Melbourn Sports Centre is a non-profit organisation devoted in making a difference to the community.

With this in mind, we are inviting you to join up to our Aqua-fit marathon motivating yourself and others to get fit, have fun, and to help raise valuable funds towards our repairs!
Minimum Entrance Fee £5.00 but feel free to donate more if you wish!
All Proceeds will be going towards the repair of our Swimming pool.
