I particularly love the Sussex Sports Centre because it is less crowded at everytime of the day, even at peak periods. It's a very clean, friendly and pleasant atmosphere where you can also make new friends. There are clean toilet facilities, sufficient changing space and lockers to keep your things

Many thanks for your positive feedback great to hear and hope you continue to enjoy using Sussexsports facilities
