The centre boasts a 60-station fitness suite, which houses the latest cardio-vascular and strength training equipment, and a 25m, six-lane swimming pool that offers a number of aquatic activities including award winning swimming lessons.

Anselm Gurney, contract manager at Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre, said:
