Casa Leisure to manage the Christmas Island Recreation Centre

Casa Leisure to manage the Christmas Island Recreation Centre
December 22, 2014

Casa Leisure has announced that it will operate the Christmas Island Recreation Centre, under contract with the Commonwealth from 1st January 2015.

Christmas Island Recreation Centre is located at Phosphate Hill, Christmas Island and was constructed by the Federal Government in 2004. The Centre includes a 25 metre swimming pool, recreation hall, gymnasium, crèche, cafe and ancillary rooms.

A community engagement strategy will be implemented to expand the programs and services delivered for the Christmas Island community.

Looking forward to the new contract, Casa Leisure Manager Rob Heinjus explained “we are excited about securing the management of the Christmas Island Recreation Centre and look forward to delivering local health, education and social outcomes, and increasing patronage of a valuable community asset.”

Casa Leisure is committed to employing and training local residents for the day-today operations of the facility.

Heinjus adds “a clear opportunity exists to develop the skills of the local workforce, and through professional management build community capacity through leisure programs.

“Having spent quality time in Christmas Island over the last week, it was great to see a community that is as genuinely excited as we are about new opportunities at the Centre. “We can’t wait to get started on New Year’s Day 2015.”

Casa Leisure Pty Ltd is an experienced provider of community sport and recreation facilities management. With 23 years experience in the operation of multi-purpose leisure complexes across Australia, Casa Leisure brings invaluable professional expertise to all facets of the leisure industry, but specifically facility management and community engagement.
