All day venue
Aug 2018 • Friends
The NSC is a great place to spend time , family time , gym time , swimming. the place is awesome.It was effected with the floods sometime ago but they have got it back up and running now even better than before. Just so much going on there it's difficult to focus on one thing but if you enjoy your sport what ever you do the NSC will accommodate you. Great place just to visit and see what's going on. Nice café.

Cold swimming Pool!
Jul 2017 • Family
Went with the kids here and the slides / play pools were okay but the main swimming pool noticeably colder than the pool I visit at home. The fire alarm went off for no reason and we all had to stand NEAR the exit doors but were not exited from the building.

A great facility
Nov 2016 • Business
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.

Fun, fun fun! A big hit with the kids and adults alike
Aug 2016 • Family
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 superb for all. The showers and changing rooms and clean and spacious. The cafe within the centre is such good value for money with lovely food and drinks. We will definitely return here when next in the IOM.

Excellent Facilities
Nov 2015 • Family
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.
Although getting a bit tired now the pool is still an excellent all round family fun area. It lends itself to a number of uses including big sports events such as the 2011 commonwealth youth games, which was superb.
There are a great number of sports halls large and small with the main hall having the ability to be divided up into smaller segments.
My only criticisms of fantastic centre are some of the grumpy staff who work here, the front desk leaves a lot to be desired with very few smiling people - come on guys this is the door to your centre and the first point of contact visitors have, if they see a grumpy face or get a cold reception, which most people receive 80% of the time then they won't return.
The cafe could do with an overhaul and some new faces too. Menu is boring and to be honest not healthy at all.
Otherwise great guys, keep it up.

Great pool/slides
Sep 2015 • Friends
I'm a regular visitor to the NSC as my son works there. I'm always amazed how popular and busy it is without feeling overcrowded lots of space and things going on the whole complex is a great place to spend a day. Good changing areas food available not great but I class it as a food stop rather than a dinning experience. A great place if its raining and not rip off prices.

Great Pool Complex
Jul 2015 • Family
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 other pools on the Island

Great slides!

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.
