The Health Club Awards, in association with Physical Company and USN UK, recognise the best clubs and leisure centres in the UK based purely on ratings from their members and measure the quality of facilities, customer service and value for money.

The gold, silver and bronze winners will be announced at the fourth annual awards ceremony on September 30 at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham.

Everyone Active contract manager for Harrow, Duncan Cogger, said "We are delighted to see Harrow Leisure Centre nominated for this prestigious award.

"I would like to thank all our customers for voting for us, it means a great deal to the team.

"This nomination is testament to their hard work and dedication and I would like to congratulate them on getting to this stage and hope we will be celebrating on September 30!"

Harrow Council’s portfolio holder for community, culture and resident engagement, Councillor Sue Anderson (Labour) said: “I am delighted to hear Harrow Leisure Centre has been shortlisted for the Health Club Awards and hope they go on to win the award for Best Mid-Market Club.

"They have done a fantastic job in improving the facilities and offering an increased range of affordable classes, activity sessions and state of the art sports equipment for all ages and groups in the community allowing them to improve their health and wellbeing."
