Fusion Lifestyle, the UK’s leading sports and leisure charity, revealed the results of its latest investment in Devon’s community sports provision this weekend as Meadowlands Leisure Centre re-opened its doors to the public.

Work at the centre, designed and delivered by Fusion, has seen the addition of a top-of-the-range gym fitted with the latest cardio equipment, free weights, and functional fitness kit plus a brand new, purpose-built studio, with tailor-made space for classes including yoga, Pilates, spinning, circuits and Les Mills Body Pump. A new café completes the transformation, overlooking Tavistock Park, beside the River Tavy.

The new facilities join the centre’s leisure pool, water slide, lazy river and fountain, and brand new poolside changing facilities, to ensure there are plenty of ways for the whole community to get active.

The Meadowlands transformation forms part of a multi-million-pound investment to improve six

Devon leisure centres by Fusion, South Hams District Council and West Devon Borough

Council. Work has already been completed at Quayside Leisure Centre (Kingsbridge),

Parklands (Okehampton), Totnes Pavilion and Dartmouth Leisure Centre as part of a

three-year programme. Other locations being redeveloped include Totnes Pavilion and Ivybridge

Leisure Centre where the most dramatic transformation is underway, with the construction of a

brand-new swimming pool with a retractable roof.

Simon Smith, Contract Manager, Fusion Lifestyle said: “The completion of the work at Meadowlands Leisure Centre will significantly enhance the experience for our customers and those in the local area. The investment will ensure this popular leisure centre can be enjoyed for years to come by the community. We are committed to nurturing and maintaining local sports and leisure facilities, which includes making a serious investment in their improvement and long-term up keep.”

Cllr Robert Sampson, Lead Member for Commercial Services at West Devon Borough Council, said: “I’m delighted to see these works completed, and the new facilities that are available to West Devon residents and our visitors. The Health and Wellbeing of our residents is one of our top priorities, and I look forward to seeing people from all over the Borough enjoying their new amenities.”

Anthony Cawley, Commercial Director of Fusion Lifestyle added: “We are delighted to have opened the doors to Meadowlands Leisure Centre this weekend. This is a real milestone in our programme of investment across our Devon portfolio. We are passionate about providing great facilities for all the communities we operate in and continued investment is key to delivering this.”
