Courses & Lessons Reopening Measures

We understand the most recent Government announcement may have caused some confusion over whether leisure centres are affected by the new guidance. We’re pleased to say they are exempt, and we are continuing to impose strict measures for the safety of our customers and colleagues.

Rest assured, the latest guidance applies only to social gatherings and requires you to not meet with people from other households in groups of more than six. Full details can be on the Government Social Distancing Guidelines. If there are any changes to guidance that affects the opening or operation of our centres, we will of course let you know immediately. Full details on our reopening measures can be found on this page.

We will be continually updating the list of sites that are opening. To see the list click, sites open near me.

We’ve been working hard to ensure our centres remain a safe environment for all when they reopen.  Below are details for the measures we are taking specifically to certain facilities/activities within them.

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.
