Anderson Keys of Waterworld with the Gold Certificate 
Waterworld Bundoran, Ireland’s Premier Indoor Aqua Adventure Playground, has once again been awarded the only White Flag for County Donegal. The Ireland Active ‘Gold Award’ was presented to Waterworld General Manager Anderson Keys at a ceremony recently in Salthill, County Galway.

The White Flag National Quality Standard, grades facilities’ operational standards, similar to the Blue Flag award which classifies Ireland’s beaches, and it is fast becoming the most sought after accolade in the leisure industry. It is the only industry specific award for the Irish Leisure and Spa Industry.
Speaking following the award, Anderson Keys of Waterworld Bundoran said “as we head into year 24 of operations we are delighted once again to be awarded the only White Flag in County Donegal. We pride ourselves on this achievement and work hard each year to ensure that our facility maintains its high standards so that all of our visitors can have an enjoyable, and importantly, safe visit to Waterworld and Seaweed Baths facility. Thanks to the staff here at Waterworld who have once again made this possible and to the Waterworld Directors who endorse and recognize the value of this award to the company’s operation, profile and development.”

The White Flag National quality standard is based on the 3 essential areas when operating any leisure centre or spa: Safety, Hygiene & Maintenance and Customer Care. The standard is designed to encourage continuous improvement and it is categorised into three levels for the leisure centre sector: Gold, Silver and Bronze.
Chief Executive of Donegal County Council Seamus Neely commented: ‘we are delighted that Waterworld has once again attained the White Flag National Quality Standard.  Achieving this best practice standard is a great reflection on the hard working team at Waterworld Bundoran’.
