Every Sunday, from 16-18 I'm here doing roller derby.
I don't know much about the rest of the building but I am well pleased with the sports hall we train in.
I'm gonna copy paste some of the activities they offer:
(My league has a contract with these guys and they rent out half of the sports hall for us.)
Badminton, children's Birthday Parties, dance Classes, group exercise classes, gym and weights, indoor 5-a-side football, indoor basketball, indoor cycling, indoor netball, indoor volleyball, jubilee Park 9 hole golf course, no Strings, Badminton, personal Training, pilates, pool based classes, primetime activities, school holiday activities, softplay, swim School, swimFit, swimming, swimming lessons for adults, yoga, zumba classes etc.
It also has a cafe- with yummy slushies; a creche and....a fairly big adventure playground for kids.
The water in the drinking fountains is cold and crisp, they have some sofas in the hallways -so you can either sleep or take a breather while watching people swim downstairs in the swimming pool. The toilets are clean but a bit smelly...and the changing rooms are big and spacious. Lots of mirrors and blow dryers.
The staff is nice and friendly. They get our hall ready always in time and and they are prepared when it comes to first aid.
So if you're in the neighbourhood and fancy playing some indoor badminton, I suggest give it a try.
We got invited to a swimming birthday party here. Having never been here before we turned up open minded and hoped for a good time.
unfortunately it turned out to be a dire experience. As you would expect from a leisure centre when you enter the building you have to check in at the reception. We politely waited to be served and eventually had to ask if we could enter as being polite was clearly getting us nowhere. The miserable, uninterested and unprofessional tone that we were met with pretty much summed up all of the staff that I came across.
The decor was a little shabby and run down but nothing drastic. My main issues are with the staff.
There's no dedicated car park but there is a multi story car park within walking distance.
Believe me when I say I'm really not a complainer. I'll turn the other cheek and ignore shoddy service more than most people I know. But this leisure centre was something else.
I can tell you now, I'll never set foot in this building again.
Edmonton Leisure Centre has recently been knocked down and rebuilt and this review is based on the brand new leisure centre opposite the train station.
You walk in through big glass doors and the building looks like a tower block. From the outside you see people working out on their gym equipment on the second floor but imagining what it must be like to look out accross Edmonton and watch the world go by.
Through the turnstiles and things get confusing, a sign for the poool sends you left but the changing rooms are on the right. Inside the changing room is unisex but large with hundreds of cubicles and there are seperate girls and boys room within the maze of cubicles and lockers. Finding the pool is another marathon but once inside all is forgiven. There is a 25m pool and a smaller pool - the two seperated by perspex which has blinds in between it and the smaller pool has a moveable floor. There are 2 water slides and a very small pool with an elephant slide for the tiny bubbas.
Water is warm in teh smaller pools for the little ones, and slightly cold in the bigger pool as it should be as your meant to be exercising and warming your body.
