We are delighted to announce that our eagerly anticipated Fitness Centre will open on Monday 24th September.

The facility will be well-appointed with a 20m swimming pool, gym with Technogym equipment, an exercise studio with free classes, a saunarium (latest combination of a sauna and a steam room) and treatment and changing rooms. 

The opening will be celebrated with an open weekend on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd September. Members will be invited to enjoy tours of the new facility which is included as part of membership.

From Monday 24th September Members will be able to book inductions after which, they will be able to use the gym and swimming pool. One week later (Monday 1st October) the studio classes including Pilates, aqua fit and salsa and therapies such as beauty, physiotherapy and podiatry, will be available, making the new Centre fully operational. 

The comprehensive new facility will be open to Members with a ‘soft launch’ over an initial four-month period while Member usage is analysed. The Centre will be open from 7am until 8pm Monday to Friday, and 8am until 4pm on weekends and bank holidays. 

Fitness Centre Manager, Adam Powell said “The opening is the culmination of a lot of hard work and planning - and it looks fantastic. I can’t wait to open the doors and see members enjoying it. 

“The opening of the Fitness Centre is momentous for the club, not least, because it was Roy Finlay the Club Founder’s dream to have a swimming pool for Members back in 1929 and now that dream is a reality”. 

The state-of-the-art Fitness Centre is the latest benefit that members of Phyllis Court can enjoy. Other benefits include access to a huge variety of exciting events including Henley Royal Regatta and preferential rates on bedrooms and on dining in the restaurants. There are over thirty clubs and societies known as Interest Groups, from rowing to jazz and croquet to wine appreciation. 

Members also benefit from access to a network or over 100 reciprocal clubs across the world. We have five function rooms, the largest of which can accommodate 300 people, and members enjoy free room hire for private events as part of their membership. 

The Fitness Centre is exclusively available to Phyllis Court Members during the soft launch period. We are nearing the current limit of 3250 members, after which a waiting list will be established.
