Aqualink Box Hill wins ARV Facility Management Award
July 6, 2015

Aqualink Box Hill has won the prestigious Facility Management Award at the 2015 Aquatics & Recreation Victoria Industry Awards.

Whitehorse Mayor Councillor Andrew Munroe said Council was delighted that the new state-of-the-art aquatic and recreation facility had taken out the top gong at the awards ceremony.

Mayor Munroe stated “this award is a culmination of the great support and vision by Councillors and Council’s executive team on top of the innovative and outstanding service delivered by the organisation, management and staff on a daily basis.”

The Award recognises overall excellence in the performance of the facility between 1st January and 31st December 2014, taking into consideration business and strategic planning, marketing, customer service, human resource management, innovation, environmental sustainability and continuous improvement.

Mayor Munroe added “the $30 million plus redevelopment of Aqualink Box Hill has already exceeded expectations, with a record number of visitors frequenting the facility and a number of awards already under its belt.,”

Aqualink Box Hill reopened in December 2013 with five heated swimming spaces, including outdoor and indoor 25 metre pools, a dive pool, a family-friendly water-play area with a splash pad and large tipping bucket, as well as a spa, sauna and a warm-water pool, which can be used for injury rehabilitation.

There are more than 120 group fitness classes conducted each week at the facility, an expansive 700 metre² gymnasium, a crèche, a contemporary style café, and a modern sports stadium with three multi-sport courts for social and competitive basketball, netball, badminton, table tennis and futsal.

The 15th annual ARV Industry Awards were presented on Friday 12th June, 

Aqualink Box Hill was featured in the November/December 2014 issue of Australasian Leisure Management.
