What sports services are reopening and when

Reduced capacity

Each facility area will reopen with a reduced operating capacity to enable us to comply with social distancing and ensure the safety of both customers and staff.

Visiting us 

All attendances must be booked in advance either online, via the App or by phone and may be done so up to 7 days in advance.

Also, ensure you have read our What you need to know before you visit our sports centres guidance.

Following the latest Government guidelines we remain open and our activities continue to run without any change to our Covid-secure measures. 

From Thursday 24 September 2020, all of our Sports and Fitness Centres will be operating NHS Test and Trace, as per Government legislation. When visiting our centres, we encourage you to scan the NHS QR code and you will be asked to provide your name and contact details so you can be notified if you have been exposed to the virus.
