Members votes count as club receive prestigious Bronze Award

The Shrewsbury Club has won the Bronze Award for a premium club in the West Midlands at the prestigious Health Club of the Year Awards.

What makes the accolade, sponsored by Physical Company, USN UK and Les Mills in partnership with Health Club Management magazine, even more special is that the competition judges were the club’s own members.

Now in its fourth year, the Members’ Choice Health Club Awards received 35,000 votes from members rating their club on the quality of facilities, customer service and value for money.

More than 400 club entries came from a mixture of small independents, public leisure centres, hotel clubs and some of the best known brands in the industry.

The winners were announced at a glamorous awards evening which took place at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham with 300 guests attending the black tie event hosted by TV presenter Mark Durden-Smith. 

He said: "Just taking part in the Health Club Awards says an awful lot about your club. It sets you apart from the competition and sends a clear message that you are passionate about what you do and you believe you offer members the best experience possible. 

"You have the one secret weapon that’s key to the success of any club and that’s really good people. It’s people that make the difference and it’s people that really connect with customers."  

Mark Reynolds, regional manager for Mosaic Spa and Health Clubs, the owners of The Shrewsbury Club, said it was pleasing recognition of what the Sundorne Road venue offers.

“We are so excited to have won this award," he said. "The whole team works extremely hard to deliver a high standard of service and value for money. This award reiterates that most of the time we get this spot on.

"It's the first time we have entered the competition so to come third in the West Midlands when you consider the volume and the quality of the competition is fantastic. 

"Naturally, we will be vying to beat third place next year so will continue to review and improve our programmes and services. Thank you to all our members for their support."

Simon Brown, MD of the awards, added: “We believe the best health clubs provide a balance in three key areas which are the range of facilities, customer service and value for money.

"The Members' Choice Health Club Awards are designed to find out which clubs are excelling in these areas and recognising them for their efforts. We think there’s no better endorsement for a club than honest feedback from customers that are using the facilities." 

The Shrewsbury Club is a leading health and fitness club which offers a huge range of fitness classes as well as excellent facilities.

They include aerobics/spin studios, a large gymnasium with the latest Technogym equipment and Wellness Key system, a 20m swimming pool complete with sauna and steam room, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a beauty spa and a restaurant.

The club are also regularly asked by the LTA to stage professional tennis tournaments featuring rising stars of the European game.
