£1 million refurbishment programme announced for The Shrewsbury Club

Our award-winning Shrewsbury health and fitness club is to embark on an extensive £1 million refurbishment programme.

It comes after a deal was agreed with a local private investor to buy out Downing VCT, a London-based venture capital business, previous part-owners of Mosaic Spa & Health Clubs group, who owned The Shrewsbury Club.

The facilities at The Shrewsbury Club will be upgraded to include extending the swimming pool to include a new chill out zone and vitality pool, full refurbishment of the changing rooms, extending the gym to incorporate some new cutting-edge, interactive, fitness equipment and a new look Hub cafe bar. 

A soft play area for younger children next to a lounge for parents and an interactive zone for teenagers with play stations and table tennis will also be created. The club’s management believe that offering facilities for all ages will attract more families to take up memberships. Work is expected to start later this summer.  

The Shrewsbury Club will still be operated by Mosaic, and all of the 60 plus staff will remain with the company.

Dave Courteen, Managing Director of the Mosaic Group, who has also personally invested in the deal, said he was delighted to have secured the support of a local investor to take the club forward.

Mr Courteen said: “It’s really exciting to be able to partner with a local investor who shares our passion for Shrewsbury and Shropshire, whilst also having the same drive in wanting to develop a high quality, luxurious and friendly health club.

“We recognise that we needed more investment to take the club to the next level, and we believe the club with all the enhanced facilities is well positioned to look after the diverse needs of all our members.

“In these days of Xboxes, smartphones and PlayStations, it is really important that children have the opportunity to appreciate the many benefits of an active lifestyle. With our diverse range of programmes, classes and facilities we are in a unique position to be able to offer families the chance to be active together within the one club.

Mosaic have owned The Shrewsbury Club, which also hosts two prestigious international tennis tournaments each year, since 2011.
