Horizon’s Free Open Days


July 11th 2016

Horizon’s Free Open Day at Havant and Waterlooville Leisure Centres

Waterlooville Leisure Centre Open Day – Saturday 30th July 16 – 10am – 4pm
Havant Leisure Centre Open Day – Saturday 13th August 16 – 10am – 4pm

To help celebrate the 2016 Olympics, and to encourage greater participation in sporting activities, Horizon Leisure Centres will be holding two Open Days this summer at Havant and Waterlooville Leisure Centres. The days will give the local community a chance to sample some of the many facilities and activities on offer at the centres.

The sessions will be free of charge and will run at different times throughout the day to allow people to drop in and have a go. Sessions will include activities in the pools and play centres, plus exercise classes and sports sessions.

Over the last few years Horizon Leisure Centres has invested heavily in refurbishing facilities and providing developments to both of the centres.

Havant Leisure Centre opened a brand new gym in summer 2014 and recently the play centre has been refurbished to become Horizon Oceans of Play, a fun ocean themed indoor play centre. Waterlooville Leisure Centre was given a massive extension in summer 2015 which saw the opening of a new three-storey gym, exercise studio, World of Play indoor play centre, themed to different countries around the world, and a café.

Both gyms are award winning, with Havant gym holding the Gym of the Year title in 2015 and Waterlooville taking over the mantel for Gym of the Year in 2016. Over the period of the Open Days, a special time-limited membership promotion will be running to encourage more people to become more active!

Horizon Leisure Centres is a registered charity and a not-for-profit social enterprise with a vision to make life better for our local communities. Any surplus it makes is reinvested in improving the facilities and keeping entrance fees low.

Horizon’s Chief Executive, Howard Broad, said “The Open Days provide a fantastic opportunity for those in the community unfamiliar with the wide-range of leisure facilities and activities we offer, to come in and have a look around and take part in an activity free of charge. Hopefully, people will enjoy the experience and want to return to take-up regular exercise, which will help improve their fitness, health and well-being”.
