“The completion of these acquisition[s] means that Viva Leisure now owns and operates 36 locations across the Australian Capital Territory, regional NSW and regional Victoria,” Viva Leisure Managing Director and CEO, Harry Konstantinou said.

The company will immediately begin converting its clubs including the installation of member and staff management systems, online joining portal, self-service portal for members, and fully automated front-end and back-end systems.

Viva Leisure is fast-tracking to operating or, at least, committing to 50 locations by the end of 2019.
