I used the cafe whilst my husband was taking part in a sportive that started from Earlham Park - there is a good variety of food and Costa hot drinks available. Whilst here I walked round the facilities and was very impressed especially with Bernard Matthews Olympic sized swimming pool!

I've been using the Sportspark for over 10 years for all manner of activities. The facilities are exceptional and well kept, the prices are extremely fair and justified. Excellent.

If you didn't know better you might think that the UEA Sportspark is just for the students. Well, whilst there are quite a lot of students about, anyone can turn up and play an enormous range of sports. You can get various levels of membership depending on how much you think you'll use it. Best of all - you only... More

I joined the sports park based on the great swimming pool, took out silver membership which offers unlimited access to the pool (so they say). But it seem that paying customers are last on the list for being able to use the facilities they pay for. On many occasions I have turned up for a swim at the weekend to... More

Sport park is very complete sport center. The swimming pool is impressive and fairly clean. Very slippery in the changing room. The gym is very clean and lot of equipment. The climbing wall is good but hate being ask to live once student come in. I believe that if membership are sold full price to public, public should be treated... More

I've been to many sport centres all over the country and this is one of the best. The facilities are very good and the staff are plentiful, helpful and very friendly. I play in the squash leagues (am just joining again after an absence) and the court fees are cheaper than anywhere else I know and the Bronze membership which... More

I use the Sportspark at least once, often two or three times a week either in the pool, in the gym or doing karate. The facilities are absolutely first-class. It sometimes gets a bit busy, especially when the students come into the gym en mass off peak and behave in studenty ways, but even then it's not too bad. A... More

I've been a silver card member for a few months now, don't know why this wasn't my no 1 gym before - they do everything for everyone. Love that fact they do tons for families and children including an activity camp. Love the over 50's programme, even though i'm not there its great to see so many active elders. plenty... More

Well I go everyday to gain some muscle wait. I got a Personal trainer to get a program also but I think there should be calculations first to know the persentage of fat and muscle on body. Then the program would be better and it would be possible to see the change in the body. Without that I feel a... More

There are some really great facilities here, it's such a shame that the staff can be so rude. To be fair, a good few of them are quite polite, but some of them can be quite obnoxious and won't ever apologise for making mistakes. They've been disrespectful, condescending and appear to be on a power-trip for a good portion of... More
