We all have our favourite go-to sport, but it doesn't hurt to change it up every now and then

Though there are a plethora of parks, fields, and centres for us to play the sports we love, oftentimes they cater to only one kind of sport.

Sometimes, going to a sports centre is more fun than going to a football field or basketball court complex.

Here are eight sports centres around PJ and KL that switch things up, and have multiple courts for different kinds of sports.

1. PJ Palms Sports Centre

Walking distance from the Taman Jaya LRT Station, PJ Palms Sports Centre is a great place to play some sports with young kids.

Possessing a 50-metre swimming pool and a kiddie pool, you'll be able to challenge your aquatic abilities with your kids. Swimming lessons are also available for kids if necessary. There are also two fully air-conditioned cricket lanes, two squash courts, and even a diving centre

With the 'Out of Africa' bar and restaurant in the complex, and the popular A&W Restaurant nearby too, no membership is required to spend a day at this sports centre. To view the amenities in full, visit their website.
