Hub of WYZ

The Rec is the main area at the heart of Wigan Youth Zone and is a hive of activity every day of the week. There are many different areas including the atrium – the up and active area – the TV area, pool tables, and a dance zone. We also have sports, for example Badminton, which you can jump into if you’re feeling competitive or just want to give it a go!

Each week is different in the Rec – we love themes and have a new one every week! Whether it’s World Cup Mania, circus weekends or army themed, there’s always a fun vibe and tons of great stuff for kids to do. Check out our themes for the next 3 months here.

The Rec is also a great way to introduce new members as they can join in with whatever they fancy and there’s always plenty of friendly staff to sit down and have a chat with, play chess or table football.
