Andover Leisure Centre follows carnival yellow brick road to fitness

Dorothy, her red shoes and her friends from Oz, will be taking part in the Andover carnival on Sunday to encourage more people to follow the yellow brick road to a fitter and healthier lifestyle. The Andover Leisure Centre float will feature Dorothy (in real life, studio instructor, Lucillia Holder), the Tin Man (swim school coordinator, Tammy Dewhurst), the Lion  (Lisa Stevens from customer services) and the Scarecrow (played by lifeguard Ed Peszkowski).


Award for Andover boy with the bravest of hearts

A young boy from Andover who has serious heart problems has won a special award for his bravery, resilience and determination. Eight-year-old Archie Cook was presented with a special Southern Water Achiever of the Year award by Olympic gold medal winner, Duncan Goodhew.


Fitness Expo highlights local talent

Valley Leisure has evidence of tremendous talent being identified and nurtured at the Andover Leisure Centre. A key initiative for unlocking local talent in this area has been the introduction of an annual Fitness Expo that was introduced in 2013. The Expo is open to members of different age groups and this year saw 30 competitors aged from early 20’s through to their 50’s competing in the various disciplines. The event consists of a Fitness Challenge, Body Building and Power Lifting.


Merlin gets a brand new kingdom

Merlin's Kingdom, the children's indoor play centre at Andover Leisure Centre, has had a £45,000 makeover to become an even better place to play, particularly for the under 5s.

As part of the refit, the soft play equipment and the café seating area has been refreshed and modernised.


The brave rebuilding of beautiful bodies

Bodybuilding is often thought to be an activity only enjoyed by the ultra-fit and super-honed. But the Expo held at the Andover Leisure Centre recently revealed - for some - there is much more to it than the mere desire to show off a washboard stomach and rock hard guns.

The Expo is held annually by the leisure centre to give members a challenge to aim for and the chance to highlight their progress in the gym.
