Oak Tree Leisure Centre wins again at prestigious awards event

Oak Tree Leisure Centre have done it again! They've won the Regional Club/Centre of the Year (Midlands) award at the ukactive awards, held in Manchester on June 6th.

Ukactive stages the premier leisure industry awards event in the UK, so to win in any year is big news for a centre, but to win two years on the trot is almost unheard of. The Midlands region covers such a large area, including hundreds of leisure facilities, so Oak Tree's achievement is even more noteworthy.

Oak Tree Leisure Centre is operated by the MDLT and its operating agent, Serco Leisure.  The partnership also runs the Rebecca Adlington Swimming Centre, Water Meadows Fitness and Swimming Centre, and River Maun Recreation Centre, all on behalf of Mansfield District Council. 

Geoff Waller, Chair for MDLT said:

"This is tremendous news! We were overjoyed at winning in 2018, but to return in 2019 and win again is extra special. This result is testament to the hard work done by so many people at the centre - this is a proud moment for MDLT."

Cllr Andy Burgin, Portfolio Holder for the Environment at Mansfield District Council, said:

"This is great news - not just for the leisure centre staff but for our residents who enjoy the many different sports and activities on offer at Oak Tree.

"The council is committed to providing opportunities to enable residents to live a healthier lifestyle and improve their physical and mental wellbeing. We are proud to have such high-quality facilities and dedicated staff in our district." 

Adam Spooner, Senior Duty Manager, added:

"Once was wonderful but to win twice is just amazing. I would like to thank every member of staff at Oak Tree. You all, in some way, have contributed to this amazing moment!"

Oak Tree Leisure Centre offers a wide range of facilities and activities, from gym memberships and badminton, to trampolining and gymnastics for children. The centre also offers a range of workout classes including LES MILLS™ BODYPUMP, plus Forever Fit and Indoor Group Cycling. For everything the centre has to offer, visit its website:
