Marjon sport and lesiure is old and dated, but is competitive and friendly. The centre has just annonced a rebuild plan, which is needed, On offer is a gym that you can pay as you go or buy a months membership as and when you want, football pitches, sports halls and a swimming pool. Its cheap and easy to join and the staff seem to be really nice and make you feel really welcome
MarJons is a University College and it has fantastic sport and leisure facilities which are, thankfully, open to the public. The prices are very reasonable and the staff are absolutely lovely.
Swimming at MarJons is good, there are always Lifeguards at the pool and they always appear attentive and professional. The pool is a good size and rarely gets overly busy, especially during the summer (non term time) months when the students are away. All the changing rooms and the pool itself are usually clean and lockers are provided (for 20p, which you unfortunately don't get back)
Other sports facilities are also good and well priced, badminton is easy to book (you can book in advance, but i personally have never done this) as they have a nice amount of courts. Also, the squash facilities are fine, though they are completely enclosed by solid walls (as opposed to having a glass wall at the back) which is a shame and can sometimes get slightly claustrophobic.
Generally though, it's a lovely place and well worth the money, only misses out on 5 stars because it's starting to look slightly dated, it could do with a nice make-over.
