An all encompassing leisure centre with a new multi million pound pool area. They cater for pretty much every indoor sport / activity including squash, badminton, tennis, trampolining etc with all the classes you'd expect.
They have 4 excellent gym areas, the Shokk (under 18s), private gym used for exercise on referral etc, the weightlifting and the lifestyle gym (state of the art equipment set over 2 floors- membership induction needed )
The pool area is a full size main pool plus a learner pool that has a suspended floor so the depth can be varied. A full range of swimming classes are available for adults as well as kids and of course Derwentside Simming Club is based here too for the more competitive or serious swimmer.
The only let down is the bar / cafe area - there is a small soft play area - only really suitable for under 6 yrs - which now looks very tired and dated although the food is good and reasonably priced.
The staff are all friendly and are happy to give advice on anything.
