In partnership with Cardiff Council, refurbishment work is about to begin at Better, Fairwater Leisure Centre, Cardiff. Beginning Monday 24th September 2018 and over the coming months, we will be investing more than £450,000 into the centre, to provide a more modern and dynamic facility. The investment will include:

  • Combining the current gym and studio space to create a much larger gym
  • Equip the new larger gym with brand-new Technogym equipment
  • Converting two existing squash courts into a brand new fitness class studio
  • A full refurbishment and redecoration of the reception area


Initially work will begin on the new fitness class studio on 24th September with 2 squash courts being closed to the public. Works to the new gym will commence on 15th October when the current fitness class studio will be closed. All fitness classes will be relocated to the main hall during this period.


The current gym will relocate into the existing fitness class studio on 12th November up until 23rd December. The gym will be closed to customers for two days for the new equipment to be installed. Closer to the closure dates, we will be in touch with customers to confirm the exact dates of closures.

Signage will be in place to direct customers accordingly. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience that the building work may cause and hope to have your refurbished gym and studio back open by January 2019.

Dates may be subject to change and further updates on the progress of the refurbishment can be found on our web page.
