Total number of visitors to Shropshire Council and commissioned leisure facilities. Reported as a rolling 12 month annual figure.
The number of visitors to leisure centres has increased compared to this time last year, the Q1 17/18 figure of 1,979,214 is a 4.6% increase compared to the Q1 16/17 figure of 1,892,058
These increases are despite Shifnal's Idsall Sports Centre closing for repairs during summer 2016 , Bridgnorth Endowed Leisure Centre swimming pool was closed in September 2016 due to structural issues and reopened in July 2017. Changes to service provision mean that figures for Craven Arms Community Centre and St Martin’s Sports Centre (formerly Rhyn Park Sports Hall) usage figures are no longer included in the visitor count.
