SSMG announces United Swimming partnership and North Ryde facility’s business award win
November 16, 2020

Sydney Sports Management Group (SSMG) has announced a new commercial partnership with United Swimming and that its North Ryde Fitness + Aquatic has secured named Winner Fitness Services in the Northern Districts Local Business Awards.

Located in the heart of North Ryde's corporate district, the SSMG-manged North Ryde Fitness + Aquatic provides a range of sporting and fitness services with facilities includes a group training fitness facility, outdoor five-lane x 25 metre heated swimming pool and a multi-sports court facility offering football, netball and volleyball.

Explaining that SSMG’s mission in managing the facility is to provide a variety of programs to cater for the needs of both the local residential and corporate markets to give our clients a healthy work/life balance, SSMG Chief Executive, Richard Price advised “I am very pleased with this recognition as the award is sponsored by City of Ryde, Lane Cove & Hunters Hill Council which will assist SSMG’s profile building.

“This is another step on our journey to building a quality management company.”

SSMG’s new partnership with United Swimming, the dedicated swimming and sports education arm of the TAESEUNG Group, will operate at North Ryde Fitness + Aquatic.

Specialising in designing and providing swimming programs to people of all ages and skill levels,  United Swimming swimmers have excelled at the NSWPSSA and All Schools Swimming Championships as well as the School Sport Australia Swimming Championships.

With United Swimming currently operates their programs at seven different locations across Sydney,  United Swimming and SSMG are actively seeking aquatic and swim school growth opportunities in the Sydney market.

Price added “SSMG advocates recreation delivery is becoming more and more diverse and complex.

“We believe that in order to deliver maximum optimisation, best practice programming and ensure the delivery of a quality customer experience, a collaborative delivery model is the way of the future.”
