LEISURE centres in the district are fighting fit.
St Nicholas Park Leisure Centre in Warwick and Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre in Leamington achieved an ‘excellent’ score in a two-day Quest Plus Assessment.
Quest is a continuous improvement tool for leisure facilities and sports development teams, managed by Right Directions in partnership with Leisure-net Solutions, on behalf of Sport England.
The centres, run by leading operator Everyone Active in partnership with Warwick District Council, scored highly in many areas within the mystery visit and formal assessment elements.
The core modules included operational management, customer journey, environmental management, compliance declaration, tackling inequalities and managing the team.
Alex Fuoco-Lang, Everyone Active’s contract manager, said: “We are delighted with the outcome of the Quest assessment and believe it is testament to the hard work of the centres and their teams.
“To be recognised for not only operational excellence, but also the positive impact the centres have on local communities, makes us really proud.
“At Everyone Active, we are committed to providing quality facilities for all ages, abilities and interests, and we hope the local community can feel confident knowing their leisure centres have this added stamp of credibility.”
WDC leisure spokesman Coun Jim Sinnott was equally pleased.
He added: “These results give us confidence that these facilities are operated and maintained to the highest of standards for all customers.”
