The main entrance doors are powered and open automatically from the outside, from the inside you’ll need to push the exit button.

All other doors in the sports centre are manually operated. Doors have vision panels, or are predominantly glass with the obvious exception of doors into toilets and changing areas. The doors into the swimming pool area are large and heavy; staff are happy to help if needed.

Doors through to the older part of the sports centre are held open.

There are double doors out to the running track. These are fairly heavy and are manually operated. There is a bell push outside these doors that alerts staff if you need assistance getting back inside the centre.

cafe

Cafe

+ more

You’ll see the café opposite the reception desk as you enter the sports centre. There is ramped level access either side of the counter. The counter is 91cm high and does not have a lowered section. The fridge containing sandwiches and drinks is behind a rail meaning that wheelchair users may not be able to serve themselves. In addition, this area of the counter is situated on a ramp. However, staff at the café will be happy to help.

There are freestanding small tables and chairs that can be rearranged as needed. The tables have good kneehole space underneath.

There is an addition area of seating with high stools and a “breakfast bar”.
