Chance to take part in focus groups on leisure centres

Places Leisure has been running Wokingham Borough Council’s leisure centres for a year now – and to mark the anniversary, is seeking volunteers to join focus groups to give feedback on the service.


As the council’s contractor, Places Leisure runs:

  • Loddon Valley Leisure Centre

  • Carnival Pool Leisure Centre

  • Ryeish Green Sports Hub

  • Arborfield Green Leisure Centre

  • St Crispins Leisure Centre

  • Bulmershe Leisure Centre


During its first year, Places Leisure has invested £2million at Loddon Valley Leisure Centre to create a 100-station gym and a soft-play area that will open later this month. Further investment has lead to the demolition and current rebuild of Bulmershe Leisure Centre and Carnival Pool Leisure Centre.


A series of focus groups are being organised to see what centre users think of these investments and the way Places Leisure is operating. The focus groups will be at:

  • Wednesday May 15  at Arborfield Leisure Centre

  • Thursday May 16 – Carnival Pool Leisure Centre

  • Thursday 6th June – Loddon Valley Leisure Centre

  • Tuesday 11th June -St Crispin’s Leisure Centre

  • Thursday 13th June – Ryeish Green Sports Hub


All the sessions will be from 6.30pm to 8.30pm and refreshments will be provided. 


Executive member for Environment, Libraries and Leisure Cllr John Halsall said: “Places Leisure has put a lot of investment into our centres and will be carrying out further improvements but it is always important to get the customers’ views and these focus groups are a good opportunity for that.


“I urge those who use the centres or live nearby to sign up for one of the sessions to give us their views.”


To sign up for one of the focus groups sessions please email sports@wokingham.gov.uk.
