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.

The staff- they're not rude, but couldn't care less

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

This was completely refurbished about a year ago and the facilities are excellent. I play badminton there regularly and bought an annual membership for £30 to get a discount. It now costs me just £3.95 to book a court for an hour on weekends and £5.40 on weekday evenings. You need to be quick with your advanced bookings though as spaces tend to get taken up quickly, but once you get a rhythm,...more
