Belgravia Leisure secures Singleton Council fitness and sport facilities management contract
Singleton Council's recreation and sport facilities are to be managed by Belgravia Leisure after the Melbourne-based business secured a new management contract for the Singleton Gym Swim and Singleton Heights Sports Centre.
Councillors last week awarded the tender for the management of the centres to Belgravia Leisure for a three-year plus two-year term. The contract also has the potential to be extended depending on a proposal to redevelop the Singleton Heights Sports Centre.
The YMCA currently manages both centres.
Anthony Egan, Singleton Council's Director Corporate and Community Services, said the new contract would take effect from 1st July 2019.
Egan stated "Council has had a very successful relationship with the YMCA over a number of years, including during the $6 million upgrade to the Gym Swim recently to make it a leading leisure centre in the Hunter.
"However, that project has highlighted a significant opportunity to redevelop the Singleton Heights Sports Centre, which is 45 years old and reflects its age in appearance, configuration and maintenance requirements.
"A redevelopment proposal to transform the Heights facility into a multi-functional active recreation and sports centre was a significant component of the invitation to tender for the management contract, which ran earlier this year.
"The community will have the opportunity for input into what the redevelopment will look like when the process gets underway."
Egan said there was also scope for further improvements to the Gym Swim to highlight facilities beyond the swimming and program pools, adding "Belgravia has a wealth of experience in the leisure industry and currently operates 170 recreation centres across Australia and New Zealand.
"Council is looking forward to a repositioning of both centres to include new community-focused programs and activities to enhance the lifestyle opportunities available for residents and visitors to Singleton."
