Maesteg Sports Centre celebrates 40 years with £400k investment
Posted on: Thursday 02 March 2023
Maesteg Sports Centre is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year with a £400,000 investment in new equipment and workout areas.
Funded by Bridgend County Borough Council (BCBC), Sport Wales and Halo Leisure, the upgrade includes a larger gym area with new cardio machines, a dedicated strength and conditioning space, a wellness zone, a new exercise studio and training/workshop spaces. Improvements in the changing rooms will also include an accessible changing space.
The sports centre first opened its doors to the public on 1 March 1983, and since Halo Leisure commenced its partnership with BCBC to operate the centre in 2012, it has registered an estimated 1,584,823 attendances and delivered well over a million gym workouts.
To celebrate the sports centre’s 40th anniversary, you can join up during March 2023 for 40p, that’s a potential saving of between £10.50 and £31.10 depending on the membership package you are on.
Members can enjoy the gym, exercise class programme and a soon-to-be-completed strength and conditioning zone, while for children, there’s JumpInGym soft play and Bounce and Play sessions.
Maesteg Sports Centre’s General Manager Karl Paterson said: "We are thrilled to bring the vision of a modern leisure centre to life, thanks to the investment from BCBC, Sport Wales, and Halo. The completion of phase one of the upgrade has already brought in a new array of equipment, larger gym and workout areas, and improved weight-lifting section, with members already expressing positive feedback. As the upgrades continue, our goal is to encourage even more members of the local community to lead active and healthy lifestyles."
It is fantastic to celebrate the 40th year of Maesteg Sports Centre and be reminded of how much it has to offer all ages.
This £400,000 investment is enhancing and expanding fitness facilities for the community, and I look forward to seeing the completion of the next phase.Council Leader Huw David
