Swimmer Ali Phesse to launch Helston Leisure Centre Open Day

20th October 2018

Successful national and international swimmer Ali Phesse will be officially launching Helston Leisure Centre Open Day on Saturday 20 October.

The free all-day event showcases the result of a £450,000 refurbishment project that has just been completed. The new facilities include a 42-station gym with high spec Technogym equipment and a state-of-the-art fitness studio.

Ali lives in Helston with her partner Rob and three daughters. A senior national level swimmer from a young age, she originally retired from competition at 21 before returning age 43 and going on to win gold at the British Masters Championships. In 2017, she won three medals in five events at the World Masters Championships in Budapest and, in the last two years, has managed to break two British Masters records.

In addition to her impressive competitive career, Ali runs her own fitness business and is a member of GLL’s Sports Foundation which supports talented athletes throughout the UK. 

The official opening will take place at 10am and be followed with free gym taster and challenge sessions, free fitness classes and £2 swims for all the family.
