Wandsworth

Re-opening information

Current information on leisure centres in Wandsworth

In partnership with Wandsworth Borough Council please find below details of our plans to re-open the sports and fitness facilities.

We will re-open the facilities in phases. Tooting Bec Lido will re-open on 12th August followed by the leisure centres on 19th August. This will give us additional time to properly implement new measures – things like signage to ensure we all respect social distancing, reduced activity capacities, enhanced cleaning regimes, and hand sanitising and cleaning stations in the slightly more complex indoor environments.

Admissions will be by online pre-booked appointments from 10th August, with swimmers given specific time slots for lane swimming only. Unfortunately, and due to coronavirus restrictions, people will not be able to sunbathe in the lido’s grassy surrounds.

People will also need to pre-book gym, classes and swim visits to the leisure centres.  Due to the nature of sport and fitness facilities, activities will also be subject to enhanced safety measures.

Dave Joliffe, Area Manager at Places Leisure said: 'We are delighted that we will soon be able to welcome customers back to our gyms, leisure centres and swimming pools. We have been working hard to make sure that we can reopen as safely and as quickly as possible. The Places Leisure team will have a busy couple of weeks ahead getting the facilities ready for everyone to return, including putting in place enhanced cleaning regimes and social distancing measures.'

To say a big thank you for staying with Places Leisure while we’ve been closed, we are automatically upgrading site only Premium members at our leisure centres to an All Places membership, so that you can enjoy our other local centres for 3 months. This upgrade also applies to swim only members at Tooting Leisure Centre as their swimming pool is currently closed for scheduled works.*
