Find out more about our re-opening plans

Please find below information related to our centres' re-opening plans.


We're really excited to welcome you back! Some of our centres already have re-opening dates and some are really close - for those centres, we'll be in touch to let customers know the date very soon.

We know it's disappointing for those centres that do not yet have a re-opening date. Covid-19 has had an enormous impact upon public sector leisure which has placed significant risk to services across the country. We, and all other leisure management organisations, have been working hard with our local authority partners to find a viable way in which services can be delivered. Along with other organisations in the sector, we have been working with Sport England and ukactive, in raising the profile of the value of public leisure services since the beginning of the lockdown. This has culminated in serious lobbying of the government and we understand that ministers are now appreciating the severity of the situation. We sincerely hope that this may lead to the creation of a ring-fenced support scheme in the coming days or weeks, enabling us to open all our centres. 

We will continually update the pages below, which include FAQs for both open and closed centres.

Our website and Facebook will also be regularly updated with the latest information.

Find out how we're planning to keep your visits to our centres safe and enjoyable in the video below.
