Sport & Fitness

Peterborough has a wide range of different sports, fitness facilities and clubs to choose from.

Many of Peterborough’s sports and leisure facilities are run by the charity Vivacity. It manages six leisure centres across Peterborough with a great range of swimming, gym and class memberships in the City Centre, Orton, Werrington, Netherton and Hampton as well as Vivacity Premier Fitness. The city is also home to other gym and fitness centres such as Virgin Active and Bannatyne Health Club’s and truGym, as well as being one of the only cities in the UK to have a working (heated!) outdoor swimming pool – The Lido.


For sporty types, Peterborough offers ten golf courses within a 20 mile radius as well as a variety of local sporting teams to try out for including rugby, football, netball and hockey. It also has an American football team, a roller derby team and an ice hockey team. Tennis courts and bowls clubs can be hired at the city’s two major parks – Central Park and Itter Park.

In October the city hosts one of the premier half marathons in the UK, the Perkins Great Eastern Run. Renowned as one of the fastest courses the route is ideal for those looking to set a personal best. For the less seasoned runners there’s the 5km Anna’s Hope Fun Run.

It is also a great place to watch a diverse range of sport. Peterborough United Football Club plays at the ABAX Stadium in the heart of the city centre and is a successful professional football club competing in League One. Peterborough is one of the only places in the UK to have both a Speedway and Ice Hockey team and also hosts Greyhound Racing every week.
