Press Release

25 May 2023

Leisure Centres go from strength to strength

Fareham Borough Council is pleased to announce that Fareham Leisure Centre and Holly Hill Leisure Centre, both run in partnership with Everyone Active, have reported significant membership and footfall increases for the year 2022/23.

When compared with pre-covid figures from 2019/20, membership at Holly Hill Leisure Centre is up 6% and Fareham Leisure Centre up an impressive 39.5%. Annual footfall at Holly Hill is up by 4% when compared to 2019/20 and up by 39.5% at Fareham. This is attributed to the significant capital investment works which have been completed in both locations in recent years.

Fareham Leisure Centre has been performing particularly well, with swimming lesson attendance up by 14% when compared to pre-covid rates. Visitors to its newest features such as the splash pad, climbing wall and soft play areas are also all up by more than 220% when compared to their first six month of opening from October 2021 to March 2022.

Executive Member for Leisure and Community at Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Sue Walker, said: “I am delighted to see that Fareham Leisure Centre and Holly Hill Leisure Centre are thriving, following the turbulent years caused by covid-19.  These centres are not only gyms or pools, but a social hub for so many residents and the new facilities are clearly enticing more and more people through the doors.”

Ryan Grant, Contract Manager at Everyone Active commented: “We’re so pleased to see all the investment and hard work from the team here translated into these impressive attendance figures. We were delighted to welcome people back following the pandemic and it’s great to see the local community benefiting from all the fantastic facilities we have to offer. Long may it continue.”
