New operator announced for Camden aquatic centres

Camden Council has announced a new operator for its Mount Annan Leisure Centre, Camden War Memorial Pool and the soon to open, $63 million Oran Park Leisure Centre.

BlueFit, a family-owned company, has 17 years’ experience in the management and operation of aquatic and leisure centres and will take over operation of the facilities from 1 July. The company currently operates 62 facilities across the country.

Mayor of Camden, Ashleigh Cagney said she welcomed BlueFit.

“The tender process involved more than just price, we wanted to make sure the community was getting the best value in terms of service, programs and facilities,” she said.

“A partnership approach with the new operator is really important to Council and I’m looking forward to working with BlueFit to see the programs and initiatives they deliver for the community.

“I would like to thank The Y NSW for their support and commitment to the community during their management of Mount Annan Leisure Centre and Camden War Memorial Pool.”

BlueFit CEO, Todd McHardy said he felt “privileged to be selected by Camden Council for the operation of the two existing leisure facilities in Mount Annan and Camden and to launch the new Oran Park Leisure Centre.

“Our goal is to Inspire Community Activity, which starts with a smooth management transition for the benefit of existing staff, user-groups, stakeholders and patrons.

“Our experience managing multiple facilities for various NSW communities is advantageous in ensuring this transparent partnership with the council, asset management and delivery of quality local services are all a success,” he said.
