Balham Leisure Centre

More akin to a royal banqueting hall than a swimming pool, Balham Pool’s high vaulted ceilings and oodles of natural light make it a pleasant place to do a few lengths. Thoroughly modernised, and with a minimum/maximum depth of 1m/1.8m, this 25m pool is evenly split between lane and casual swims. There are a plethora of daily Aqua classes including Aqua Jog, Aqua Fit and Aqua Circuits. If the notion of physical exercise gets too exhausting, then allow your pores to breathe in the steam room and sauna.

Decent local gym and good pool for people that don't want to be surrounded by hyper-gym-bunnies and looking-in-the-mirror-posers. You can pay per visit, but full membership includes access to Tooting Lido down the road, which is a bonus. Lots of classes and friendly staff too. 

Great local pool with a gym in the same building. The pool was refurbished in 2015, so it's nice and clean with big change rooms. The Balham Leisure Centre gym is part of the Places for People brand and provides a large area for a decent price. The main membership includes the gym, the pool and unlimited classes. The classes are great for increasing motivation and fitness levels.
