Active Tameside welcomes Community Leisure UK rebrand

Published: 23rd November 2018

Community Leisure UK memberThe umbrella organisation for sport, leisure and culture trusts, formerly Sporta, has changed its name to Community Leisure UK. The rebrand, which launched on 20th November, aims to tackle the false perception of being a solely sport-focused body.

The new name also reflects the focus that the organisation’s members have on improving the physical and mental health and wellbeing of communities across the UK, breaking down barriers to social inclusion and working with national and local partners to support all people in their communities.

As a Community Leisure UK member, Active Tameside invests every penny generated back into its community services and facilities, working in partnership with the council, health services and community organisations to make health and fitness facilities accessible for all.

Cate Atwater, Chief Executive of Community Leisure UK, said: “If we want public leisure and cultural facilities and services to still be there in ten years, we need to enable local authorities, policy makers and community leisure trusts to protect and invest in those services. And it’s more than financial investment – investment is about building a true, transparent, outcome-based and long-term partnership.”

Ms Atwater added: “Real and significant opportunities exist through trusts to develop thriving, local, community leisure services delivering socio-economic and health benefits that underpin national and local government policy. We know our communities and we know that through national and local collaborations, community-focused partnerships, we can ensure we have the public facilities and services necessary to improve the health and wellbeing of current and future generations.”

My family experienced the Hyper Bowling last week. My children absolutely loved it and wouldn’t stop talking about it, it was such great fun & good how any age can win. I was impressed by the price and how clean everywhere was…

The staff! I’d still use Active Hyde’s gym if the facilities were rubbish and the price was high. There is always a cheerful person on hand to provide help and advice, both on site and on the phone.


10/10 great facilities and location. Excellent instructors and friendly staff.


The gym and reception staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, always happy to assist… I would highly recommend the gym to anyone who is looking for a friendly, professionally run gym with a great atmosphere that caters to all ages and abilities.

I am grateful to the staff at Tameside Wellness Centre for understanding my difficulties, especially since they are invisible. But believing and supporting and being kind to me has made me more determined to continue with my passion for life and remaining active as best as I can…
