LED's Exmouth Leisure Centre wins prestigious national award!

LED's Exmouth Leisure Centre wins prestigious national award!

The team at Exmouth Leisure Centre are very proud to have won a prestigious national award - UK Active 2018 Centre of the Year for the South Region

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 and East Devon District Council, 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 Training 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 assurance 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 back in May

Every year UK Active presents awards to leisure providers and initiatives throughout the UK in a number of categories. Competition for these awards is fierce with some of the biggest names in leisure being shortlisted

Simon Findel-Hawkins, Leisure Manager at Exmouth Leisure Centre, said:

“Thanks to the funding from Sport England and support from East Devon District Council, which made this project possible, LED has been able to transform Exmouth Leisure Centre. Our loyal customers and committed team of staff have created a community and state of the art facility of which Exmouth can be very proud. It was great to see Exmouth featured in a national event and winning the South Region award, but I also understand we were only 2 marks off winning the national centre of the year! A fantastic achievement!”

The team at Exmouth Leisure Centre would like to thank everyone who voted for us!
