WIT Arena received the top award of ‘outstanding’ and was short listed from the winners of this section to go on to win the Overall Best Fitness Facility
The annual Ireland Active awards took place in Druids Glen Wicklow recently with the WIT Arena retaining their title as the ‘Overall Best Fitness Facility in Ireland’. Ireland Active is the governing body which set standards, policies and procedures in the Health and Fitness Industry and is aligned with Sport Ireland to make Ireland a healthier nation.
'Exceeded and outstanding'
The award structure is a nationally accredited Quality Award and is awarded under the criteria; achieved, exceeded and outstanding. WIT Arena received the top award of ‘outstanding’ and was short listed from the winners of this section to go on to win the Overall Best Fitness Facility for the second year in a row. The award is based on external audits carried out by Ireland Active. Facilities are marked under the following headings; health and safety, HR procedures, customer service, inclusion, standard, hygiene and cleaning.
Speaking after receiving the award WIT Arena manager John Windle couldn’t hide his delight; "We are thrilled to win this award for the second year in a row. I credit this continued success to the high standards we set ourselves and which our excellent team deliver daily. I am delighted to accept this award on behalf of all the team at the WIT Arena."
Half a million
The WIT Arena opened its doors in 2016 and since then has seen almost half a million people through its doors. As well as their successes with Ireland Active the WIT Arena also scooped the ‘Nutramino Health & Fitness’ Award Winner for best in Retail in a Gym/Leisure Centre earlier this year. This is a fantastic achievement for a facility in its infancy and has been a very welcome addition to Waterford and the South East Region.
