This is a great facility for everyone to enjoy. Both inside and outside. So much going on, swimming, cycling. All ball sports, gym. It was badly damaged during the recent floods but the refurb is going well . This is a great asset to the people of IOM a large facility very well equipped and staffed.

We all loved this swimming pool and had a great time. I totally agree with an earlier reviewer in that this is probably one of the best sports facilities we have ever used. The staff were friendly and their supervision of the pool excellent. The various pools allow enjoyment for differing age groups whilst the slides and water fountains are... More

This is probably one of the best sports facilities that I have ever used. It caters for pretty much every sport you can think off and does it very well.

Fantastic facility- great fun for all the family. Kept our 5 kids (4-13) all entertained. Choice of pools and slides. Brilliant rainy day option- not too crowded either considering we went on a Sunday morning. Check in advance that all pools are open. Good changing and shower facilities (although 3 showers not working!). Reasonable value, especially compared to cost of... More

This was ideal for the youngest member of our family group. She was only allowed a half hour time slot but she made the most of it and it was superb value for money.

A good sized swimming pool, however on both occasions that I have been this week, the tiles and walls in the pools are in dire need of cleaning; there is a lot of green muck in the pools.

The National Sports Centre has an excellent running track [if you are into that sort of thing]. I enjoy the Gym and sw2imming there. There is an excellent café there selling reasonably priced snacks

Excellent facility for all ages, children, families and everyone, great staff and very tidy at all times. Pool area is amazing with kind staff and the whole place is buzzing any time of the day. Very reasonably priced too, I am a fan now.
