Canada Game Centre
So, yes technically this is a gym, but it has so much more to enjoy than just that. The inside track is awesome (especially in the colder weather). The pool has tons of open swims, classes and even a cheap night on Tuesday and Thursdays! As a member, my favorite part is that you can book the court downstairs for basketball, volleyball, tennis, and badminton and lots more! They’ll even supply the equipment! Become Sporty Spice HERE!
