Manchester Aquatics Centre

Manchester Aquatics Centre is a public aquatic sports facility located on Oxford Road, just north of the main buildings of the University of Manchester. Purpose-built for the 2002 Commonwealth Games at a cost of £32 million, the Centre’s striking building has a roof which from outside looks like a wave.

The Centre offers a great range of facilities including 3 high-quality gyms, two 50m swimming pools, a health suite and an extensive fitness class programme, which can be accessed by membership, short term passes or pay and play. This facility is part of a unique collection of community and elite facilities governed by MCRactive, a not for profit organisation established and overseen by Manchester City Council. It is operated by Better under the MCRactive brand.
