I remember when the Rapids was opened to replace the old Romsey swimming pool (now that was bad!!). Unfortunately the design of the changing rooms and there location hasn't aged well. So people walk in from the outside with filthy shoes all through the changing area plus families take their buggies in. There is also no footbath before or after pool. Tip: the communal changing rooms are cleaner; warmer; with a generally dry floor; nearly always empty.
My young daughter loves the pool as it has stuff to do for her age and is all generally shallow. So great for non swimmers.
I also use the gym..I note another writer moaned about this. I have been a member of nearly all the gyms in the area and bearing in mind it is council run it is pretty damn good. New equipment; lots of space; excellent classes with a mass timetable. Admittedly I am on a corporate membership but there are always offers on. Bearing in mind how much you would pay for David Lloyd!
Summary; great pool for little ones; design needs a rethink/revamp/ brilliant gym facilities.
