An increasing number of local authority-owned leisure centres are being upgraded with spa facilities, as operators embrace the emerging trend to provide members with wellness.

Leisure operators and suppliers, such as Everyone Active, Malling Leisure Trust, Sentinel Leisure Trust and Pulse Group among others, have identified that council partners are increasingly expressing an interest in spa and wellness facilities.
