Testimonials

 

 "As a training venue it's a lovely environment - it's got everything." Mark Foster, GB 

"The facilities at Surrey Sports Park are really impressive. It's an amazing 50m pool and a fantastic place to train and race." Karen Pickering, GB 

"It was a true pleasure to call Surrey Sports Park our home in the lead up to the London 2012 Olympic Games. The staff accommodated our every need and our athletes were well looked after and very appreciative of the service and support they received. The Sports Park were great hosts and provided exceptional support throughout. The staff did a fantastic job in providing the flexibility for a few extra laps when we reached the end of our scheduled pool time and the on site  performance services were of great use to our team." Andy Schmitz, USA Triathlon High Performance General Manager, London 2012
