Celebrating a sporty forty years in Wellington
7:00pm Saturday 28th September 2013 in News
STAFF at Wellington Sports Centre celebrated its 40th anniversary last weekend.
The centre offered free taster sessions and a 12-hour marathon of fitness classes on Sunday to mark the occasion.
It is 40 years since the facility was opened by Sir Roger Bannister, who famously ran the first sub-four-minute mile.
Sports centre manager Gavin Brooks told the County Gazette: “A lot of laughter and fun was had by all.
“During the 12-hour fitness class marathon the place was rocking like it was 1973 all over again.
“As a result of the success we’re looking to run more family fun sessions and are also hoping to start fencing sessions in the near future.”
