Kingston

Re-opening information

We're looking forward to welcoming you back!

Thank you for bearing with us over the last few months. It’s been a tricky time, but we’re pleased to say that leisure centres in your area re-opened on 24th August!

Unfortunately, Kingfisher Leisure Centre isn’t able to re-open just yet. As you will be aware, Kingston Council closed the centre in December 2019 due to urgent repair works. The council is carefully reviewing the full structural survey of the leisure centre roof in the context of their financial position and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, so, unfortunately, the centre will remain closed until further notice. At this stage we anticipate that it will be for at least 12 months. You can find out more on Kingston Council's website here.

You can view timetables on your centre's homepage and book sessions 14 days in advance of the facilities re-opening. If you are looking to book a swimming session, please note the date that your centre's pool re-opens. Direct Debit and annual members have 14 days' advance booking rights and Places members have 7 days' advance rights. To book, please visit the member area on our website or use the Places Locker app. Please note that all our leisure centres in Kingston are cashless at this time. For more information on booking, visit our FAQs.
