A leisure centre has won a monthly award voted for by users.

Walthastow Leisure Centre has won Playfinder’s September Outstanding Facility Award.

The multi-sport recreational venue, based off Markhouse Rd, was voted for by Playfinder users.

Playfinder, which this summer rebranded from MyLocalPitch, is a platform for sports players who want to find and book sports venues.

Jamie Foale, co-Founder of Playfinder, said: “Walthamstow Leisure Centre is a wonderful sports facility and forms an integral part of the local community. There is so much choice here that there’s no excuse for anyone not to come along and get active.”

Angela Riley, Walthamstow Leisure Centre general manager, added: “The award is judged on pitch quality, amenities and customer service – so it’s great to see the hard work of our brilliant staff rewarded. We know we have an important place in the heart of the community in Walthamstow and one that is better served by our not-for-profit social enterprise.
