The Norman Booth Building was opened in 1972, following years of fundraising to replace the North Ilford Tennis Club on Beehive Lane in Ilford. The Centre was groundbreaking, as only the second state-of-the-art Sports Centre when opened over 40 years ago, the Centre has evolved through ten phases of capital development into the International multi-sports venue it is now.
The Health Suite is located behind reception and is accessible from both Male and Female changing rooms, and is available for mixed access throughout the Centre's opening times . Containing a Sauna & Steam Room, the Health Suite is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a tough day at work, or after a challenging session in the gym or on court!
