King Alfred Sports Centre closure

1610 have made the difficult decision to close King Alfred Sports Centre on the 15th January 2023 and hand back the facility to the school.

Since reopening after the pandemic, the centre has not seen the same level of business return. Daytime access to the centre is also now more difficult as the facility sits in the heart of a school site

With the increasing operational costs, drop in business and daytime access difficulties, 1610 are no longer able to make it a viable business or sustain the increasing costs and losses the Sports Centre is now making.

1610 will close the facility to the public on the 15th January and hand it back to the school from the 31st January to enable them to use the sports facilities for curriculum use.

All direct debits will be cancelled from the 16th December, the centre can then be accessed on a pay as you go basis.

For anyone who is due a refund, including annual members, we will process these throughout December.

If you have any questions, please email

We would like to thank you for your support over the years., 1610 have operated the centre since 2009 and have enjoyed offering community sports, leisure and wellbeing to the Burnham and Highbridge area
