One Leisure is managed by Huntingdonshire District Council and is the in-house leisure provider for the council.
In January 2010, five individual leisure centres in Huntingdon, Ramsey, Sawtry, St Ives and St Neots were rebranded as One Leisure. The principal objective of this was to reinforce the use of all One Leisure sites with a single membership.
The rebranding coincided with the centres undertaking significant redevelopment to provide modern leisure facilities to meet the Council's priorities of providing a healthy, active population. Over £10 million has been invested at the St Ives, St Neots and Huntingdon sites in the past five years transforming the facilities into high quality leisure centres which cater for public demand to the highest levels.
One Leisure has been recognised nationally at the Health Club Awards in 2012 by winning bronze for best small chain in the UK – a direct result of votes and support from its growing customer base. In 2013, One Leisure was once again nominated in the final five.
"We aim to provide a progressive, quality and value for money service encouraging continued and frequent use by the community."
