The centre is managed by Places for People on behalf of Gosport Borough Council.  


James Dumper, general manager at the centre, said: "We are excited to be a finalist in one of the industry’s most recognised awards. Our mission is put our heart and soul into creating active places and healthy people, by providing them with the means and the motivation to help them get there in the ways they love most. At Gosport Leisure Centre, we are pleased to be able to offer a range of activities and a service that encourages all members of the community to participate and enjoy a more active and healthy lifestyle."


Stevyn Ricketts, head of the Streetscene team at the council, said: "I’m absolutely delighted that Gosport Leisure Centre has been recognised as a finalist in these prestigious awards. We are proud that it offers a high-quality service for all members of the local community."
