Impulse Leisure is a non-profit distributing organisation (NPDO), a charitable company providing leisure and recreation facilities to the local community.


Impulse Leisure, the parent company, manages Adur Community Leisure (ACL) and Thurrock Community Leisure (TCL). Our Clubs include Belhus Park, Blackshots, Corringham, Lancing Manor, Southwick, Wadurs Pool and Chanctonbury offering affordable first class fitness for the whole family.


Our wide range of health, fitness and leisure facilities includes Swimming Pools, Fitness Suites, Group Exercise Studios, Racket Sports, Outdoor Pitches & Courts, Kinesis Studio, Health & Beauty, Sauna, Steam Rooms and Sunbeds. Creches and Childminding Facilities. 18 Hole Golf Course & Country Club at Belhus Park with Driving Range and Golf Shop, Bar, Function Room and Cafè. Our Civic Hall entertainment venue hosts music concerts, shows & events and is available for private hire including weddings. We also have function/ conference rooms together with a full bars & catering service available at a number of our sites.


Impulse Leisure’s facilities are available for use by the entire community, either on a “pay-as-you-play” basis or via our various membership schemes. We offer a range of different membership options with discounts available for over 55s, junior/ youths, students and low income users. Our Platinum health and fitness membership packages allow unlimited use of our Fitness Suites, Group Exercise Classes, Swimming and Health Suites for a fixed monthly fee.


There are approximately 426 staff across all the facilities. Each Leisure Centre has in place a Leisure Manager who is responsible for the running of the centre, working with a team of Duty Officers who are operationally in charge of the Leisure Staff – Leisure Attendants, Fitness Instructors and Cleaners. The Civic Hall is managed in a very similar style with Duty Officers managing Technical Assistants. Management and Administration (including personnel and payroll functions) for all of Impulse Leisure is undertaken from the registered Head Office at Blackshots.


ACL and TCL each have a Board of Trustees (Volunteer Directors) who steer Impulse Leisure in pursuit of our Mission and make sure we comply with the rules of operation that govern charitable companies.
