I am not sure that I go to the same leisure centre that some of your correspondents refer to in the Journal (January 24).
Maybe I have merely been fortunate up to now, but I do go swimming three times a week, early in the morning and I would like to point out that I have never found the changing rooms to be “dirty and smelly”.
The staff have been fine when I have been dealing with them, and as for the cost, I pay annually and so this works out at less than £1 per session, which I feel is pretty good value.
These amenities are never going to be perfect, and in the past there have been annoying closures due to lack of staff, and the changing rooms are a little cold when you get out of the pool.
Apart from these, I am content with both the value for money and the service which we get.
