Ashville College Harrogate £3m Sports Centre refurb

Sports centre refurbishment for Ashville College

Ashville college is a leading independent, day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 3 – 18 in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

In order to provide better facilities to their members within the Sports Centre, it has currently undergone a £3 million refurbishment.  Phase one of the project was completed in the autumn term of 2016 and included the refurbishment of changing areas. Phase Two is now finished and includes a state of the art Matrix installed gym.

Further work included the construction of a second storey – providing two further dance/fitness studios, refurbishment of the swimming pool and reception area (including cafe) and a redesign of the external facade.

Matrix has installed some top of the range kit that includes, the Connexus, the S-Drive self-powered treadmill, Matrix rowers, a 3 series treadmill, bike and elliptical. As part of the deal Matrix will provide a days master training from Matrix Master Trainer, Matt Gleed, to show the sports centre staff and also the school sports staff how to use the equipment correctly and relevantly to their specific field of expertise.
Ashville College are pleased to offer great value club membership to the public. Easy to get to and with free on-site parking, the Club is ideal for anyone who is looking for a low cost health and fitness solution. All inclusive adult, student and family memberships are available, as well as pay as you go options.

Ashville Sports Centre also boasts two large sports halls, and the following facilities:

  • Two squash courts
  • Badminton courts
  • 30m swimming pool (currently closed for refurbishment)
  • Fitness Suite
  • Boxing area
  • Climbing wall
  • Changing rooms
  • Bouncy castle
  • TRX suspension training
  • Core bags
  • Kettlebells
  • Battle Ropes

The whole service from Matrix has been excellent. We had the challenge of finding appropriate equipment to use as a school and also a private members sports facility. Matrix have helped advise, design and recommend items to suit this purpose and the end result is stunning. From Power racks to cross trainers, Matrix have supplied high class products and made our fitness room a very attractive place to work out.
