About Yorebridge Sports & Fitness

Yorebridge Sport and Fitness is owned, managed and operated by Yorebridge Sports Development Association Ltd., company no. 5493687, registered in England and Wales

Based at Askrigg in the Yorkshire Dales, YSF was conceived in 1998 and is built on land leased from the Yorebridge Educational Foundation, who ensure the activities taking place have an educational purpose. The Yorebridge Sports Development Association (YSDA), a local community group, led the fundraising drive and raised £200,000.

The development was part-funded by Sport England and the Big Lottery Fund, working in partnership on the £108.5 million Active England programme, which will drive forward grassroots participation in sport and physical activity. 

The multi use games area ( MUGA) opened in October 2005 and offers a versatile floodlit outdoor area for tennis, football, basketball and much more providing: 
  • Two five-aside football pitches with dividing net
  • An eight- a-side football pitch
  • Two tennis courts, with dividing net
  • Netball
  • Two recreational basketball baskets for shooting practice
We have a quality indoor gym and fitness facilities which were subsequently developed and opened in November 2006.

The Gym Suite hosts a range of specialist equipment designed to give a full body work out, specifically aimed at increasing fitness levels and toning the body.  Cardio-vascular equipment includes treadmills, cross trainers, cycling and rowing machines.  Resistance equipment, a selection of weight stations, free weights, gym balls, steps, boxing bags, resistance tubes, skipping ropes, trampolines and an ever increasing choice of items to keep your workouts varied.

The Fitness Studio comes complete with sprung floor, full length mirrors, dance bars and sound system. A programme of Fitness and Dance classes such as gentle exercise, aerobics and circuit training are available throughout the year and cater for all ages and abilities. You can also change in our individual shower rooms and unwind with a relaxing drink from our cafe area.
