Newham Leisure Centre collects award
PUBLISHED: 11:00 24 December 2018
Newham Leisure Centre has been named MyLocalPitch's Outstanding Sports Facility Of The Year for 2018.
The facility is managed by NewhamActive which works tirelessly to support locals to enjoy an active lifestyle around the community, whether providing an ideal place to enjoy sports, host events or enrol on a personalised fitness regime.
Earlier this summer, the centre threw its weight behind its fitness mission by opening up access for 24 hours a day, for locals to use the badminton courts and gym at any time.
Newham’s fitness enthusiasts also benefit from indoor and outdoor running tracks, a swimming pool, cross-fit studio and a women-only gym.
This yearly award is an extension of the monthly accolade, acknowledging the highest quality and standout grassroots sports venues.
MyLocalPitch’s grassroots users voted online for their favourite venue and the award, in its third year, is judged on pitch quality, venue amenities and customer experience.
Newham Leisure Centre Business Development Manager Richard Lukombo said: “I am honoured to receive this award on behalf of my team, they have been excellent providing a top quality service and prepping the facilities for our users around the clock.”
