From Storeroom to Gym

Funded by a grant of over £350,000 from Wigan Council, the historic Pelican Centre in Tyldesley has benefitted from the creation of a new gym and a multi-functional community hall to complement its swimming pool offering. 

Used as a storage room for the last thirty years, the billiard room, part of the original 1920’s to 1960’s cinema and billiard hall, was transformed into a 110 sq m fitness facility showcasing a selection of equipment from leading fitness equipment supplier and manufacturer Precor, including four Next-Generation treadmills, a corner Queenax functional training unit and various dual use resistance pieces.  Shower and changing rooms have also been built along with a mezzanine level that features a multi-functional meeting room/community hall and classroom.
