Excellent gym, well equipped and easy to access.

A friendly, well equipped gym. The staff were friendly and helpful, there was plenty of equipment available, the changing rooms were spacious, and parking was easy. Being able to use the pool as well for that price makes it very reasonable.

I would definitely recommend the Sports Centre as the opening times are great for 9-5’ers and the pool has great availability for people who want to lane swim compared to many pools I have used.

Really good swim – best time is after 7pm when the crowds thin out a bit and you basically can have a lane to yourself. Lush
