Ribby Hall pool shortlisted for four national awards

The new swimming pool and spa provided by Leyland-based World Leisure (UK) Ltd for Ribby Hall Village holiday park, Wrea Green,has been shortlisted in FOUR categories at the UK Pool & Spa Awards 2017.

Founded in 2010, the UK Pool & Spa Awards are organised by Waterland Media, the publishers of Swimming Pool Scene and Hot Tub & Swim Spa Scene, the market-leading magazines for the combined water leisure sectors.

The awards are open to the entire water leisure industry and aim to celebrate outstanding swimming pools, swim spas, hot tubs design, management and refurbishment, and the outstanding people in the industry.

Opened in April this year, the new pool at Ribby Hall features new slides including a 48m interactive play slide. Members and guestscan climb a tower to the top of the slide, which then takes them out of the building and back inside again. As they come down the slide, they can play an interactive touchpad game on the inside of the slide, with scores recorded once the ride is complete. Scores can be uploaded to social media platforms, with the top three scores displayed in the pool area.

World Leisure also refurbished the splash pool and added an interactive aqua deck play structure, with tipping buckets and integral slides. A themed GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) toddlers’ pool links into the splash pool by both slide and steps and World Leisure also installed a new sauna, steam room and feature showers, with all new filtration and controls.

Mark Leech, senior manager of Ribby Hall Village, said: “It’s fantastic news to see our pool nominated for a total of four awards. Two of the awards are in the Public Pool category, which celebrates innovative design and great management, while the other two are in the Project category, recognising the great job World Leisure did in delivering the project to such a high standard, with work that would normally take between 6 and 12 months completed within 12 weeks.

“On-line voting accounts for 40% of the overall vote with the remainder being down to a judging panel made up of industry representatives and professionals from all over the world.”

The categories the pool is shortlisted in are: Water Leisure venue of the year, Holiday Park pool of the year, Commercial Project and Commercial Refurbishment.

Online voting closes on 30th October and the winners will be announced at an industry ceremony at The Vox, Resorts World, Birmingham, on 4th December 2017.
