Formerly the St. Agnes Primary School, the building on 18 Louisa was purchased by the Polish Church next door in 2007 when the school was made redundant by the Catholic School Board. Close to one year later in 2008, a group of former table tennis enthusiasts gathered together to purchase the building from the Church, which did not have any further plans for the building... and the idea of a sports and health centre was born.
The initial goal of the Gladstone Sports and Health Centre (GSHC) was to give the Canadian national table tennis team a permanent training centre, to create a centre mainly for non-profit organizations with affordable rent and ultimately — to create a sense of pride in the community. Of course all potential tenants are welcome, but the main emphasis is on health, fitness, dance and sports oriented tenants.
In July 2010, GSHC replaced the derelict and abandoned building with a dynamic and vibrant sports and health building.
For an interesting overview of how 18 Louisa has 'metamorphosed' into what it is today — the Gladstone Sports and Health Centre (GSHC) — check out:
GSHC is home to a variety of different businesses.
These include fitness, dance, high tech/software/security companies, therapies, amateur sports associations, health and beauty technicians and more. In addition to the Ottawa Ballet School, our newest tenants focussing on fitness include the Ottawa Table Tennis Club and Topshape Fitness Studio.
