The Edge’s award nominations
The Edge is shortlisted for Regional Club/Centre of the Year (North) and Marketing Campaign of the Year award with UKActive. It is also up for Education Facility of the Year and Best Membership Campaign.
These nominations follow the success of The Edge’s marketing team at this year’s CUBO awards where they won Marketing Campaign of the Year.
The Edge’s impact in the wider community
This is an unrivalled year for the Edge seeing it shortlisted for five awards across three bodies with 1 award already won. The NFA submission for Education Facility of the Year was particularly complex as it required every part of Sport and Physical Activity (SPA) service at the University of Leeds to contribute how the the centre is integral to their success.
These short-listings clearly demonstrate that the recent investment from SPA into The Edge is reaping dividends. As a facility that recycles membership fees back into facility improvements and community sport and physical activity programmes, it is a vindication of the direction SPA is taking.
Head of Sport and Physical Activity Service, Suzanne Glavin said;
I’m so pleased that our good teamwork is being recognised through these short listings. We strive to contribute positively to all our users, from our Gryphons GO kids camps that provide a valuable safe space for children to learn, to our Strength & Conditioning gym where are world class student athletes hone their physical skills, we really are here for all.
The UK Active awards are on the 26 October this year, with the National Fitness Awards follow almost exactly a month later on the 24 of November. Fingers crossed the Edge goes into Christmas with some additional shiny objects to show for it’s good work.
