Major refurbishment completed at Tidworth Leisure Centre
Military and civilian customers are enjoying improved, high quality sports, leisure and library facilities at Tidworth Leisure Centre, which reopened on Monday 22 October following a major refurbishment project delivered by Aspire Defence.
Tidworth Leisure Centre (TLC) is owned by the Ministry of Defence. Aspire Defence Services Limited (ADSL) manages the building and Wiltshire Council manages the public leisure operations for the site. TLC was closed to the public over the summer holidays to enable ADSL to carry out essential upgrades to the building.
The improved facilities include a new atrium roof and extensive roof refurbishment, new pool heating and hot water systems, newly resurfaced pool-side walkways and wetside changing rooms, new lockers in the wetside changing rooms, redecorated fitness and viewing areas, and refurbished squash courts.
Allan Thomson, Chief Executive of ADL, said:
“The project team from ADSL and their contractors have done an outstanding job in delivering a better, brighter amenity for Tidworth. This significant investment supports our commitment to making soldiers’ lives better, by ensuring they have access to high quality facilities, and these essential upgrades will ensure Tidworth Leisure Centre continues to operate safely, for the benefit of all military and civilian customers.”
John Thomson, Cabinet Member for Leisure (Wiltshire Council), said:
“We’re delighted that the newly refurbished Tidworth Leisure Centre is now fully open for customers to enjoy.
“We’ve been improving leisure facilities up and down the county and we hope the work we’ve done will please the centre’s regular users, but also attract some new members to make the most of all the great facilities on offer.
“We would like to thank our customers for their understanding during the refurbishment works, and our partners at Aspire Defence, the Defence Infrastructure Organisation and TNB Garrison.”
