A bit about us

Bolton Arena entrance

Bolton Arena Sports Village has been at the heart of the community for more than 20 years, inspiring people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, disabilities, and health conditions to pursue a passion for sport, and active, healthy lifestyles.

More than 1.2 million visitors are welcomed through our doors every year to take advantage of our excellent exercise, sporting and business facilities, health and wellbeing programmes and a range of classes that have something for everyone – making us Bolton’s best loved sporting, events and entertainment venue.

Everything we do is delivered by highly professional, friendly, helpful staff in an open and welcoming environment. We apply those same values to our events, hospitality and office spaces to ensure our facilities offer solutions tailored to the needs of our clients.

We recently celebrated our 20-year milestone which was centred on our members, staff and valued partners, paying tribute to those who have been with us on our journey so far. Our passion is there for all to see as we promote health and wellbeing for many more decades to come!

Our mission & aims

Our mission is to promote and develop health, wellbeing and more active lifestyles within communities we serve.

Our overarching aim is to provide the local community with affordable access to the highest standard of facilities so that sport or healthy activities are within reach of people of all ages, ability and social or economic backgrounds.

In pursuit of this goal, our strategy must be aligned with broader leisure, health and community strategies.

Never losing sight of our leisure, health and social objectives for the local community.
