Stratford Leisure Centre named country's best

Laura Kearns 30th Jun, 2017

THE BEST leisure centre in the country is right here in Stratford.

Stratford Leisure Centre, which is managed by Everyone Active on behalf of Stratford District Council, was named Leisure Centre of the Year at the 2017 Flame Awards for the health and fitness sector.

Judges were impressed by the centre’s high-quality facilities and commitment to improving health and wellbeing in the local community.

It has continued to improve its facilities after undergoing an extensive refurbishment in 2015, and a recent £250,000 upgrade to its fitness suite.

Everyone Active’s contract manager at Stratford Leisure Centre, Gareth Wagg said: “We are absolutely delighted to be named as Leisure Centre of the Year. There were some great centres on the shortlist, so it is a huge achievement to have won and a testament to the team’s tireless hard work.

“All of our colleagues strive to give customers the best service and experience possible, and we’re over the moon that their efforts have been recognised by others in the sector. 2017 is a poignant year for Everyone Active, and I’m delighted that we have been able to mark it by taking home this accolade.”

Coun Mike Brain, spokesman for community and technical services added: “This is fantastic news for Stratford Leisure Centre and Everyone Active, and is testament to the investment and refurbishment that has been made at the centre.

“We are very proud of our leisure facilities across Stratford District and this family facility offers a gym, pools, classes, swimming lessons, climbing wall and much more. The award is apt recognition for the staff who work hard all year round to bring the best services to the people of Stratford-upon-Avon and the surrounding area.”
