Tewkesbury leisure centre: have you been yet?
After lots of anticipation, Tewkesbury Leisure Centre is up and running!
The centre opened its doors to the public on the May Bank Holiday weekend, but was officially opened on Saturday, 2 July by Olympian, Sharron Davies MBE and up-and-coming local swimmer, Levana Hanson. They buried a time capsule and helped coach young swimmers taking lessons.
In the short time since opening, steady streams of customers have been taking advantage of the 60 station gym, five-lane main pool, four-lane teaching pool (with a fun splash area), sauna, steam rooms, workout studio and café area.
There are a number of great value, all-inclusive or swim-only memberships. Or you can simply pay-as-you-go!
If you've not been yet, come along to have a look at the state-of-the-art centre and find out about all of the exciting new facilities on offer.
Wendy Steventon is a customer who visited on the day it opened. She said: "The whole building is so light, bright and airy and having cubicles with warm flooring is fabulous. It was great to see the families arrive and enjoy all the inflatable activities on offer. Well done to all the lifeguards who were on hand to have a chat and answer all my questions. I am so impressed and know I will use the facilities to keep me fit and healthy as I head towards 70 years of age. Well done everyone involved in this fab new leisure centre."
Tewkesbury Borough Council has appointed Places for People Leisure to run the new leisure centre on its behalf. It is a social enterprise with a successful track record of managing more than 100 local authority leisure facilities across the country for nearly 25years.
