Award Nominee's!

Exmouth Leisure Centre shortlisted for a prestigious national award!

LED are very proud to have reached the final of the UKactive Awards 2018 under the Regional and National Club / Centre of the Year category

To qualify for entry the centre had to demonstrate that it had made substantial progress and exceeded expectations in the last 12 months

Managed by LED Leisure Management and supported by Sport England the facility has benefitted from over £3 million of investment in the last 3 years and been completely transformed to a modern, accessible and vibrant hub for sport and leisure for all

As a result, the member base has increased by 1,000 (30%) and attendances by 100,000 (35%), significantly enhancing engagement with young people, parents, disabled and referral groups. Ground breaking work with FutureFit has ensured the team are well trained and ahead of the game with professional development whilst enabling the delivery of new member services. Recognised by Quest - Sport England’s leading quality scheme - as ‘Very Good’ in its first ever assessment, the customers and staff believe this facility to be worthy of wider recognition

Exmouth Leisure Centre received a huge number of votes from customers and supporters which led to the short-listing last month
