Brait, the South African-based owner of Virgin Active Health Clubs, has reported that its revenues grew 13% in the financial year to the end of December 2017, to R10.5 billion (US$ 790 million).
In an updated first quarter 2018 trading update, Virgin highlighted “good membership growth in Q1 with closing membership up 1% year on year”.
According to Virgin, the group has added 40,000 new members globally since January, 40% more than in the same period last year.
The Virgin Active Group includes 233 clubs in eight countries including Australia, Singapore and Thailand with 1.2 million members worldwide.
