Moberly Sports Centre is outstanding, including the pool

14 September, 2018

• MOBERLY Sports Centre is probably the best new sports location that has been built in central London in recent years, offering outstanding national level facilities for local residents. Three thousand have joined, voting with their gym kits, running shoes and swimming costumes.

Westminster City Council demands the highest standards of health, safety and hygiene at all its leisure facilities, and we demand immediate improvements if these standards are not met, (Hygiene at the Moberly pool does not impress me, September 7).

At Moberly Sports Centre, the operational team strictly follows the national guidelines set by the Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group (PWTAG). These include regular water testing as well as independent bacteriological testing of the pool. I’m pleased to say that Moberly meets the national standards.

There are also advisory signs throughout the reception and changing areas advising customers to shower before swimming. We recognise and respect the fact that one or two residents are wedded to the old Jubilee site, where we will build a new centre.

But a modern sports and leisure offer for a wider community required the new Moberly Sports Centre, which has a great offer for everyone.
