With close to 200 members of the facility management company’s team in attendance, the Annette Kellerman Aquatic Centre was named Belgravia Leisure’s Facility of the Year at its annual awards dinner last Thursday.

Located in the suburb of Marrickville in inner western Sydney, the Centre, which had earlier, been named Belgravia Leisure’s NSW Facility of the Year Award for the second year running, is a vibrant and popular community hub.

The awards followed Belgravia Leisure teams from across Australia and New Zealand having come together to workshop and plan, network and celebrate successes at their conference held as part of the National Sports Convention.
