OnePT Rochdale has been named as club of the year at this year's ukactive Awards, the second year the operator has claimed victory.

The centre was one of 20 winners revealed during a virtual awards ceremony on 12 August, which was attended by more than 500 viewers online.

This year’s awards combined entrants from 2020 and 2021 following the postponement of last year’s event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

onePT claimed the coveted National Club/Centre of the Year Award for its site in Rochdale and can now boast of securing back-to-back victories, following success in 2019.

Other winners include leisure centre operator Serco Leisure, which picked up four awards, including the Outstanding Organisation of the Year Award.

Technogym won the Supplier of the Year Award, while awards were also handed out in categories such as diversity, healthy communities, digital transformation, and design and build.

This year’s awards recognised organisations’ demonstrating an exceptional response to COVID-19.

Sport Aberdeen won the Developing and Supporting Communities During COVID-19 Award for its SPACE project (Supported Physical Activity for Care Experienced). The project utilises the positive benefits of sport and physical activity to help care-experienced children and young people reach their full potential.

Leisure-net won the Business Continuity & Success During COVID-19 Award for the delivery of its online event in March, which judges said demonstrated an excellent delegate experience, filled with personal touches throughout.

The awards also saw individuals from across the sector recognised.

This year’s Physical Activity Hero Award went to Jess Robson from Run Talk Run, who the judges recognised for her tenacity in establishing the running and walking club which invited people to talk about their mental health. The group has grown across the UK, attracting 250 volunteers.

The Outstanding Leadership Award was given to Dave Candler, chief executive of STA, for growing the organisation substantially in terms of numbers.

Huw Edwards, CEO of ukactive, said: “We know the ukactive Awards play an important role in celebrating the success of our united movement each year, but this year’s entries were particularly inspiring, considering the challenges faced by every organisation and team in our incredible sector.

“Congratulations to each of the winners and to everyone who took part by reflecting on their achievements and recognising their colleagues – this awards ceremony really showcased the very best our sector has to offer.

“I hope we can all get together soon at the ukactive Conference to toast the winners in person, and to continue our work together towards what is clearly a bright future for our industry.”
