Saddleworth Pool and Leisure Centre is officially one of the top performing leisure centres in the UK after receiving a prestigious award from Sport England‘s National Benchmarking Service (NBS).
The scheme allows local authorities to compare the performance of their sports and leisure centres with that of equivalent facilities elsewhere in the country.
The centres are measured against national benchmarks across a number of key performance indicators (KPIs), which range from attracting users from a wide range of backgrounds, activities available and ease of booking to the cleanliness of changing rooms and activity areas, helpfulness of staff and overall customer satisfaction.
Operated by Oldham Community Leisure (OCL), Saddleworth Pool and Leisure Centre received the Overall NBS Award after achieving the top score in the National Benchmarking Service KPI‘s.
“This is a fantastic achievement and a testament to the hard work and dedication of the whole team at Saddleworth,” said Joanne Smallwood, general manager of Saddleworth Pool and Leisure Centre.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be recognised as one of the best performers in the country. It shows that excellent performance can be achieved even in tough economic times.”
