Dartford FC is pleased to announce a new partnership with the newly refurbished Fairfield Leisure Centre, which opens fully to the public on Saturday 13th February.
Dartford FC First Team players and management team will have access to the facilities at Fairfield Leisure Centre for the next 18 months, enabling players to maintain their fitness throughout the season, during close season and importantly in the pre-season months. The new facilities will also help with the rehabilitation of any player injuries.
The centre was first build in 1973 and shut its doors for the final time before the redevelopment on the 31st March 2014.
The new centre includes the addition of a four court sports hall providing opportunities for a range of indoor sports, a 3m diving platform and springboard, a poolside sauna, a 95 station gym including a state of the art spinning studio adjoining the fitness suite and a café area to name a few new developments.
The whole centre has been refurbished including the pool areas, and Places for People Leisure will manage Fairfield for the duration of the ten year tender.
Callum Stirling, Contract Marketing Manager for Fairfield Leisure Centre said of the deal “Having been in contact with Lauren and Dartford Football Club it became apparent that a partnership between Fairfield and Dartford FC would be beneficial for us both. I feel that providing a training and rehabilitation centre for the players is key to their success on and off the field. I was invited to a match and was impressed with the support from the local community and feel that it’s only right we can support our local club in whatever way we can.”
First Team Physiotherapist Anthony Adeyileka added “The facilities will enable us as a club to maintain an active lifestyle as well as providing our players quality rehabilitation following injuries. It’s a great opportunity for the club to strengthen our community links and is a paramount in the development of our First Team Squad.”
Lauren Webster, Commercial Manager said “I am extremely pleased to be working with Fairfield Leisure Centre for the next 18 months and hopefully longer. I had been talking with a number of gyms within the area, and it seemed only right that we worked with a local gym to Dartford FC that could provide the club with the facilities we need for our players. I have been for a tour around the new leisure centre and it is very impressive, and I am very pleased to have a partnership in place that will benefit both companies. I am looking forward to working with Callum and his team over the next few months.’
