Everyone Active, which operates Vale Farm Sports Centre on behalf of Brent Council, is celebrating after taking home the headline accolade at a top industry awards night.
The ukactive and Matrix Flame Awards are the health and fitness sector’s largest celebration of innovation and excellence and Everyone Active scooped the most coveted award of the night, Operator of the Year, at a ceremony hosted on June 28 in Telford.
The award recognises its high levels of performance across all aspects of operation and it is the fifth time the leisure operator has achieved the title, having won the award last year and on the three consecutive occasions in 2010, 2011 and 2012.
The achievements come as Everyone Active gears up to celebrate its 30th birthday later this year and as the longest-established leisure operator in the UK, it has a wealth of experience working alongside local authority partners to deliver exceptional services and state-of-the-art facilities to communities across the country.
Managing director, David Bibby, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have achieved the status of Operator of the Year for the fifth time. All of our colleagues from across the company strive to give customers the best service and experience possible when visiting our sites.
“I’m very proud that their hard work and dedication has been recognised by others in the sector.
“Everyone Active has expanded rapidly in recent years, and now manages more than 150 leisure facilities and cultural services across the country.
“As we grow, we are determined to bring top-class facilities to more communities and ensure we help as many people as possible to improve their health and wellbeing by getting active.”
The Flame Awards recognise leisure centres, health clubs, group operators and individuals that have demonstrated exceptional standards across all areas of the operation. An estimated 800 guests from the health and fitness industry were at the event to watch Everyone Active receive its accolades.
