XCEL Leisure Complex Opens its Doors to Over 1,000,000 Visitors
DC Leisure staff and customers are celebrating a milestone achievement at the Xcel Leisure Complex in Walton on Thames, Surrey. Annual figures have confirmed that for the first time ever, the Xcel Leisure Complex received over one million customer visits last financial year.
Peter Kirkham, Development Director at DC Leisure says; “We are very pleased to have reached this milestone which has been a target of ours since we opened Xcel in 2006. It really does enforce our ongoing commitment to encourage more local people to be more active, more often. It shows what can be achieved when the right teams, possessing the necessary drive, skills and experience, come together to work in true partnership. Welcoming over one million visits in a single year is a huge achievement that we are all extremely proud of.”
The award-winning Xcel Leisure Complex was designed and built by DC Leisure in 2006. Operated in partnership with Elmbridge Borough Council, the new Complex replaced the ageing Elmbridge Leisure Centre and Walton Swimming Pool sites. To give this most recent achievement some context, the two former sites combined were visited less than 300,000 times a year. Also of note, other places of interest which are visited as often as Xcel include Stonehenge and Westminster Abbey.
Xcel boasts an eight court sports hall, three squash courts, two multi-purpose studios, health and fitness suite with 120 stations, permanent children’s soft play area, crèche, four-rink indoor bowls hall, a 12-metre climbing wall for all ages and abilities and a cafeteria. In addition, one eight lane 25m swimming pool and a large teaching pool with a moveable floor caters for parents and babies and group water workout classes. Competitions and galas can also be accommodated due to the large spectator area.
