Queen's Club gym gets a refurb

Queen's Club in West Kensington, London, has undergone a refurbishment to its fitness facilities.

Established in 1886, the club was named after its first patron Queen Victoria and is one of the first Lawn Tennis and Racquet clubs in the world. The facility, owned by members from the Lawn Tennis Association, has had its gym doubled in size to 1,800sq ft (1,672sq m). The new gym, converted from former meeting rooms, has been fitted with £50,000 worth of Cybex kit, including 15 CV stations and strength equipment from the Eagle and VR1 Dual ranges.

There is also a dedicated stretch area and two treatment rooms for massages, osteopathy and physiotherapy. The old gym has been transformed into an aerobics studio. The club also offers 45 lawn tennis courts - 12 grass, 10 indoor, eight shale and clay, four plexi and four artificial grass courts, in addition to two racket, two regular tennis and three squash courts. The club also offers hospitality facilities, including a restaurant, a cafe, a museum, and President's Room - located within the Members' Clubhouse.
