Swimming is great at any age.  Whether you want to improve your technique, get fit, meet new friends, compete or have fun, you're sure to find a pool session that you'll love.

This new facility has two impressive pools. One 25m, 8 lane swimming pool, suitable for everything from swimming lessons, play sessions and regional competitions and a 17m x 8m state-of-the-art studio pool with moveable floor offering the ability to offer sessions requiring differing depths from baby and toddler sessions to aqua classes.


Our fully equipped, air-conditioned gym offers a range of fitness equipment for everyone. Our members can choose from cardiovascular machines such as treadmills and rowers, resistance equipment including free weights and dedicated stretching areas and fitness aids such as Swiss balls.

For a fitness programme tailored to your needs, just ask a Better fitness instructor and they'll be happy to put together a workout to suit you and follow up with a complimentary re-focus session.

Personal Training

Our personal trainers provide exercise programmes for all areas of general fitness, and are there to give you all the motivation and support you need to achieve your goals.

Your trainer will design a progressive training workout just for you. They'll select the appropriate loads, reps, sets and sequence of exercises, ensuring your time is best spent, giving much better results than if you were training alone. They'll also offer nutritional and lifestyle advice.

Workouts will be challenging, educational yet fun, and hopefully you'll find the experience has a positive effect on your whole life!

All Better personal trainers have REPS (Register of Exercise Professionals) level 3 qualifications or equivalent, which is the required national standard.

Sports Hall

The Sports Hall is a multi-sport arena featuring 6 badminton size courts. The hall can be divided up into a variety of different combinations to suit an array of different sports and activities. Also meaning that various activities can take place at the same time. Event seating for up to 200  people is also available.


Creche Play & Learn for under 5's gives you the chance to take part in leisure activities, knowing your children are well-cared for. You can leave your child for up to 2 hours. Booking is essential and places are limited so we are afraid any no-shows (including Prepaid members) will result in the full charge being made.
