Horsham’s leisure centres record a bumper year in 2013

Horsham’s leisure centres recorded a bumper year in 2013, with increased attendances illustrating their commitment to getting more people, more active, more often.

The Pavilions In The Park recorded a 6.5% increase in attendances whilst Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre saw a 14.5% increase in overall attendance figures and a massive 54% increase in gym attendances.

Following the award of the leisure contract in November 2012, the centres management, DC Leisure, have invested significantly in improving the facilities. The kinetika gym at Pavilions In The Park has undergone refurbishment with all new equipment and the addition of a studio cycling room. Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre has introduced a new gym only membership package offering better value for money and therefore reducing financial barriers to accessing fitness facilities.

Councillor Jonathan Chowen, Cabinet Member for Arts, Heritage and Leisure comments, “We are really pleased with the increase in attendances at our local Leisure Centres, it’s testament to the great partnership between Horsham District Council and DC Leisure and we look forward to continuing to improve health and wellbeing in the Horsham District in 2014 and beyond”.

DC Leisure Contract Manager Tim Bolton said “The investments DC Leisure has made in the centres are really paying off. It's fantastic that so many local people use the centre's for their fitness and leisure purposes. I'm particularly pleased to see the use at Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre has increased from last year”.

An exciting 2014 is also in store with new developments including the addition of a high ropes assault course and refurbished health suite at Pavilions In The Park and new activities including Swim4Health and SWIMTAG.
