Belgravia Leisure takes on Nambour Aquatic Centre management

Belgravia Leisure takes on Nambour Aquatic Centre management
August 20, 2018

Belgravia Leisure, which has been managing Sunshine Coast Council’s Nambour Aquatic Centre since 1st July, has been living up to their business vision of connecting the community to leisure by providing programs that are designed to be enjoyed while getting people active, healthy and involved.

Nambour Aquatic Centre, nestled among the trees in Petrie Park and a short walk from the Nambour town centre, features a 50 metre pool with full length grandstand, 25 metre indoor heated pool, and junior/toddler leisure pool, kiosk and amenities block, for all the community to enjoy.

Sunshine Coast Councillor Greg Rogerson explained that the Council’s Sunshine Coast Aquatic Plan 2011- 2026 guided the current and future provision of aquatic facilities and services, to ensure the needs of the Sunshine Coast’s diverse communities are met.

Councillor Rogerson advised “following an aquatic centre management model review undertaken and endorsed in September 2016, council has tendered for and awarded new leases for seven sites due for lease renewal over the past 18 months.

“Council’s rigorous evaluation process assessed each submission based on key criteria and I am pleased to announce a new 10-year lease to manage council’s Nambour Aquatic Centre has been awarded to Belgravia Leisure.”

“We highly regard Belgravia Leisure’s capabilities and proven track record of professionally operating 28 facilities throughout Queensland and a total of 133 sites across Australia and New Zealand.”

“Belgravia Leisure have provided employment to all current centre staff, with the added benefit of training and career development opportunities, to ensure the same great team are delivering the programs for the community.”

Councillor Rogerson added that the Council had sought an operator that could add significant value to the facility by investing in the construction of additional facilities in line with the centre’s master plan.

As part of the agreement, Belgravia Leisure will contribute $500,000 in capital upgrade costs to develop an improved wet play/splash zone area with works scheduled to commence by year three of the contract.

Anthony McIntosh, Belgravia Leisure’s General Manager of Operations, added “Belgravia Leisure is supportive of this aquatic development in order to offer locals additional leisure opportunities for families.

 “We are proud of our team’s efforts to transition quickly and effectively and look forward to working with the community to develop highly valued aquatic programs and services.”

A new Nambour Aquatic Centre website will be launching soon.
