Fresh Strokes

Fresh StrokesFirst opened by members of the TV Gladiators in 1997, the pool at Ribby Hall Village holiday park, Wrea Green, Lancashire, is used by members and visitors alike. With a staff team of 25, the annual operation bather load is somewhere between 280,000 and 300,000. The pool underwent a major upgrade as part of a comprehensive refurbishment by World Leisure in 2017. The new pool features new slides including a 48m interactive play slide. World Leisure also refurbished the splash pool and added an interactive aqua deck play structure, with tipping buckets and integral slides. A themed GRP toddlers’ pool links into the splash pool via a slide or steps. World Leisure also installed a new sauna, steam room and feature showers, with all new filtration and controls.

The 48m interactive play slide allows members and guests to climb a tower to the top of the slide, which then takes them out of the building and back inside again. The complex also has the benefit of a lap pool which allows site to run a large swim school during quieter periods. Boasting adjoining state-of-the-art spa and sauna facilities, the venue has always been a popular water fun venue, offering water slides and water play features alongside regular swim facilities.
