Olympic Rower opens David Lloyd Worcester

Olympic gold and silver medallist and triple World Champion rower, Zac Purchase MBE, joined schoolchildren in a “Get Active” session after officially opening the new David Lloyd Leisure club in Worcester last Wednesday. Zac, who is originally from the area, said he was delighted to officially open David Lloyd Leisure’s new club for the Worcester community - an absolutely stunning club, offering families and individuals a fantastic array of health, sports and leisure facilities.

Scott Lloyd, chief executive of David Lloyd Leisure, said: “David Lloyd Worcester is our 81st club in the UK and opens during a milestone year in that we are celebrating three decades since opening our first club. David Lloyd Worcester is a shining example of our core aims – providing unrivalled facilities, innovative products and world-class expertise for the whole family, delivered by highly qualified professionals genuinely focused on encouraging and supporting members every step of the way to achieve their health and fitness goals.”

Also Wayne Isaac, general manager at the Worcester club, expressed that it is wonderful to see the club open after several months of very hard work: “I can honestly say that David Lloyd Worcester’s facilities are second to none.”

The official opening saw Worcester Warriors, whose Sixways Stadium home ground is next to David Lloyd Worcester, prove they were game for a laugh when some of the team swapped conversions for a master class in Bokwa, the latest dance craze sweeping the UK.
