Bannatyne Group completes Cookridge Hall upgrade

We promised members to make a significant investment as part of the company’s ambitious plans for all its clubs and we are delivering on that
– Justin Musgrove

The Bannatyne Group has completed a £750,000 redevelopment of its latest acquisition, the historic Cookridge Hall in West Yorkshire.

The operator acquired the building, which dates back to 1721, in January 2019 in a deal worth a "seven figure sum".

The 38,693 sq ft facility is set among an 18-hole golf course – which wasn't included in the deal – and was previously owned and operated by both Esporta and Virgin Active.

Following the extensive revamp, the two-level gym has been refreshed with the installation of a full range of Skill Line Technogym equipment and a functional training area. At the heart of the functional training area sits a bespoke rig designed specifically for the space by ESP Fitness.

Group exercise studios have also received upgrades, including the addition of new Indigo Fitness Aero Bikes. A Bannatyne Spa is planned at a later date.

Justin Musgrove, CEO of the Bannatyne Group, said: “We promised members at Cookridge Hall that we would make a significant investment as part of the company’s ambitious plans for all its health clubs and we are delivering on that.

“The new equipment is of the highest standard and the exciting investment in the gym has greatly improved the health club, bringing it up to date without compromising the unique atmosphere and ambience of the magnificent building.”

The acquisition of Cookridge Hall increased the number of Bannatyne Health Clubs in the UK to 72.
