The leading lights of the physical activity sector were honoured last night (28 June) at a glittering awards ceremony in Telford’s International Conference Centre to cap off Flame 2017.

The 15 winners of the most prestigious accolades in the physical activity sector overcame tough competition in each of their categories to go home with their gongs.

The ceremony – in front of an audience of more than 800 sector-leaders – concluded months of rigorous assessment for the hundreds of entrants. Several stages of evaluation took place to finally select winners, including customer insight surveys, mystery calls, visits and on-site customer interviews.

The 15 ukactive & Matrix Fitness Flame Awards categories recognise facilities, suppliers, operators, educational institutes, health practitioners and large corporations that have demonstrated exceptional standards, highlighting the work they do driving forward the physical activity agenda.
