South Oxhey Leisure Centre celebrates one year anniversary with free open day

Updated: 19 August 2021

Try out a  wide variety of activities and sports - completely free.

Last September, South Oxhey Leisure Centre, managed by sports and leisure operator Everyone Active in partnership with Three Rivers District Council, unveiled its impressive extension and brand new facilities. However, unfortunately due to Covid restrictions, the team was unable to host an event to showcase the improvements.

This year, to mark the one year anniversary, the centre will be hosting a variety of free activities for families in the area to enjoy. The event will take place on Saturday 4 September and include free swim sessions in the new 25 metre pool, and group exercise classes such as dance, spin, body blast and circuits. Other sessions will also be held for people to try out, such as martial arts and gymnastics.

The centre’s upgrade included new group exercise studios, a brand new group cycling studio and a new multipurpose room which is used to serve more of the community for a multitude of activities.

Some of Everyone Active’s Sporting Champions will also be making an appearance and hosting ‘taster classes’ in their sport. This will give children and adults the opportunity to try something new whilst learning from a trained professional athlete.

John Sewell, Everyone Active’s area contract manager, said: “We are so excited to finally be able to show off our new facilities with a free open day.

“We’d encourage anyone who has not yet had the chance to see the centre for themselves, to come along on Saturday 4 September and try something new.

“It has been a tough year for the industry, so it’s great to be able to shout about something positive and we are proud to be able to provide a fun day of activities for the community to enjoy for free.”

Cllr Chris Lloyd, Lead Member for Leisure, said: “If you’ve been inspired by Team GB’s success in the recent Olympics to raise your fitness or take up a sport such as swimming, cycling, or gymnastics, this is a great chance to find out how you can achieve your goal. The new facilities at South Oxhey Leisure Centre are superb with a huge variety of exercise classes suitable for all abilities.”
