Health and fitness centre operator David Lloyd Leisure is investing more than £1million in its club at The Havens on Ransomes Europark in Ipswich.

It will include expanded facilities within the DL Kids area which will now offer a sports hall for group play, two new activity rooms and an outdoor space, allowing younger members to be active whatever the weather.

For fitness enthusiasts, the club is installing two new studios, one group cycling and one Mind and Body, to provide members quality environments in which to exercise.

The club is also creating a new DLicious café/bar, including a DL Kids section featuring a soft play frame area, a business snug for people wishing to catch up on work after working out and an adults-only lounge for those wishing to unwide and relax. The club’s function suite and cinema room have also been refurbished.

David Lloyd Ipswich general manager Shiv Patel said: “We are very excited to be able to offer our community these stunning new facilities for the whole family, which will support them in leading active healthy lives as well as providing a superb environment in which to relax and unwind from the stresses of everyday life.

“There will now be something special for everyone to enjoy; younger members will benefit from the new DL Kids facilities, the whole family will be able to enjoy a healthy, balanced meal together in the new DLicious cafebar, and members can unwind in the adults-only lounge as well as catch up on emails in the business snug. And for group exercise enthusiasts, the new studios will provide the perfect space to help achieve any health and fitness goals.

“David Lloyd Leisure’s investment in Ipswich demonstrates its commitment to providing the best health, sports and leisure facilities for all ages and abilities. The team cannot wait to welcome both new and existing members to enjoy the enhanced offering along with all of the club’s extensive facilities, services and expertise,” added Shiv.
