Newmarket Leisure Centre has closed for the weekend after a group of travellers parked up on its site.
The Exning Road centre announced the closure to customers in a statement on Facebook after caravans arrived in its car park.
Pre-booked sessions have been cancelled and customers will be contacted for a refund.
The Abbeycroft Leisure-managed centre is set to reopen on Monday.
The leisure centre said: "We will be contacting our customers over the weekend who have pre-paid activities for this weekend to rebook or provide a credit.
"We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience and disappointment caused but the safety of our customers and staff remains our top priority."
