Facility Tour

From our 7060.6 square metres fieldhouse, 200m indoor MONDO© track, 3 full basketball courts, rock climbing walls, state-of-the-art cardio room and weight room to our swimming pools, hot pool and full range of accessible equipment, we have something to fit everyone’s needs. Whether you’re a serious athlete or working on getting fit and staying healthy, you can do it at Variety Village in our welcoming, family-oriented, inclusive environment.

Facility Features

Our 7060.6 square metres field house houses a 200m MONDO© Track, 3 full basketball courts, 5 rock climbing walls, a high ropes obstacle course, an accessible outdoor playground, and 7 Olympic weightlifting platforms. The MONDO track is cushioned to absorb the impact of the foot hitting it and transmit it into the floor rather than back up at the runner/walker. This results is a lower impact to the bones and joints.

Accessibility Features:
  • Inner track is complete with a railing that can guide members with a visual disability around the track or assist people with mobility issues with balance and support
  • 2 lanes on track are dedicated for wheelchairs
  • Wheelchairs and hand cycles

Our aquatic facility features 2 swimming pools!

We have a 25m long, 15m wide deep pool with a depth that ranges from 1.5m – 4m. It is divided into 6 lanes by Antiwave © lane ropes (developed for the 2000 Sydney Olympics). The pool temperature is kept at 30 C.

Our recreation pool is a shallow 15m by 15m pool with a maximum depth of 1.5m and a .6m shallow end. It is equipped with assistive railings around the edge of the pool and a gradual ramp leading into it. This pool is also kept at 30 C.

In addition to our 2 main pools, we have a 33 C hot pool. This pool is very shallow (approximately .6m) and has high pressure jets along one side of it to give you that much needed post-workout massage.

Accessibility Features:
  • Bubbled tile to alert people with visual impairments that they are close to the pool edge
