Beau Sejour Leisure Centre in Guernsey has been rated as 'excellent' in a national awards scheme.
Quest is a UK sport activities award which looks at how effective leisure facilities are.
Beau Sejour had been banded 'very good' in 2017, but the new rating means it is in the top 13% of accredited leisure centres throughout the British Isles.
The scheme also looks at how well facilities follow health and safety guidelines and how well they are maintained and cleaned.
The assessment for the award took place in February with a mystery visitor going see the centre. That was followed by a two day course in April which was led by assessor David Monkhouse from Leisure Net.
The President of Guernsey's Committee for Education, Sport and Culture has congratulated the sports facility on achieving the recognition.
