Fourteen Venues across Doncaster

Formerly known as Doncaster Dome Leisure Trust, DCLT’s primary role was to manage the day to day operation of the Doncaster Dome Leisure Centre.

After 2 years of discussions and hard work between Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council, Dearne Valley Leisure Trust and DCLT, approval was granted in January 2011 for Doncaster Culture & Leisure Trust to be expanded. From 1st April 2011, the trust now consists of 9 former DMBC managed centres, Dearne Valley Leisure Centre and Rossington Community Sports Village, based on the grounds of Rossington All Saints School.
