About Us



Welcome from Pat Rockett and Jean Nugent at the Crystal Sports & Leisure Centre.

As a former Waterford Crystal worker, Pat, who qualified as a glassmaker in 1979, felt the building had huge potential and together with Jean they opened the Centre in October 2013.

A familiar face in the Waterford business community, Pat has 35 years' experience in the sports and leisure trade and has been running Pat Rocket Martial Arts Academy for the past 15 years, which now boasts over 200 members. He also has wide experience in business management and was the general manager of the Reginald Bar for10 years.

Now that the future of the family friendly leisure centre is on firm footing, both Pat and Jean are busy turning their ambitious plans into a reality. Among the plans already realised are the opening of a new cafe/coffee shop in the heart of the building, a ladies only gym and there location of the martial arts academy to the centre.

The Crystal Sports and Leisure Centre also boats a fully equipped unisex gym, large sports hall,25m swimming pool, bar and function room, conference room, separate ladies and men's dressing rooms, a communal dressing room and disabled access. As part of the new ownership structure, Pat and Jean are offering new affordable membership rates for individuals and families. The numbers of new members have been increasing on a daily basis.

The Crystal Sports & Leisure Centre is open to all members of the public and we believe we offer the best value-for-money in the South East.

Our Public swims, Gym and memberships are now available to Book Online!
