About Us

Owned by Great Aycliffe Town Council, the Sports Complex was opened on 31st May 1978 by HRH Prince of Wales.  It was rebranded in 1990 and renamed the Oakleaf Sports Complex, continuing to serve those living and working in Newton Aycliffe and the surrounding area.

The Town’s name is thought to derive from the ancient  oak forests which were abundant in the area, and thus gave title to the ‘Oakleaf’ Sports Complex.

We are a friendly, family orientated facility promising quality facilities and activities in a clean, warm and safe environment.  There is a wide range of sports activities provided for users of all ages and abilities starting at the ‘taster’ stage for complete novices right up to adult leagues.

We have a computerised system for recording memberships which we hope improves our service to you.

Our Service Plan. provides more information regarding our work at the Oakleaf Sports Complex.
