Edenbridge Leisure Centre and Sevenoaks Leisure Centre welcomed the public to their open days on Monday 1st May, successfully motivating the local community to stay active.
Olympic gold medallists in the Modern Pentathlon, Joe Choong MBE and Kate French MBE, made appearances and greeted guests at the events, that were jam-packed with fun, free activities.
Managed by Everyone Active in partnership with Sevenoaks District Council, the centres were a hive of sporting activity, with free activities including everything from Gym and Swim, Group Exercise, Feel Good Suite and Sports Hall activity taster sessions.
Upwards of 500 new memberships have been sold, across fitness and swim, and including new members of Lullingstone Park Golf Course – showcasing the demand from the local community to get back into the leisure centres and prioritise their health and fitness.
Hasan Romel, contract manager at Everyone Active, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled at how many people from the local community took the time to come down to Edenbridge Leisure Centre and Sevenoaks Leisure Centre at the weekend, for an exciting day of sporting fun.
“It was fantastic to see so many members of the community try out different activities and meet two very inspiring sports stars, who thrive when encouraging others.
“We hope the open day encourages individuals to come back to the centres and share their experience with others, so we can continue to drive health and wellbeing within the local community.”
Preceding the successful re-opening of Edenbridge Leisure Centre and Sevenoaks Leisure Centre, Lullingstone Park Golf Course was also reopened on Saturday 22nd April.
