With popular sports including hockey, cricket, rugby and American Football, Chicester also has a centrally-located and first-rate leisure centre called Westgate which offers residents the chance to get involved in squash, swimming and fitness classes.
Chichester has a historic city centre and this makes it a joy to shop in. It also has a generous number of independent sports shops, all specialising in different active pursuits. Herbert Sports for example, is a Chichester sports shop that sells equipment for virtually all traditional sports - including running, swimming and racket sports. Shore Watersports on the other hand, specialises in water-based clothing and equipment and sells many famous fashion brands such as Roxy, Quicksilver and Animal.
