Benefiting from over 100 years’ of combined experience within the health and leisure club industry, ‘David Lloyd Clubs’ and ‘Talwalkars Better Value Fitness’ have made the exciting decision to come together as David Lloyd Club Talwalkars to bring our first exclusive members only club in Asia to Pune.
David Lloyd, the former captain of the British Davis Cup Tennis team, had a vision to deliver a high quality fitness and leisure offering which was a place that had something for the entire family to enjoy. In Heston, on the edge of London, in 1982, David opened the doors to his first club. 38 years have since passed and now David Lloyd Clubs is the largest Health, Fitness and Racquets operator in Europe with 114 clubs and over 600,000 members.
Mumbai, 1932 and Mr. Vishnupant Talwalkar had a similar vision to enhance the lives of the people of his city through fitness and opened the very first Talwalkars Club.
