We exist to ensure you can be healthier and more active so that you can enjoy a happier and more independent life.
As well as our swimming pools and fitness centres, our leisure centres and three community venues in Harrogate and Knaresborough offer a range of other health and wellbeing activities.
It doesn't matter you're just starting your exercise and fitness journey, or you are a keen sportsperson, we have something that will suit all ages and abilities.
Classes are free for Brimhams Active members.
A and Z of activities and classes
From Aquafit to meditation and from Metafit to Zumba, our range of activities will help you achieve your wellness goals whether you are focused on your physical health.
At Brimhams Active we believe everyone should have the chance to take part in sport, whatever their ability. That's why we're dedicated to improving access to sport and physical activity for all disabled people in the district.
Our community centres
We have three community centres across the district: two in Harrogate and one in Knaresborough. All our centres include main halls which we use to run a range of activities. You can also hire our community centres if you want to arrange your own sport, fitness or health and wellbeing activity.

Anyone can volunteer; all you need is passion and some available time (sometimes very little!)
People choose to volunteer for a variety of different reasons; it may be that you'd like an opportunity to give back to your community, make a difference in the lives of others, improve your CV by developing your skills or pay forward a good deed you received. It may be that you want to volunteer for one-off events, help to run a fundraising project, become a trustee or volunteer as a family.
HADCA helps people in the Harrogate district to find volunteering opportunities.

If you have ideas about how to widen participation in sport, fitness or health and wellbeing activities by encouraging new members or improving facilities, we can help. We have a dedicated sports development team. It can offer advice, information or support. We can even help you access funding to pay for specific projects or activities. Take a look at our sports funding page for full details.
