A wonderful squash, fitness and leisure club for sale in the sought-after coastal town of Torquay Devon. With 4 x squash courts, dance studio, 2 x gyms, function room, large car park, spacious 3 x bedroom apartment on the 1st floor and all sitting in ¾ acre of grounds. This former country retreat is presented in overall good condition and offers functions, events and members’ social gatherings and is widely supported locally. This successful freehold business is ideally situated close to the town centre and with good road links to all parts of the region. Operated by the owners from a distance with a brigade of full and part time staff, this turn-key business is being offered for sale due to retirement. Early viewings are highly recommended
These freehold premises are located on Barton Road, Torquay, Devon, which is a short walking distance to the town centre, seafront and harbour. The location is within easy access from all sides of the Bay and a short distance to the A380 dual carriageway, linking the nearby Cathedral city of Exeter. We believe this is a complete package and there is nothing locally to compete with what is on offer at this club. The nearest squash club is 45min away. Nearby there are two railway stations as well as Torquay’s main bus station.
The business is being run with a management team who report to the owner who lives off site. The team of staff work successfully to create a welcoming environment, which results in very good member retention. The four quality squash courts, fitness classes and social events are busy but we, the agents, feel this would be an ideal time for new / fresh ideas to expand on the already impressive turnover. Actual income trading figures will be made available following a formal successful viewing.
