Latrobe Leisure Churchill
By Bronte Hillis Harland.
The Leisure Centre in Churchill was opened forty years ago, extended in 1993 and refurbished in 2011.
Known as Latrobe Leisure Churchill, the centre is a community owned facility which services over 100,000 visits a year – all community members can feel a sense of ownership and staff members are always keen to see new faces.
You will be amazed at the diversity of activities which you can enjoy in the fully equipped gym, which offers twenty-five exercise classes.
Or you could go for a swim in the six-lane indoor 25-metre heated pool which is the deepest indoor pool in the Latrobe area, at 2.6m.
This pool services community swimmers, the Traralgon and Churchill Swim Clubs and the Learn to Swim program - which has been designed by qualified and experienced AUSTSWIM instructors to teach the youngest of our community to enjoy the water safely.
Latrobe Leisure Churchill has been responsible for teaching more than 2000 children to swim.
But if swimming isn’t for you, why not kick back and relax in the heated sauna?
Latrobe Leisure Churchill also offers two squash courts, aerobics and boxing rooms, two international standard multi-use netball and basketball courts and a function room.
You can come to play or you can join one of the sporting teams who call the centre home, including basketball, volleyball and indoor netball clubs.
