The £2 million refurbishment of the Oasis Leisure Centre has reached an exciting stage with new owners Moirai Capital Investment Ltd and site managers GLL bringing a new level of fitness provision to the town.
The launch of an extensive gym and fitness centre in January has seen new members flocking to join this impressive facility which offers over 100 separate stations and the full range of modern fitness equipment. Photos above and below by Richard Wintle of Calyx.
There are also three separate studios for everything from RPM spinning to body pump. Brand new changing rooms and fast track admission through Oasis reception are also major attractions.
GLL will be holding a launch weekend in February to celebrate the completion of the new gym when there will be a range of special offers, including 3 months free with annual memberships and no joining fee.
The reception area is being completely transformed to improve access to the centre, offering much more protection from inclement weather.
The iconic glass roof over the swimming pool will be replaced this Spring. The second largest dome structure in Europe when it appeared on the town’s skyline 35 years ago, it will be rebuilt to the existing design using modern materials.
Later in the year the swimming pool changing rooms will be completely refurbished to bring them up to modern standards of comfort and hygiene.
Plans for ski slope & multi-purpose entertainment centre
2014 will see the submission of the planning application for the indoor ski slope and music venue that Moirai propose for North Star.
Along with the refurbished Oasis, the attractions will make Swindon the UK leader in terms of leisure provision on one site. Forward Swindon will be overseeing this project on behalf of Swindon Council.
Chairman of Moirai Capital Investments, Martin Barber, said: “These are exciting times. We promised a new future for Oasis Leisure Centre and that is precisely what we are delivering.
"The new gym raises the standard of fitness provision in Swindon to a new level. And the rest of the £2 million refurbishment will ensure the future of this wonderful building for many years to come.”
