Whether it’s taking part in competitive sport, visiting your local leisure centre or enjoying a walk in the countryside, it’s easy to get active in Thurrock.
To thank our teaching community, Thurrock Council have recently partnered with Impulse Leisure to offer all teachers and teaching assistants in the Thurrock borough with a 15% discount to Impulse Leisure gyms including Belhus Park, Blackshots and Corringham. The package includes access to more than 140 classes a week, three swimming pools, a golf course, three modern fitness suites and a free gym induction.
Thurrock also enjoys a wealth of golf clubs including Langdon Hills Golf Country Club & Hotel and Orsett Golf Club.
There are plenty of sports teams to watch and support in Thurrock, including the Thurrock Rugby Football club and Grays Athletic, and large sporting venues, such as Twickenham and Wembley, are only a short distance away.
Thurrock also offers unusual sports teams to follow or get involved with; for example, why not support the Thurrock Volleyball Club or the local speedway team, The Lakeside Hammers.
The area has produced several champions of sport including former English rugby union footballer and Sky Sports commentator, Stuart Barnes; English professional footballer, Christopher Cohen, and former Paralympic world record holder, Daniel Brian Crates.
