Users of the National Sports Centre have a smart new way to keep track of their loyalty points.
A new Manx Sport and Recreation (MSR) Scorecard will replace the existing NSC resident discount card, with customers scoring loyalty points for participating in wide ranging activities, such as, swimming, a daily fitness pass, or through booking a badminton/squash court.
The MSR Scorecard is available as a credit card-sized card, a key fob or silicone wristband. The cards and fobs are free to any existing or new customers. A wristband is free for those with a swim or gym membership at the NSC, and other customers can purchase a band if they wish for £2.50.
Customers with the old NSC resident discount card can exchange them at their next visit to the NSC at the reception desk.
For the first week (w/c 19th Feb) Manx Sport and Recreation will have extra support at reception from 5-7pm, though customers can exchange their card at whenever convenient to them.
Minister for Education, Sport and Culture Graham Cregeen MHK was among the first to switch to the new MSR scorecard. He said:
"The MSR Scorecard to a vital step which links online booking and National Sports Centre’s digital improvements, including door control and self-access systems. Our strategic aim is to encourage more people to be more active more often, and rewarding individuals who regularly take part in sport and physical activities is key in ensuring we deliver against this outcome in our Strategy for Sport"’
Customers booking online will use their MSR Scorecard number to login and those already registered with the NSC online will be emailed with details of the switch.
Each customer is permitted to have one card, fob or band attached to their account, and a small charge will be made for replacements, should a customer lose it.
