New year, new gym – all change at Rugeley Leisure Centre


Residents in Rugeley can now enjoy state-of-the-art equipment and a quality fitness experience following the completion of a £500,000 investment at Rugeley Leisure Centre.

It brings the total investment in leisure centres in Cannock Chase to more than £1.5M following the redevelopment of Chase Leisure Centre in early 2019.

Both Rugeley and Chase Leisure Centre are managed by Inspiring healthy lifestyles on behalf of Cannock Chase District Council.

Managing Director of Inspiring healthy lifestyles, Pete Burt said: “This latest development sees first-class leisure and fitness facilities being delivered at Rugeley Leisure Centre and furthers our aim to help our customers live healthy and happy lives in a leisure environment that is friendly and inclusive.”

Councillor Christine Mitchell, Portfolio Leader for Culture and Sport said: “We are excited to have yet another newly refurbished leisure facility in Cannock Chase District.

In 2019 Rugeley Leisure Centre also celebrated a hat-trick of accreditations having received Excellent in Quest UK Quality Scheme for Sport and Leisure and IFI (Inclusive Fitness Initiative) Mark, and Swim England Learn to Swim Provider Accreditation.
