Olympic Effect Sees Barnsley Premier Leisure Have Successful Year

Friday January 25 2013

THE Olympic effect of 2012 had an incredible impact at several Barnsley Premier Leisure sites.

Figures released show that the Metrodome received 50,062 swimmers - a huge increase of 49% on the previous year.

Since 2012 the number of gym memberships across Barnsley Leisure Centres has increased by 32% from 7,202 members to over 10,000.

Back in February 2012 the Barnsley Metrodome opened its highly anticipated £1million water park - Calypso Cove - which saw the overall visitors increase by nearly 7,000 with a footfall of 21,700 visitors during the Easter holidays.

BPL Chief Executive, Tim Wilson said:
“We have had one fantastic year in 2012. A year filled with national pride and success with the Olympics and Paralympics. We hope 2013 is just as successful and continue to offer an outstanding service to our customers”.
