The 6 lane swimming pool and heated learner pool, provides the perfect setting for all the family to come and enjoy a water based activity from casual swimming, swimming lessons, birthday parties and aqua classes.

For the younger members of the family, our memberships starts from 12 years of age, so teenagers can de-stress or burn off some energy after school in the gym. We run junior sports courses including water polo and trampolining, plus birthday party packages to come and celebrate their big day.

The artificial grass pitches can be booked on a pay and play basis ideal for friends, work colleagues or local clubs to come and enjoy a game of football. Or if you want to come regularly we offer discounts if you block book the space.
