Wave Leisure secures Sussex sports club

Charitable social enterprise Wave Leisure Trust Limited will begin operating East Grinstead Sports Club (EGSC) from 1 October 2017, taking over from Freedom Leisure.

The West Sussex centre, which was formed in 1989 after the East Grinstead Cricket Club and East Grinstead Hockey Club merged, is set within 33 acres and has both indoor and outdoor facilities, including a gym, sports hall, squash and racketball courts, and hockey, cricket and 3G pitches.

“Our initial investment will be in the EGSC team and we will work to provide a consistent and cohesive service level whilst we listen to the member’s ideas, our team’s thoughts and where the trustees think the club needs to develop,” said Duncan Kerr, Wave’s chief executive.

Jeff Morris, chair of the EGSC trustees, added: “The trustees are extremely happy to be working in partnership with Wave to secure the future prosperity of our club. We believe that working together, we will continue to provide strong leadership and build, enhance and reinforce new and existing relationships with our affiliated clubs and community groups.”

Formed in 2006, Wave manages eight leisure facilities and Newhaven Fort in Sussex.

Freedom Leisure had been operating the facility since 2010.
