And that's not all!

There are plenty more activities and clubs in Thamesmead that you can join in to keep active and have fun.


Although the parks, open spaces and riverside pathways make this area a haven for fitness junkies who want to jog, run, walk and cycle, for those who want to go that extra mile Thamesmead also boasts its own leisure centre which was built by Trust Thamesmead and then transferred to Greenwich Council.

Thamesmere Leisure Centre in Thamesmere Drive, close to the town centre, offers a fantastic range of activities for groups, families and individuals including a swimming pool, a gym and weight training room and personal fitness programmes. A member of the Government's Swim4Free scheme.

As of 2 November 2009, free badminton is being offered every Monday, 2:00-3:00pm.
