New changing facilities and a free discount card are among the benefits coming to residents as part of Hammersmith and Fulham’s new leisure contract.
The good news comes after Hammersmith and Fulham council recently renewed its agreement with charitable social enterprise GLL to run the Hammersmith Fitness and Squash Centre, Lillie Road Fitness Centre and the Phoenix Fitness Centre and Janet Adegoke Swimming Pool.
“We’re delighted that these changes will help residents have more opportunities to live healthier, active lives, in better, modernised facilities,” said Cllr Wesley Harcourt, the council’s cabinet member for the environment.
GLL will invest in the local community through both financial and in-kind support to projects that encourage local people to get active, learn and play together.
This will also include support for 49 of the borough’s burgeoning young athletes, to help them achieve their sporting goals.
