Took granddaughters ( 5,7) and grandson(13) on a damp Wednesday. Two adults and three kids for less than £15. Had a great time. Elder kids loved the plumes and climbing on the floaty things while junior doggy paddled round the shallows which had several fountains and things to keep her amused. Good changing facilities and clean , well maintained everywhere.

For an Island with a population of only 85, 000 (approx.), it is incredible to see the number of excellent facilities throughout the Island for those who wish to exercise for pleasure or more seriously.

The NSC is the pride and supplier of sporting and recreational sporting facilities on the Isle of Man. From a welcoming smile on reception to a superb range catering for almost every sport this is a facility certainly for the young and sporty, family and toddlers and young at heart. A great sporting venue with great staffing.

I have started swimming regularly at the NSC recently, to improve my awful level of fitness a bit. The changing facilities are clean and tidy, and all the lockers I have tried so far actually work, which is something I haven't always found at other pools in the past. The shower area could do with a deep clean, as there... More
