The group will also host a football league and dance and game consoles.

Councillor Nick Wallis, the council’s cabinet member for leisure, said: “TheZone is a fantastic new opportunity for young people.

“Darlington had a superb year for adults getting involved in sport in 2013, and TheZone offers something for everyone - we hope to be welcoming lots of new people.”

Prices are £2 on the door, or £1.50 with a Teen Card. Entry including an hour gym access is £2.35.
