Update: 2 December 2020

The national lockdown ended at 12.01am on Wednesday, 2 December.  We are really happy to confirm that the Dolphin Centre and Eastbourne Sports Complex are now open.

Darlington is in Tier 3 which means that most of our services will be available.  The activities and services that are not permitted to take place include:

  • Catering apart from a takeaway service that will be available from 16 Horsemarket
  • Indoor Dry and Wet Classes
  • Indoor group activities and sports

Organised activities for elite athletes, under-18s and disabled people can continue and classes and organised adult sport can take place outdoors, but people are asked to avoid higher-risk contact activity.

We are still waiting for some further clarification around grassroots football at Eastbourne Sports Complex and will share this once we have it.  For information and bookings at Eastbourne please contact the complex direct 01325 405400

Customers can now book online for Dolphin Centre activities, we are really looking forward to welcoming everyone back. Our telephones will be manned from 7.30am-7.30pm weekdays and 8.00am-6.30pm on weekends.

Updates will be available via the website and social media or please email [email protected]

Eastbourne Sports Complex is home to some of Darlington's most successful Sports Clubs. We have a superb eight-lane, county standard, synthetic athletics track, with a full-range of track and field events, floodlighting and athletics equipment, as well as six 11 a side football pitches. Our 3G pitch is specifically designed for use in all weathers and offers support and suspension for the best playing performance.
