South Oxhey Leisure Centre celebrates success one year on from refurbishment
23rd September 2021
To mark the one year anniversary of its impressive extension and brand new facilities, South Oxhey Leisure Centre, managed by sports and leisure operator Everyone Active in partnership with Three Rivers District Council, hosted a free open day for the local community to enjoy.
The fun filled day, which took place on Saturday 4 September, was a huge success with over 500 people attending. Nearly 100 of those took part in one of the free exercise classes on offer, and almost 250 visitors enjoyed a free swim in the brand new 25 metre pool.
Throughout the day a variety of free activities were also on offer such as martial arts and gymnastics classes, football taster sessions, face painting, dance groups and a bouncy castle.
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.
John Sewell, Everyone Active’s area contract manager, said: The weekend was a great success and we’re thrilled to have had such a fantastic turn out. We’ve already had many new members sign up so would urge anyone who is still interested in trying out our facilities to visit us and chat to a member of our friendly team.”
Cllr Chris Lloyd, the council’s Lead Member for Leisure, added: “I was delighted to visit the open day after attending South Oxhey Parkrun. It was great to see people enjoying themselves. It was good to see new members sign up to the excellent facilities. I would like to thank all the Everyone Active staff who made the visitors welcome.”
