Tapping into this market will help us to grow the business quickly and especially families who are cash rich but time poor.”On the uniqueness of the Club she further added “Our mission is to give our members not only a premium quality facility and exceptional service but a true sense of belonging. We will have an extensive range of facilities that are built to the highest standards and experts in sports and fitness coaching available to support our members. In addition our leisure facilities allow members to relax, unwind or work and spend time with their family in high quality surroundings. We have a focus on families and by ensuring that families can spend time together or apart at the club we believe that we will truly offer a different experience to all other clubs.”
Alongside excellent facilities the club will offer outstanding coaching programmes for children and there will be expertise available across the club to help members learn to play, develop their techniques and reach their goals.
