Have used this facility now for many times since its being rebuilt and re-sited nearer to the school, i have to say that the young guy lifeguard appears to be 100% on his toes and deals with developing hazards very very effectively, think i heard his name as Andrew, the whole area is a credit to the town, the only...

The old was a old building and yes the pool was cold but the only reason it was is because they knew the new one was coming so they didn't bother and the new one is shocking i went with my son there and they said there was a drop floor so people could teach there kids how to dive... More

I am a regular gym user and must say that overall the experience is much better but a bit cramped and oversubscribed at the moment - especially in peak periods. The pool now looks lovely and i cant wait to use it (lets hope it stays that way). As for the rest of the building it looks great, clean tidy... More

I went with 2 of my friends for a swim, the Lifguards were very unhelpful when we had a question about the pool timetable and there was always 2 stand and chatting not concentrating on the pool at all, worst of all they kept checking their phones! You can see staff going for cigarette breaks by the side of the... More

Most of the staff are rude and see them smoking outside the back which is not a professional look. The gym equipment is ok but some broken. The building needs to be updated as hasn't changed for years. The swimming pools are freezing and poolside is very dirty especially in the drains. Can't wait for the new build.

All in all it is a great place to go and the... More

pool is still a little on the cool side but when they get it right it is a good place to swim. They also need to sort out the lockers as they seem to get jammed. Staff very friendly & a good way for me to start the day every weekday morning

I really like Bramston Sports Centre, I used to use the swimming pool a lot when I was younger. They have three pools available: the learner pool, the merlin pool and the main pool. The learner pool is for young children and parents, it is heated and very shallow. The merlin pool is used for diving as the floor can... More
