GLL set to run the Aquatics Centre
9th January 2012
Today marks the 200 days to go until the Olympic Games begin in London and it also marks the day that Grennwich Leisure limited (GLL) have been named as the facility operator of the London Aquatics Centre when it moves into its legacy mode.
The Aquatics Centre, which will host the Swimming, Diving and Synchronised Swimming during Games time, will be turned into a major community facility for use by all local people.
London will be the first host city to have long term operators in place for all the permanent venues before the Games have even started.
Regional Director of London Swimming Colin Brown said: “GLL is a key partner for aquatics in London. A company that operates more than 50% of the publically owned leisure stock in London including 50m pools at Crystal Palace, Ealing, Hackney was also going to win my vote for the aquatics centre. This allows us to join up pathways and programmes across the capital to benefit athletes and coaches going forward. Role on 2014.”
