Wimbledon Leisure Centre is transformed
A new spa facility has opened as part of a £2million investment at Wimbledon Leisure Centre.

A thermal spa experience consisting of an Aroma Steam Room, Sauna, Ice Fountain, Hammam benches with foot spas, hydrotherapy pool, Monsoon Shower, Bucket Shower and Relaxation Lounge creates the centerpiece in the spa area.
More than 50 health, beauty and relaxation treatments are available in partnership with leading International spa brands Elemis; La Sultane de Saba; Jessica and Fake Bake. And a range of spa LONDON Signature treatments include Body treatments, Facial treatments, Massage treatments, Finishing touches, Prenatal and Spa Packages.
As part of a wider upgrade to the leisure centre, there are also new changing facilities and other building improvements.
The spa is now open for members and for non-members alike, who can pay-as-they-go.
Councillor Krystal Miller, Mayor of Merton said: "I am delighted to open the new spa and think that the excellent facilities will be a great addition to the leisure offer in Merton. As a local resident myself I am looking forward to trying out what the spa has to offer."
Councillor Nick Draper, Merton Council cabinet member for community and culture said: "How exciting to have such fantastic facilities so locally. Being a council that thinks big has enabled us to bring West-End spa quality to Wimbledon at prices local people can afford. Why not pop on down to see what your local centre has to offer?"
Simon Sen, Regional Manager for GLL, said: "We are thrilled to be able to offer our customers and local residents these fantastic fitness and spa facilities. Our main aim was to utilise the unused space and create something that could give Merton residents a private spa experience at an affordable price to relax in and enjoy."
