This is the third time me and my kids got turned away from swimming. It’s pathetic that a brand new sports centre is unable to get to grips with its staff rota. Apparently they can only allow so many people in the pools, however I...More

This place did not inspire me at all. The staff are rude, they never answer the phone and the lifeguards are left on poolside much longer than is recommended by the RLSS
