Courses & Lessons Safety Measures

Following the Government announcement, we are pleased to share the latest information on the reopening of our centres.

It’s been a challenging start to the year for us all, but this update is very much welcomed by the leisure industry and we look forward to getting the nation back active in 2021. We’re so pleased we’re once again able to support our local communities. Like everyone else, over the coming months, our focus is to safely reopen our centres as soon as we can.

Thank you all for your continued support.

Please be aware, not all of the below facilities may reopen at your local leisure centre in the first instance – this is dependent on the specific plans that have been agreed with your local authority.

Please ensure you read this information thoroughly before visiting the centre. All the measures detailed below are based on government guidance, professional bodies and our own risk assessments.
