The Mountbatten Leisure Centre is set in an attractive park adjacent to Portsmouth's northern shore. The centre is the city's premier sports facility and has a long reputation for hosting a wide variety of national and international sporting events.
The centre has undergone a major redevelopment and refurbishment in recent years, comprising the construction of a new 50-metre pool and teaching pool, a large 150-station fitness suite, a new health suite and revamped changing areas. The eight-lane athletics track has been refurbished, as has the cycle track. Elsewhere, improved lighting has been installed in the main sports hall. The final stages of the redevelopment included extending both the Alex Way and Twyford Avenue car parks and a new cafe, studios and function room.
Other facilities on the site include a squash court, dance studios, an all-weather pitch and a number of tennis and netball courts.
The café and function areas provide attractive areas to relax and to enjoy a wide range of refreshments from snacks to main course meals.
There are a number of rooms in the complex that can be used as meeting or briefing rooms, for doping control and video playback requirements, or as private offices.
There is a sports injury clinic based within the centre and access to physiotherapists and masseurs can be arranged.
The Portsmouth Gymnastics Centre is situated adjacent to the athletics track. This has two full-size, sprung-floor areas and a full range of gymnastics equipment (including a number of items located over pitted landing areas), a tumble track and a fast track.
A number of sports clubs call the Mountbatten Centre "home", including Portsmouth Athletics Club, Portsmouth Northsea Swimming Club, Portsmouth City Water Polo and Portsmouth Wheelchair Racing. There are also over-50s groups and a full itinerary of events for those aged 50 and over.
