Ponds Forge International Sports Centre
Sheaf Street, Sheffield, South Yorkshire S1 2BP
Big sports centre in the the city centre. Price to be a member is a lot cheaper than most of the other gyms around and there is a lot of variety as you can use the other gyms owned by SIV including the Hillsborough lesiure centre. Only downside is because it is in the centre of town there is no parking on site. You can use a car park near by, but you still have to pay.
this venue is one of the best sports centres with shefield and reasonably priced as well theres not b=much bad you can say about the place.
The venue plays host to professional events as well as being used by the public and a leisure centre, with a well equiped gym and large fun pool as well as a full sized professional pool for training/events the centre offers just about everything.
the staff are friendly and the space is clean, the only possible complaint is that changing areas tend to (more...)louby_lou
This is a well placed sports centre within the city. It’s close to the tram and bus station.
The centre has just gone under a bit of a refurbishment with a new members gym being built, which was well over due. This means the gym has been moved from the main entrance creating a spacious lobby and some seating.
The new gym has all the facilities you would expect, with new changing rooms which are a little warm. There are more machinery and more space in the gym allowing more people to work (more...)zaitoon
I visit ponds forge somtimes when i,m up north visiting family.
This is quite a few years old now but they seem to keep it looking quite clean.
The temparature of the water always seems to be abit on the cool side when you first get in i think they should heat it up a bit better.
They have two pools here a fun pool with a wave machine and a large international pool that the serious swimmers use aswell as international athletes.
Good selection of drinks and snacks at the cafe bar although a little too pricey i thought.
Ponds Forge was built for the student games a few years back, and as swimming baths go, is very good. having been built to house athletes and professionals, its clearly a step above the other local swimming places on offer. Its in the town centre and has good transport links.
