About Bolton Arena

Bolton Arena is a trading name for Middlebrook Leisure Trust which is a registered charity.

It is our mission to inspire people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to follow a lifelong passion for sport and healthy lifestyles through the provision of excellent sport & exercise facilities and sports programmes which are accessible to all.

Governed by a board of trustees. Surplus revenues are reinvested into the facility, activities to benefit the local community.

Our Mission Statement

To promote and develop health, wellbeing and more active lifestyles within communities we serve.

Our Aims

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.


With over 1 million visits annually, Bolton Arena’s facilities remain extremely popular with the whole community and second to none in the region.

We remain focussed on maintaining our reputation for providing first-class facilities, together with the development and expansion of our services to meet the changing needs of a diverse population.

This is matched only by our drive to improve quality across all our operational areas and a desire to exceed the highest of customer expectations on each and every visit.

Building an active healthy community

Increasing the opportunities for all sectors of the local community to participate in sport is integral in all that we do.

It’s our belief that a lifelong participation in sport can unlock the benefits of a happy and healthy lifestyle.

That’s why we make it our mission to create programmes that encourage, motivate and inspire children and adults alike to get involved in sport and healthy activity.

Sport & Programmes

At Bolton Arena, we exist to ensure the very best sports, leisure and health opportunities remain within easy and affordable reach of all sections of the local community.

But as a charity that generates 95% of its revenue through fees and charges, we recognise the need to operate along business lines to ensure we can continue to fund this objective.
