Planning your visit

Keeping our staff and members safe is our number one priority. While your visits may feel a little different, our centres will continue to provide you with an excellent experience each visit. We’re striving to offer the best centre experience possible, so head down to your local centre and enjoy one of the great activities available for yourself and/ or the family; you can do so knowing we have extensive cleaning protocols and social distancing practices throughout our centres to ensure you remain safe whilst keeping active.

Key rules in keeping you and our staff safe on your visits

All visitors must wear a mask throughout the centres unless medically exempt as per government rules.

Please follow all social distancing and one way markers throughout our centres, staff will be on hand to help guide you through, if you’re unsure.

Our showers are only to be used for a brief rinse down after a swim and no products are to be used. This is to allow time for sufficient cleaning which has been scheduled in-between sessions.

Hand sanitising stations and wash basins are provided throughout our centres. All visitors must sanitise on entering the centre and are encouraged to use them along with the provided sanitation spray bottles for equipment throughout our facilities.

All centres have a QR code on display and require members to scan this upon entry using a smartphone or the NHS COVID-19 Test and Trace app, as per Government guidelines. The NHS COVID-19 app support website – NHS.UK.

If you or anyone you have been contact with have signs or symptoms of Covid-19 please do not enter our facilities, for the safety of our staff and members.

Hygiene and Cleanliness

Following Government guidance we have reduced the amount of customers on site in line with social distancing measures. Regular deep cleans are scheduled throughout each day using approved COVID products. We have added additional cleaning of all hard surface touch points throughout our sites. We have also changed our closing hours to allow for a full end of night deep clean before welcoming our customers the following day. Members are provided with ample disinfectant stations to clean the equipment being used before and after their use.
