PLANS for a swanky new health and fitness club in Broome Manor have been revealed to the public for the first time.

The Broome Manor Club, a 35,000-square foot health, fitness and wellbeing facility, will also serve as a National Centre of Excellence for squash.

Residents will later this month get to have their say on the proposed development, which is still subject to planning permission, at a grand unveiling at the Broome Manor Golf Club.

A spokesman for The Leisure Group, the company behind the plans, said: “Swindon has become awash with budget fitness operators and it’s about time that residents were given the opportunity of joining a health club which gives a sense of belonging, somewhere to go where people were made to feel special.

“We love our plans and look forward to receiving feedback and hearing the views of the local community at our public exhibition.”

The Leisure Group also runs The Marlow Club and The Thames Club in North London, both of which offer innovative group fitness classes ranging from high intensity team training sessions to yoga classes.

Located on the grounds of the Broome Manor Golf Course just off Pipers Way, the 2,500 member club will feature a state-of-the-art 85 station gymnasium as well as cardio and conditioning training floors.

There will also be four studios which include the main group fitness studio, a yoga studio and a spin studio equipped to offer the latest digital and highly competitive indoor cycling experience.

A small Pilates studio and a dedicated personal training area will also offer private sessions by expert instructors.

Gloucester architects Roberts Limbrick have been commissioned with the design of the building which also includes a spa, a health and wellbeing centre, a 20m swimming pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna.

The Club will also serve as a National Centre of Excellence for Squash and will boast eight championship squash courts.

Keir Worth, the CEO of England Squash, is delighted about the new squash facility coming to Swindon.

He said: “The venue provides us with a great opportunity to enhance squash in the south of the UK, replicating our Manchester model which is the home of the sport.

“We see this facility as being an integral part of us moving forward and it will undoubtedly feature heavily within our scheduled programme of events.

“We look forward to working with partners to ensure this facility becomes one of England Squash’s centres of excellence that will drive our sport forward.”

Plans will be on show at the Broome Manor Golf Club between 3pm and 7pm on Monday, June 26.
