Those new to Brixton might be put off by some of the characters
It's a public health centre - it's not perfect by a long shot.
But hey, it suits me fine. I play squash here regularly and always return!more
Lots of stuff at this place, but all I can say is there aren't many places in london where without being a member you can turn up on a weekend and 9 times out of 10 get a squash court without booking. In fact this might be the only one. Also according to the plaque Nelson Mandela has been here, so you'll be playing squash in good companymore
I have more or less grown up in this centre with all the swimming and basketball lessons, cricket club, junior gym for under 16s and of course the Play Zone which is the most amazing place on earth when you're 4.
But I am now at the ripe old age of 17 and have to now make do with the pool and yoga/pilates classes.
So as a student here are my pros and cons...
Cons (I only like to finish with...more
Lovely gym kind of ruined by rubbish staff.
Great facilities- from climbing wall to pool to gymn to bowling and a decent enough programme of activities.
The staff, however, are generally unhelpful- difficult to join/leave, and it can be like pulling teeth to get anything done. Who is it? Yep- gll.more
Strange though they may be to you, I don't care.
You will form a relationship with them and a very good one at that.
Really, it's not that hard.
People have been doing it for hundreds nah thousands of years before you, and yet there seems to be a broken link between you and them.
I implore you, have your staff form a loving relationship with a mop and bucket, and make sure it's a lasting one!more
