Sport in Nottingham If you’re feeling energetic during your stay in Nottingham you may want to take advantage of the range of sports facilities the city has to offer. From football pitches and squash courts to swimming pools and jet skiing, there’s bound to be a venue to suit your sporting taste.

The city has a number of fitness centres including the Clifton Leisure Centre [map], which has four badminton courts and a leisure pool with water flumes, and the Harvey Hadden Leisure Centre [map], which has one of the largest sports halls in the region, along with an indoor 60m running track and a seven-lane outdoor track with infield area for long jump, pole-vaulting and discus.
