Funders help unveil Westlands Sports & Fitness Centre

Local Parish Council's that helped financially fund the new Westlands Sports and Fitness Centre joined South Somerset District Council and LED Leisure Management Ltd to formally unveil the Centre ahead of the Open Days this weekend.

Representatives from Yeovil Town Council and Yeovil Without Parish Council cut the ribbon which formally unveiled the site that has also been part funded by Sport England, Badminton England and South Somerset District Council.

Councillor Sylvia Seal, Portfolio Holder for Leisure & Culture at South Somerset District Council said, "Financial contributions from Yeovil Town Council, Yeovil Without Parish Council and West Coker Parish Coker have helped us to create a sports and leisure facility that will service the community far and wide. Without their contributions, we would have struggled to fund the Westlands venture and faced the real possibility of not taking on the project and being able to meet public expectations."

Opening to customers on Monday 9th January 2017, the new Westlands Sport and Fitness Centre will be managed by LED Leisure Management Ltd and will be jam-packed with an extensive range of the very latest Life Fitness strength, cardio and functional fitness equipment.  It will also have a new exercise studio featuring a range of challenging and innovative fitness classes. The centre will boast two superbly refurbished squash courts and a sports hall fitted with the latest Junckers wooden floor, LED lighting and excellent new changing facilities.

LED will be holding Open Days on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th January from 10am to 4pm, where people can come along and see the facilities, speak with clubs about their activities and enjoy membership offers and competitions.

Westlands Sport and Fitness Centre will be open between 6.30am -11pm Monday - Wednesday, 6.30am-10.30pm Thursday, Friday and 9am-6pm Saturday, Sunday.

Everybody can use the facilities, either on a pay as you go basis or through flexible individual and corporate membership offers that also enable you to use Goldenstones Leisure Centre and all of LED's facilities across South Somerset and East Devon.
