Rob Burgwin - Black Country School Games Tennis Competition - June 2015

Sports Development
Our day was thoroughly enjoyable; your organisation of the tournament was immaculate in every respect. The focus on respect was outstanding and followed by all competitors. The games themselves were excellent and great to see an abundance of talent on show especially from the school that won. The format certainly works and great to see...

Heather Manser - Customer Review - June 2015

Smethwick Swimming Centre
Really enjoy the variety on offer! Can't think of any additional services that could be provided to improve Smethwick Swimming Centre! The one card membership is extremely good value for money! Membership gives you the option/variety of training at a number of centres and the opportunity of having a personal trainer. I train...

Liz Waters - Customer Review - May 2015

Portway Lifestyle Centre
The staff are great, the classes are really high level. The instructors are the best I've met and I've been going to gyms for about 10 years. The instructors obviously love what they do because they are really enthusiastic. The personally training sessions have got me to where I want to be with lots of new ideas of fitness to try. I think the...

Nigel Bentley, The Coseley School - Customer Review - May 2015

Tipton Sports Academy
Just to say another massive thank you to both you (Lee) and Craig for yesterday's tennis competition. It was just such a great event, well organised, well presented and totally geared towards the kids who attended.

Meenakshi Ganeriwala - Customer Review - May 2015

Tipton Sports Academy
Thank you so much for helping to arrange training for Khushi at the academy for the few days that we were there. I thank you and your team from the bottom of my heart. Craig and his team had been fantastic with Khushi. Khushi is a quiet but very hard working and persistent child. That she was interacting with them freely proves that they are...

Kerry - Customer Review - May 2015

Haden Hill Leisure Centre
I can't do without my morning gym fix with the team at Haden Hill. Since taking their advice on diet and doing 1-2-1's with them in the gym, I've seen a dramatic change to my body and lifestyle. People comment all the time on the difference in me. Also, they can tell if I miss a session as I am moody. I honestly love training with Hayley, Matt and...

Pupil at Ormiston Forge Academy – Work Experience Review – March 2015

Portway Lifestyle Centre
Thank you for all the efforts put in by the staff during my week of work experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and learned plenty about what work is like in a lifestyle centre. Not only was it very beneficial to me for the future but also the fact I got to work with adult services was great. It was very different and I never thought...

Sports Development
It was just such a great event, well organised, well presented and totally geared towards the kids who attended. Many of the school staff commented on how good the warm up was, the way you explained things to the kids, the way you got the leaders working, and just the whole event being so good from start to finish. It was just...

Bhangra Burn Off - Customer Review - December 2014

Sports Development
Bhangra Burn Off has been very good to attend because it gives a beneficial effect to my concentration & rhythm. It helps me understand my body more. To improve, I would suggest more explanation of the steps and a better breakdown of the steps. This would help me to understand it better and be able to do it at home. Great fun, friendly...

Bike Fest - Customer Review - October 2014

Sports Development
James had a wonderful week at the pump track. James has only just taken his stabilisers off but this course has increased his confidence. The instructor was calm, encouraging & great fun. Thank you very much. The free bikes availability is a good idea as the hiring cost is a massive barrier for a family.

Natalie Cooper - Customer Review - April 2015

Portway Lifestyle Centre
Would like to say a massive thank you to the Portway team! After being bullied at school for being skinny, my son joined up for ONE card membership. He was of course quite nervous at his first visit but Dave at reception was fantastic with him and made him feel at ease. He’s been going a week now and all the staff have been great with him, his...

Kerrie Bodley – Customer Review – April 2015

Smethwick Swimming Centre
Would like to say how much of a great instructor Emma is at Portway and Smethwick! She always takes the time out to talk to new members of the classes and always offers an alternate option that isn't as intense. Without her I wouldn't have lost all the weight I have done and probably wouldn't be going to the gym if it wasn't for the...

Lizzie Griffiths – Customer Review – April 2015

Smethwick Swimming Centre
Just wanted to say a big thank you to all the lovely instructors at Smethwick Swimming Centre. Over the past two years I have lost 5 stone through healthy eating and exercise. I didn't join the gym until December 2014 as, like many, I felt too self-conscious to do so. However, within a week I had forgotten about my insecurities and...

Tracy - Customer Review - March 2015

Tipton Leisure Centre
Just wanted to say how fab the cover swim teacher is who has taught my son for the last 2 weeks at Tipton (Stage 2, 10am). She has taken his arms bands off and pushed him and now he is as proud of himself as I am. She also calls the children by name which she picked up on the first lesson and not just a number, which is nice.

Justine - Customer Review - March 2015

Smethwick Swimming Centre
I have always struggled with my weight and would definitely call myself a serial dieter. I joined a slimming club five months ago and I have lost over three stone already. Although this is wonderful I still found I was not happy with my body shape so in December 2014 I set myself a goal. I made myself join the gym but knew I would not attend...

Janna Briggs - Christchurch School Sports Day - January 2015

Sports Development
All of the children had a great time, and all of the staff that came with us have said what good value for money the day was, how well organised it was and how the children clearly had a fab time too. Some of the parents have said that their children enjoyed it and have either been to your swimming pool before but would be more interested in...
