Coral Leisure announce Darragh Greene as their new Brand Ambassador
June 2nd, 2020
Irish international swimmer Darragh Greene is today announced as Brand Ambassador for Coral Leisure Ireland. Having started his swimming career in his local Coral Leisure swimming pool in Longford, Darragh continues to use his local centre as he prepares to compete at Tokyo. Coral Leisure are extremely proud to be supporting Darragh on his journey to the Olympics in 2021 as part of Team Ireland, even recently supplying Darragh with necessary gym equipment to keep his training on track during the Covid 19 restrictions.
Irish family owned Coral Leisure are Ireland’s leading Leisure & Energy Management company managing nine pool & leisure facilities nationwide. In addition to Longford they include facilities in Arklow, Askeaton, Ballinasloe, Cobh, Killarney, Monaghan, Tuam, and Wicklow. Coral Leisure are known for a personable and transparent approach and put great emphasis on building relationships with customers and local community groups.
Nationwide, their enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff pride themselves on delivering real value by providing high quality standards of customer care in a friendly and professional atmosphere. It’s these brand values that Darragh believes in, telling us “I am very much looking forward to being part of the Coral team. They have been such a big part of my junior swimming life as that’s where my training began. They have also been hugely supportive of me as my career has progressed and most recently during the current crisis, providing me with the necessary gym equipment to allow me to continue my training. I am extremely grateful to them and am excited about being able to help the Coral team and their members however I can.”
Also speaking on the announcement, Managing Director Siobhán Tighe commented “We are delighted to have Darragh as our Brand Ambassador and are very proud of all his achievements to date. We are looking forward to supporting Darragh on his journey to Tokyo in 2021.”
Following the publication of the Governments roadmap for reopening society and business, we at Coral Leisure are currently working to develop a strategy to re-open our facilities. In conjunction with our Local Authorities we are in the process of finalising the re-opening plans for each of our 9 centres.
The safety of our staff and customers has always been our number one priority. We have been in contact with industry leading experts from across the globe and are ensuring evidence-based procedures will be in place once our pools, gyms and fitness facilities re-open.
Due to the variety and diversity of Coral Leisure facilities across the country, each centre shall have a bespoke programme for re-opening. The site-specific details of these plans shall be communicated to you from your local Coral Leisure centre closer to the date of each phase in the government roadmap.
Across all Coral centres however there will be social distancing measures, hand sanitising stations, rigorous cleaning regimes and comprehensive training for all staff in place when we begin operations again.
In line with the government’s phased roadmap, Coral Leisure hopes to implement a phased reopening of it centres and a phased re-introduction of services.
Phase 2 -June 8th – Small outdoor fitness classes will resume, in some centres with appropriate facilities, with social distancing measure in place. Some centres will also be offering online classes, possibly even before this date.
Phase 4 – July 20th – Swimming Pools will reopen with social distancing measures in place and extensive effective cleaning procedures in place. Limits on numbers will apply.
Phase 5 – August 10th – Gyms, Exercise Studios and sports halls will reopen. Again, limits on numbers will apply, social distancing measure will be in place and extra cleaning procedures will be in place,
Please follow our social media channels to be kept informed of the specific plans for your local Coral Leisure centre.
We are looking forward to seeing all of our members and customers in the coming months, as always Coral Leisure is at the heart of your community and we will continue to ensure the highest possible standards as we face into the new world post Coronavirus, together.
We hope you are keeping safe and well. It has now been 7 weeks since we had to close our doors! Unbelievable how fast time is going! We genuinely miss chatting with you all and catching up with you on your visits to the gym and pool. We have always appreciated the kindness and generosity shown to us from our customers. This makes our working day so much more enjoyable and this has continued through all the changes we have experienced during these strange times.
We have been trying our best to keep everyone active and healthy and hoping that we can help you to remain positive. We created a home work out challenge which turned out to be a great success. We crowned Mr. Tony Mulraine the winner of a 3 month Pool & Gym membership for his amazing dedication to the challenge and for keeping us posted with videos of his daily workouts. Thank you to everyone who signed up to our challenge. If you would like to continue the home workout program you can find the instructional videos on our YouTube page by pressing on link below -
We would like to reassure our members that their membership was placed on hold from Friday 13th March 2020 and we will be in touch with you all when the time comes to reinstate memberships. In the meantime, if there is anything we can do for you or if you have any questions or concerns please send an email through to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you have any feedback or ideas to help us for when the time comes to reopen please send them to us, these are new times that we will all be facing which can be made easier by working together.
