SLM Ltd to Begin Operating Scarborough's Leisure Facilities

Sports and Leisure Management Ltd

Sports and Leisure Management Ltd is to begin managing leisure facilities in Scarborough and Whitby from the 1st October 2015, following approval from Scarborough Borough Council.

As we revealed in August SLM Ltd, which operates under the Everyone Active brand, has been given the go-ahead to begin managing the council’s leisure facilities, which includes Whitby Leisure Centre,

Scarborough Sports Centre and Scarborough Indoor Pool. Discussions are also on-going with Pindar School to include Pindar Leisure Centre in the arrangement.

SLM Ltd was selected by Scarborough Borough Council to operate leisure facilities on its behalf in July 2015, under a 10 year contract.

The company will operate Scarborough Sports Centre and Scarborough Indoor Pool until 2017, when they will both be replaced with the brand new Leisure Village. Once opened, SLM Ltd will then manage the new complex.

The Leisure Village, which will be home to Scarborough Athletic Football Club, will include a wide range of state-of-the-art facilities, including a brand new football ground, a 25 metre swimming pool and a learner pool, a four-court sports hall, squash courts, a 60-station fitness suite and an aerobics studio.

As part of the contract, Whitby Leisure Centre and potentially Pindar Leisure Centre will also receive investment for improvements by the council and SLM Ltd.

David Bibby, SLM Ltd’s Managing Director, commented:

"We’re delighted to begin managing the current leisure centres in Scarborough from October. We have extensive experience of successfully operating leisure facilities in the north east, on behalf of local authorities, and our aim is to deliver the same standard here in Scarborough and Whitby."

"We’re already working closely with colleagues at each of the four centres and we’re excited to develop our partnership and for the fantastic developments ahead."

Cllr Andrew Backhouse, Scarborough Borough Council Cabinet Member for Leisure, Tourism and Culture, said:

"We’re really pleased that all the arrangements are now in place for SLM Ltd to operate our leisure facilities from next month. The company’s proven expertise in the leisure services industry, combined with the planned improvements to facilities and the forthcoming new Leisure Village, will be a winning combination aimed at getting everyone active and living healthier."
