Plus we've added a extra month as a thank you for your patience and loyalty.
For pay monthly fixed term 12 month memberships for health and fitness and swimming, contracts will not be extended, meaning that your contact will still have the same end date regardless of the closure period.
Please discuss with your employer but we will extend your membership end date ensuring you receive your full membership term when the centre re-opens.

Please arrive to your swimming lesson five minutes before the session starts.

If you’re coming for a swim we ask that you arrive for your swim changed and ready to go, and just use the shower before you enter the pool.

Any pre-paid bookings such as children’s birthday parties, sports courts, 3G, 4G, or 5G rentals will be credited to allow you to re-book for a future date. We will be in contact in due course to keep you informed of the centre’s reopening and therefore the continuation of any activity bookings.
In order to monitor and limit the number of people using the gym and spread the usage through the day to support social distancing, all gym, class, and swim sessions need to be booked in advance either via the Leisure Centre app or website. Members are able to make their advanced bookings through our App, or on your centres dedicated page through book an activity.

We are introducing a new booking cancellation policy upon re-opening. This policy will work to ensure that all members are given fair access to gym and group exercise classes, and hopefully aim to reduce the amount of unattended sessions.
If you are unable to attend a gym or group exercise class booking you have made, you must cancel this at least two hours prior to the start of the session - you can do this via the app (under ‘My Account’) or website. If you fail to do so and your booking is unattended, you receive one 'strike'. Should you fail to cancel a booking three times in any 30 day rolling period your online booking rights will be removed for seven days. After this period the three 'strikes' are removed and your account set back to zero.
We now ask that all visitors wear face coverings whilst in a non-exercise area as an extra precaution to protect both you and our staff. In line with W.H.O. guidelines, we do not recommend the use of face coverings during physical activity. All of our staff will be wearing face coverings in all public areas unless participating in coaching or fitness sessions. Please note, masks are not required from those who are exempt and children under 11 years of age.
For the time being some of our facilities will remain closed, this includes the dry changing rooms. If you’re coming for a swim we ask that you arrive for your swim changed and ready to go, and just use the shower before you enter the pool. After your swim you will have access to a changing room for a monitored time, please make sure you’re courteous to other swimmers by socially distancing in these areas.

We are committed to providing a service to all our customers which is COVID-19 secure from infection. Since the beginning of lockdown in March, we have been planning how to reopen safely.
Members of our senior management team have actively contributed to the production of industry safety guidance through ukactive, the Royal Life Saving Society and Swim England.
The company health and safety team have produced COVID-19 specific risk assessments, documented safety procedures and a training module for all staff. From this, each centre has developed specific safety arrangements to ensure social distancing, hygiene procedures and customer information is in place.
In addition to our increased cleaning and sanitisation programme, and in order to provide additional protection to our customers and staff, all our high contact point surfaces have been treated with an antiviral shield. This shield will kill bacteria and viruses that land on it on an ongoing basis.How will it help to keep me safe?
We will be reapplying the shield regularly to provide the highest standards of protection.

All sites have conducted a detailed risk assessment following a bespoke template created by our Health, Safety and Compliance Manager. As a result of the risk assessment, each site has put in place arrangements to protect everyone when on our premises.
