Catering for everyone from 3 to 90 years old, it's a great sports club for tennis, squash, badminton and the gym. It's very social and great for the whole family.

Local football clubs play here in season and it's 3 minutes' walk from the town centre - easy access if you want some peace and quiet after a big shop.

Please tell us about KT5

"Up until the tenth century, Kingston stood on the border of two great kingdoms, Wessex and Mercia. King Athelstan then united the 2, and Kingston became a symbolic place of the united kingdom. As a consequence it became a place of coronation for future kings."
