I like going to Copthall because it is a very welcoming environment. The staff are very friendly and helpful, as are the people using the facilities. If one gets a membership ticket it is amazingly good value also - if I have a spare half an hour I often pop in to do my routine in the gym or to have a swim and the new facilities look great. Also, I generally find a few of my friends doing the same thing. It’s a wonderful facility to have on one’s doorstep!
