River Park centre plans unveiled

Winchester City Council is considering the options for a revamp of the city's 40-year old River Park Leisure Centre at North Walls.

The options for the future of the centre include refurbishing the existing facility; a new build to the north of River Park; a rebuild occupying part of the current site; and two different sites at Bar End playing fields.

Council figures indicate that 'modest improvements' to keep the centre going for 10-15 years would cost between £6-7m, whilst the cost of a modern, high quality replacement would be at least £14-17m. However, it is felt that since interest rates are relatively low at the moment, the necessary borrowing would be a viable proposition in the short term.

As part of the process, a public exhibition is being held at both the DC Leisure-run facility and at Winchester Guildhall from 18 November until 2 December. Residents will also be able to discuss the various alternatives with staff and councillors at the Guildhall on 26-27 November, with any comments being considered by the full council in December.

The capitalist model may create wealth in the short term, but if it doesn’t address the broader issue of serving society, it risks losing its licence to operate. If inequality grows, that might force more difficult change

In London, people are familiar with the boutique concept, but elsewhere it’s still relatively new, so initially it was a challenge to educate people in Manchester about our benefits, when they were used to paying budget club prices

As an operator, you need to pick your price point and do what you can for that, but do it really well. We have great quality facilities, but what we offer isn’t luxury

I think we’ll start to see more pay-as-you-go concepts, as they offer better value for money and flexibility. HIIT will stay popular and we will see more use of data in workouts to engage people

Anyone looking into the boutique market thinking it’s going to cost them ‘X’ needs to double that figure. it isn’t enough just to give your club a new lick of paint and new flooring every 10 years

You can do lots of great stuff, but find there are still large numbers of people who don’t engage. If you can start to understand why, then you’re onto something
