions are perfect for anyone looking to build core strength and mobility.

Our sports hall also makes an ideal venue for kids’ birthday parties. We can supply a bouncy castle or softplay equipment for younger children (under 1.2 metres) or provide a football party for children aged six and above.

Squash Courts

The centre features one glass-backed and one closed-in squash court, both of which are available to hire as part of our monthly-membership package or on a pay-and-play basis for those who play less frequently.

We host squash and racketball leagues and tournaments throughout the year, alongside beginner and intermediate squash courses for juniors (aged 5+), which run in term time and can be booked on a half-termly basis.

Adults who are keen to learn new skills can join our weekly racketball class, an 80-minute session that welcomes all abilities and is a fantastic way to meet new people while improving your performance on the court.
