This leisure has everything you could need and at a reasonable price. Membership of all activities comes at £35 a month. The sorroundings have been recently refurbished save for the pool. the pool is very big and has a seperate area for kids and for babies. price is very fair at £1/2 for kids and £3 for adults. there is also a play gym for 3-8 year olds available and a cafe where food is served.
Tottenham Green Leisure Centre to my mind has been a pretty poor option for serious swimmers over the years. There only ever seemed to be 1 lane available for non-casual swimmers i.e. people who actually want to swim for fitness gain, as opposed to kids who want to splash each other, shout, and generally annoy the people who have paid the full cost to get into the pool.
A little anecdote that I should relate regarding the pool. A friend was was warned by another swimmer to be careful to check all their clothing and bags when leaving the pool.
The problem is not as one might immediately think, of light fingered scallywags helping themselves to the personal property of others, although I am sure that may go on. The issue is that the pool changing rooms are infested with cockroaches that, if you are unlucky, will attach themselves to your person. At some point of course they will decamp, possibly to infest your home or workplace.
So having learnt this I have decided not to start visiting the pool again. A shame as I pay a ton of council tax, as do others in the borough. Shame on the management of the centre, who collect their secure salaries every month, whilst accruing index-linked pension benefits for a comfortable retirement, yet are not bothered enough to deal with what is very likely a fairly easily solved pest control problem. Shame on them, sack them all.
Tottenham Green Leisure Centre is quite large, holding classes of all types, wet and dry. Travelling here is easy by bus, as there is a bus depot a few minutes walk away from it, and it is within walking distance from Seven Sisters tube.
The car park is cheap, and small.
I n recent years, I have only ever used the modern gym that they have, with sauna and steam room, and the swimming pool. They really do cater for everyone as on Saturday afternoons, they have a fun and waves session in the pool, where you will find kids galore having a great time. There is a small water shoot for the kids too, so they love it. For the adults, they have Aerobics classes, and also have a separate pool for diving, where the floor gets deeper by the touch of a button.
As for facilities, they have squash, table tennis, badminton and basketball and I must be forgetting something. They have a fitness hall for all classes, where they have Martial Art, keep fit etc. It is a well kept fitness centre.
They do have a membership which is definitely cheaper than most, and also allows you to use other facilities in the Harringay Borough. I haven't been for a long while, I drove past it a couple of days ago and said what I usually say, 'Oh yeah, I got to renew my membership'.
Oh yes, one of those thing which I forgot to add, is that they also have a library, you see, they really do cater for everybody!
Okay leisure centre, has what you need including a pool but it's hardly flash. Fine if you're a local but you'd never travel out of your way for it.
Great staff very freindly and eager to help. They have a wealth of classes to entertain every level of fitness and experience. Also a fantasic in terms of price, all in all a great place to work out
I'm a returning customer of the Tottenham Green Leisure Centre as it offers a good location for the price and I've always found the staff helpful.
