Gladstone supplies a wide variety of different markets, including local authorities and private sector fitness clubs. You can find out more about all of these markets below.

Local Authority

Gladstone Health & Leisure has been working with local authorities throughout the UK and Ireland for over 30 years, and our business is grounded in a thorough understanding of public sector leisure: in fact, many of our employees come from a local authority leisure background. Our product release schedule is aligned with the local authorities' financial year, and it avoids peak leisure periods, so leisure centre staff have plenty of time to implement system updates.



Gladstone Health & Leisure has been working with leisure trusts since the first one was formed in the early 1990s, and in many cases, our highly skilled professional services teams were involved in supporting the transition from local authority to trust. Today, half of all leisure trusts in the UK and Ireland use Gladstone software daily to manage all of their leisure facilities.

Leisure trusts are not-for-profit and most are charities, with a mission to offer affordable and accessible services and deliver outcomes of local well-being, public health, social cohesion and economic growth. We lead and encourage participation by providing a wide range of programmes and applications for community culture and leisure.


Private Sector Fitness

Gladstone Health & Leisure manages some of the largest and most well known fitness brands in the market, including Virgin Active, The Third Space, Total Fitness and DW Sport. In the competitive fitness arena, we offer solutions that enable 24/7 customer service, including fully integrated membership sign-up and payment management.


Enterprise Leisure Contractors

Leisure contractors operate and manage local leisure centres on behalf of local councils. The leisure contractor brings large-scale experience in leisure operational achievement, activity expertise, service excellence, colleague development and management skill, and has an ability to deliver value for money as well as increasing participation. Gladstone Health & Leisure supplies SLM, Leisure Connection and Parkwood, representing 60% of all UK leisure contractors.



University sport and recreation offers some of the highest concentration of top class sports training facilities found anywhere in the world. Universities utilise the breadth and depth of Plus2 to support diverse groups of customers, from elite athletes to students, recreational trainers, or groups looking to host an event.
