Quest Excellent

Dorking Sports Centre rated Excellent by leading quality scheme

We are please to announce that we have achieved an ‘Excellent’ rating in a tough assessment by Sport England’s leading national quality scheme, Quest.

Quest is the best-known improvement programme within the leisure industry and its rigorous assessments challenge even the very best leisure centres in the UK.

In order to achieve Quest Plus, Dorking Sports Centre went through a two-year process, with a mystery visit and two-day assessment in year one, and a second mystery visit and one-day review in year two. Areas of exceptional achievement included the centre’s Health and Wellbeing objectives and its high standard of Lifeguarding.

Geoff Evans, Contract Manager, Places for People Leisure said: “We are very proud to be recognised as an excellent centre. This is a fantastic achievement and a real team effort. Quest is much more than a tick-box exercise; it is an ongoing programme to improve our facility for both staff and customers, and a great way to demonstrate our achievements.”

Councillor Lucy Botting, Executive Member for Wellbeing said: “One of our key priorities is to offer our residents an excellent range of opportunities to be more active and improve their health and wellbeing. We are therefore very pleased that the operators of the Dorking Sports Centre, Places for People Leisure, in partnership with MVDC, have received recognition for providing excellent leisure facilities and customer service to the local community.”
