    First to Review

    As a general leisure centre this one in Clapham isn't bad but it really isn't great either.  You don't have to be a member to enter though they will always try to make you one.  I wouldn't bother personally but it depends what you are using it for.

    I personally went for the swimming pool but found it to be quite filthy and i once felt terribly ill after using it and so never went back.  Whether it was the pools fault or not i don't care, i'd rather trek uptown to Oasis and take advantage of their larger cleaner pool.  

    The changing rooms are terrible whilst the gym was actually okay.  Lots of machines and staff on hand to help out.  As a cheaper alternative to the expensive chains or for those that can only train infrequently  it may be of interest but for the dedicated trainer i'd choose the soho gym up the road.

    Lovely new building, such a shame about persistently dirty floors in the showers and changing rooms. Don't forget your flip-flops when you go!

    It is long and deep enough for good swimming session. Swimming is the best sport ever because there is no chance of injury. Oh also the temperature is perfect for sport activities.

    This couldn't be more of a bog-standard council swimming pool if it tried. Hand over your £3, get changed in the changing rooms doing your best to avoid varrucas, pop your pound in the locker, and tiptoe your way along the cold floor to the pool.

    The water is usually about 5-degrees colder than is comfortable, but that just makes you swim harder. It's a standard 25m pool, with lanes usually marked out, but check the opening times first to make sure there's no classes or aerobics on.

    Does other things too, like judo and pottery and stuff!

    While it is not the most modern facility in town it definitely presents a great opportunity for everyone who enjoys swimming not only because of its proper length and dept but because the price is right as well. Personally for me the water being a little bit colder in comparison to other pools is a plus since it makes you keep your pace up.

    This pool is a throwback surely. I used to go to more modern swimming pools 20 years ago! Its cold too. At least it isn't very busy and it isn't very expensive.

    The old building has now been demolished and a new modern looking one has arisen, I haven't been inside, but I thought you may like to see the new building design. I prefer the old facade.

    This is what the new building looks like. Very plain and no character. Hope the inside is better.

    I've been swimming here pretty much every day since 1984. I'd be lost without it. Sure - it's old-fashioned, no frills, a bit of a throw-back. But the length is great - it's not over-heated (which is great for the serious swimmer); and it's a reasonable price
