The Flame Awards Criteria has received a shake up in a bid to better reflect how the leisure sector has evolved and to create opportunities for clubs, industry suppliers and stakeholders to celebrate how their work impacts health.

The Flame Awards 2014 will also see the introduction of new awards and for the first time operators and suppliers will be up against each other in a number of new categories.

These new categories include ‘Workplace Wellbeing’, ‘Shaping the Future Generation’, ‘Go Green’ and ‘Go Outdoors’.

Another addition is the ‘Supplier of the Year’ Award. This category will give suppliers the opportunity to put themselves forward against the best in the sector.

Unveiled at LIW, David Stalker, CEO of ukactive, said: “The changes reflect a desire from ukactive to continually adapt in line with the sector we represent, ensuring all stakeholders have an equal opportunity to gain the recognition they deserve for their dedication to the highest quality of provision of active leisure.”

Key updates to existing awards mean they are now based on what each club offers rather than the size of their membership. This update has led to the separation of ‘Streamline Operation’ and ‘Multi-use Operation’ for both Centre of the Year, and Club of the Year.

The ‘Sprit of Flame’ Award, will have a new focus on entrants up to middle management only.

The first round is an online self-assessment, downloadable from the ukactive website. Entries for ‘Facility Awards’ (all health club/leisure centre awards) will open on the 29 October and close on 20 December, and ‘Category Awards’ (all other awards) open on 7 November and close on 31 January.
