From 3pm-5pm, everyone in the community will have a chance to join in some free activities, or just drop in to check out the facilities. Book below any of the FREE activities organised by Everyone Active and ActiveWestminster to mark the official opening of the centre!

Free activities available on the day:

  • Basketball
  • Walking Football
  • Volleyball
  • Badminton
  • Table Tennis
  • Zumba
  • Exercise To Music
  • Pilates
  • Yoga

Appealing to people of every age, gender and fitness level, it features a massive three-court sports hall with activities like 5-a-side football, while the community studio caters for group exercise classes and children’s parties.

The private exercise consultation room (for the Physical Activity Referral Scheme) enables healthcare practitioners to refer patients for personalised exercise regimens to assist with chronic health issues.

Customer platform lifts and a ‘changing places’ space allow users with complex disabilities and their carers to fully adapt to their needs.

Everyone’s welcome!
