On Friday 15 June, Aquatics and Recreation Victoria (ARV) held their annual industry awards night. ARV is Victoria’s peak industry body for aquatics and recreation. The awards recognise people and facilities that have gone above and beyond what is expected. With a guest list exceeding 700 industry professionals, Glen Eira Leisure had 10 nominations across the 20 categories. In a triumphant night, our team walked away with 3 wins!

Glen Eira Sports and Aquatics Centre was awarded Facility of the Year. “Every Body Welcome” is our vision which is underpinned by our purpose of enabling Glen Eira residents to be healthier and more active all year round. The successful year was highlighted by the opening of Transcend Spa and Wellness, providing members with a complete holistic lifestyle and wellness option. Other achievements included launching Virtual Fitness, reducing energy usage, and initiatives such as Active Parks.

On the night, Rachel Engelhardt was recognised as the Most Valuable Employee and Libby Dewar had her contributions acknowledged as the Fitness Instructor of the Year. It has been a wonderful 12 months for the Glen Eira Leisure team, and we look forward to seeing what the remainder of 2018 has in store for us. Congratulations to all nominated and the our winners on the night.
