Dereham Leisure Centre is a new build sports complex consisting of a 6 lane 25m competition pool, separate teaching pool, four court sports hall, indoor four lane bowling green, healthy living centre and fitness suite.

Situated on the edge of town within a very long thin site, this development maximizes the visual impact of the building with a long glazed and louvered façade to the main approach.

It was completed in 2007 on budget and ahead of programme. The project together with Thetford Leisure Centre was procured through a PFI contract between Parkwood Holdings and Breckland District Council.
