Returning to our leisure centres

The safety and well-being of our members and teams remains our top priority during this period. We encourage you to stay healthy and active during this time and urge all visitors to observe good hygiene and be socially responsible. This is a collective effort to keep yourself, your loved ones and everyone safe.

This is a difficult time for all of us, our staff are working hard to ensure each session is safe and ask for you to bear with us whilst we provide your chosen activity. All staff members have the right to work without fear or abuse. Any aggression or abuse directed towards our staff will not be tolerated.

We understand that many of you may have questions about returning to leisure centres in the age of COVID-19 (coronavirus). We’ve put together some of the commonly asked questions, based on industry guidance about transmission of COVID-19. We’ve used these to support the changes we’ve made in our centres and will update them if advice changes.

Keeping us all safe

Working out is going to look a bit different for a while and we’ve had to make some changes to your leisure facility. We invite you to read the following centre rules to better understand these changes before you visit us. As government guidance changes, we’ll make sure these are updated to keep you informed.

You may be asked to queue to gain entry to the centre, and should be prepared to do so outside if necessary.

Some of our centres are operating lateral flow testing, so you may see a separate queue for this service.

Reduced timetable

Due to Government guidelines, we’ve had to change how we operate, and we are hoping to increase the amount of activities available over the next few weeks.
