This is a large 6 badminton court sports hall that can also be used for basketball, volleyball, netball and indoor cricket. Full male and female changing facilities are available.
The Gym would be ideal to have karate sessions or aerobic style activities as it is a lot smaller than the main sports hall giving it a capacity of around 25. It has a sprung floor and full male and female changing facilities are available.
The Wall is a corridor shape with climbs on both sides and ends. Its surfaces are of breeze block with rock holds and concrete cracks for most of the wall and brick with chipped holds for the two bolted walls. The wall is 6.8m high to the walkway at the top and offers about 85 square meters of climbing surface. On the walkway there are top rope bars that cover all of the breeze block surfaces. There is a small changing area from which the walkway can be reached by a fixed ladder.
