Please remain in your vehicle until 10 minutes before your activity time; all customers must check in via the new queue systems (see below for activity entrance queues as they are different to pre Covid). Do not enter the queue any earlier and be mindful that on busy sessions the queue is likely to be stretching outside so please be prepared for all weather.

You will need to complete your activity in your designated time slot and leave promptly once completed to keep the Leisure Centre safe and allow other customers access to use the facility.

Bring change for your locker – the Centre is now cashless.

Bring your own pre filed drinking bottle and hand sanitiser.

You must not go from the one activity to another. You need separate bookings and you must exit and re-enter using the approved routes (see below).

In line with Government guidelines we will pass on information regarding your visit to the NHS Test and Trace service if requested to do so.
