Who we are

Meet the team


Holywell Leisure Centre is the home for 25 employee’s. The team all have exceptional customer service skills and many years leisure industry experience between them. Here’s a quick introduction to the management:


Chris Travers – Holywell Leisure Centre Manager


Chris is a badminton enthusiast who has worked at the centre for 20 years. Throughout his career he has lived and breathed all aspects of the leisure industry, so if there’s anything Chris doesn’t know, we are all in trouble! Outside of work Chris is a massive Game of Thrones fan.



Ben Welsh – Holywell Leisure Centre Assistant Manager


Like Chris, Ben has been part of the fixtures and fittings at the leisure centre for a long time, 19 years in fact. Family and football are his passions, but his all round sporting knowledge makes him an asset to the team.


James Kerrigan – Holywell Leisure Centre Assistant Manager


Since leaving school James has known nothing but working in the sports and leisure sector, so he is perfectly placed to assist Chris as the centre enters a time of change.  James is a new dad, and enjoys the challenge of leading a team.
