Meadway Leisure Centre showcases improved facilities

Our £40 million investment in modern leisure facilities across the town includes improvements for users of Meadway Leisure Centre.

Hot on the heels of improvement works completed at South Reading Leisure Centre earlier this year, and with work well underway on new swimming pools and facilities at both Rivermead and Palmer Park work at Meadway Leisure Centre in Tilehurst, is now finished. Users of the centre, which is run by GLL on behalf of the Council, will now benefit from:

  • A larger gym area with improved equipment
  • New dedicated studio space
  • Refreshed dry side changing rooms
  • Revamped reception and circulation areas

Phase 2 of the works will deliver refurbished squash courts and wet side changing rooms at a later date.

Local resident, Desmond Kelly, told us: “I'm a regular user of the gym and the swimming pool. I've been coming here to Meadway for the best part of ten years. The old gym was very tired and a bit run down and it's super now. There really is a great advantage to staying fit for your own wellbeing - mental as well as physical because it's social as well as exercise. It helped me recover from an accident very quickly.”
