Welcome back to leisure!

We would like to start by saying we hope you are all staying safe and in the very best of health.

As our leisure facilities await government approval to re-open our gyms and leisure services, we have been working hard behind the scenes to implement a number of safety, distancing and hygiene measures to allow you to safely return with confidence to our venues. 

As part of this process we have signed up to the sectors governing association ‘UK active’ to be part of the ‘Fit Together’ campaign. When you see these logos displayed in our venues, please feel assured we have updated processes in place to ensure everyone’s safety.

To make sure you feel assured of the safety of our facilities and know what to expect on your return, this web page has been set up specifically to give you more information and updates on the following:
