David Lloyd Emersons Green, Bristol

David Lloyd Emersons Green, Bristol

The Emersons Green club is the 100th UK club for David Lloyd Leisure. When he started his first leisure club in the early 1980s, David Lloyd had been part of the Pellikaan Tennis Team, where he got to train and play at the first Dutch indoor tennis centre: the Pellikaan Tennis Centre in Goirle. Pellikaan worked on the design of that first David Lloyd Club in Heston, and stayed connected to the chain ever since.

This David Lloyd club will offer a large gym floor, a sports hall and four group exercise studios for indoor cycling, high impact, Mind & Body and a new boutique-style Blaze studio. Tennis players can use the external show court or one of three courts in the tennis bubble. In addition, there will be a 20m indoor pool as well as a 25 meter outdoor heated pool and kids pools. The spa area combines indoor and outdoor facilities including saunas and steam rooms, hydropool, relax area etc.

For playing, socialising and unwinding members can use the DL kids club and the cafebar, choose for the family zone or adults only lounge, or go to the business hub.

Leisure Centre Woodley

Leisure Centre Woodley

Pellikaan won the design & build tender to replace the tired former leisure centre in Woodley.

The new leisure centre will include a six-lane 25-metre swimming pool, a teaching pool with a movable floor, a gym plus a ‘live well’ gym, a four-court sports hall, and an additional studio and a café. It will benefit the whole community with its up-to-date, accessible and flexible facilities, as well as preventative health services.

“This new centre won’t just be a hub for sports – a place to improve or maintain your health. It will be a community focus for people in Woodley of all ages and sporting abilities to enjoy, and socialise, as well as somewhere to go for help to avoid health issues becoming a problem in the first place,” said Cllr Norman Jorgensen, executive member for environment, leisure and libraries.

Andover Leisure Centre

Andover Leisure Centre

Places Leisure has won the new 30-year leisure DBOM contract for Test Valley Borough Council. To improve the leisure facilities in the city, Pellikaan and Roberts Limbrick Architects were responsible for the design and build construction of the leisure centre.

The new centre includes a gym, virtual bike studio, a 25-meter pool and learning pool with moveable floor, splash pad, dance studios, eight-court sports hall, squash courts, adventure play, Clip and Climb™ and café.

Test Valley Borough Council were keen to retain sports facilities during construction of the new centre, therefore, the project was carried out in phases: after partial demolition, construction of the new centre took place, followed by demolition of the remainder of the building and completion of the landscaping works.

As an operator of leisure clubs in The Netherlands, we have a unique insight in the operational aspects of refurbishments and extensions. Our approach and commitment are focussed on minimising disruption to operational matters. Operating results and long term memberships benefit from this approach, as users can continue their training programmes at their own club.
