This soft play is amazing! Round the corner from my house I go to the gym here and didn’t even realise they had one. I’ve been going here every week with my baby for a few months and it is so big! Lots of sections for different ages my baby loves it. My baby goes free until she is 1 and adults go free which is how it should be! The coffees are amazing and the menu is brilliant with really reasonable prices. Highly recommend!

I've been a member for quite a few years now and I've always enjoyed the workout classes but since I've been doing Lotties TRX classes twice a week they have become my firm favourites. The atmosphere in these classes is amazing everybody interacts to help any newbies we all get on so well it's a lovely friendly atmosphere. Lottie goes out of her way to improve us all she works us hard but its friendly and fun I have certainly noticed an improvement in my own strength I enjoy this form of exercise so much I have bought a set of TRX straps and set them up at home for the days there aren't classes but that wouldn't replace the benefit of Lotties tuition. Thanks Lottie keep up the good work.

I took out a membership about 6 months ago , I use the gym, swimming, aqua aerobics and do some fitness classes. I find the staff very friendly and always happy to help if needed. It is also helping me have a better lifestyle too. I would highly recommend this Sports Centre to anyone.

I use the gym, do post natal, couple of the exercise classes and the pool for aqua aerobics and water babies. Staff are all amazing, great having different instructors as they all do rountines in a different way which is great for different workouts. I always leave my workouts feeling great due to the push and support they give you to get through the class. My daughter has also done swimming lessons here for a long time and is doing grand and really enjoys it!Definitely recommend this centre ☺️

The gymnastics facilities are truly excellent and the staff are knowledgeable, fun, helpful and skilled. My children have been going to the pre-school classes for years and the classes are tailored to their abilities in the most gentle way, enabling them to enjoy learning and therefore succeed. Couldn't recommend enough. If you're unsure of which class is best, seek out Laura!

My daughter had a swimming party at midsomer Norton. It’s was fantastic! She had a brilliant time and wants another. The host Shannon was outstanding! She made everything so easy, nothing was to much trouble and she was amazing with the children. My son now wants a swimming party which I will be booking without hesitation. Absolutely fantastic ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Lauren.

I use the gym and pool facilities at Dragonfly Midsomer Norton. I find all the staff extremely friendly and helpful, nothing is too much, from a general chat to advice on the different classes they provide.Shannon is great at Aqua Aerobics, she ensures that you follow the class and helps if you have difficulty following or are not able to to do all the exercises by providing an alternative exercise.The gym staff know their stuff and ensure you are able to use the equipment correctly so as not to injure yourself.

My family had a great swim on the weekend and was so impressed by Shannon who was pool side during our session- she was kind, friendly, made both my children feel comfortable and welcome. She was engaging with others too which made her seem very approachable, but remained completely professional throughout.Thank you :)

I've been a regular for over a year and wouldn't change!The equipment is new and well looked after, classes are great, staff is always helpful, swimming pool is good (only observation, water is on the warmer side which can get uncomfortable for some swimmers), lots to do for adults and kids, coffee not bad either, overall clean 👍👍👍👍👍

I use both the Midsomer Norton and Writhington sites. All staff are friendly and helpful. Classes are fantastic - I haven't tried them all because there are so many to chose from, but have enjoyed every one I've been to. I can't mention them all, but just a quick shout out for TRX with Lotte, spinning with Emily and yoga with Bev. Both gyms are well equipped and I never have a problem getting on equipment. My weight, fitness and general well being have all improved significantly in the year that I've been a member. In addition, it's so cheap for what you get, working out at about £1 a day for everything! Thanks everyone, and keep up the good work!

I would like to share the fabulous experience I have just had at Dragonfly Leisure with you.Being new to group exercise and nowhere near where I would like to be in fitness terms I have been attending Lotte’s wonderful TRX classes after many months of her cajoling , coaxing and encouraging me to attend and have been overwhelmed by the support and understanding she has shown me in classes.Imagine my terror of arriving for class today to find out the class was being taking by a young man called Taylor.Now to say I didn’t think about tapping my band and legging it home as fast as my short stumpy legs could carry me would be a lie but I didn’t want to appear to be rude to the lad so snuck in with the thought of feigning injury so I could leave halfway through or hiding at the back , in my few minutes of terror I even started to consider quickly finding a Harry Potter cloak of invisibility as that seemed like more of a possibility than being able to keep up in this young man’s class!!!WHAT A BRILLIANT EXPERIENCE!!!Taylor was so supportive , not just to me but to the other ladies in the class that were newbies! He offered me alternative exercises that suited my ability when I looked at him shocked , he constantly checked back on me to make sure I was in a correct position and that I was comfortable with the intensity of the exercise and gave me such a feeling of reassurance and confidence ! I know no one can match up to Lotte but Taylor definitely comes in a close second . Not once did I feel out of place and that I didn’t belong when I got in the studio . Congratulations to Dragonfly leisure for nurturing and giving the young people in your organisation the chance to help other people with their passion for fitness. I would also like to mention Shannon whose aqua aerobics sessions I have also attended recently . Both these young people are so polite , friendly , welcoming and supportive , in-fact all the young staff I have had the pleasure of coming into contact with since starting my fitness journey with yourselves have been outstanding . Thank you for encouraging and mentoring the next generation , they should all be very proud of themselves.

Wonderful soft play - my 3 year old grandson loves it - different areas for different ages and the cafe and entrance fee is reasonably priced. Not 5* due to quite slow service from the cafe sometimes.

My son had such a great first swimming lesson this morning at Midsomer Norton - both teachers (I believe one was called Roxy and the other lovely lady had short hair) were absolutely fabulous and so great with the kids. I was apprehensive at first as this was my sons first solo lesson without me but I had nothing to worry about. He loved every minute of it and can’t wait for next weeks lesson already!

This soft play is excellent. There are spaces for babies, toddlers and older children. The cafe serves reasonably priced food. One word of caution, you need to book a place in school holidays.

Probably the best swimming pool in the area and there's a little self service cafe in the entrance which has a decent view of the pool. For parents of kids doing training there's another area them with a low wall which gives the parents a chance to talk to the kids. Full marks to the architect. I can't comment about the rest of the facilities except to say a the staff members I spoke to were very efficient and friendly.
