The sports complex has a vast range of facilities and can accommodate many recreational sports such as football, Squash, snooker and Badminton among others. There is also a swimming pool and diving pool, but these closed following the opening of Sunderland Olympic Pool.
The centre is also linked to The Bridges Shopping Centre.

The rink used to be home of The Sunderland Chiefs ( Senior ), The Sunderland Tomahawks (u19s), The Sunderland Arrows (U16s) & The Sunderland Commanches (U12s), a number of recreational Ice Hockey also played out of Crowtree including the Sunderland Cobra's and the Crowtree Bandits, now known as the Newcastle Predators playing out of Whitley Bay Ice Rink.
