Welcome Back

We've missed seeing you in our venues, and we’ve been busy preparing for your return.

Statement from Sheffield City Trust regarding South Yorkshire entering ‘Tier 3’ 

"After the announcement on Wednesday morning (October 21) that Sheffield, along with the rest of South Yorkshire, will enter ‘Tier 3’ Covid restrictions from Saturday morning we can confirm that fitness classes will not continue after Friday.

We have now had confirmation from England Athletics that our athletics sessions will now only be accessible for under 18s or disabled athletes. This change will come into effect from Saturday 24th October. 

Over 18s can continue to train outdoors and Woodbourn Road remains open. We are aware the these restrictions will have an impact on your members, if you would like to freeze your membership please complete our freeze request form here,

“All other services currently been provided at all our venues will continue to be offered, which is in line with the restrictions of being in a ‘Tier 3’ area.

“Our priority is the health and wellbeing of our customers and colleagues and so we are delighted that the local restrictions will allow leisure venues to remain open, including the re-opening of Ponds Forge and Heeley swimming pool from Monday, October 26. 

“The latest information will be available here."

Refunds Of Fitness Classes Booked

Any upcoming fitness class bookings after Friday that have been paid for online or over the phone will automatically be refunded to you. You do not need to contact us about your refund. Due to the volume of refunds being processed please allow 5 working days for this to appear in your bank account. If you have paid for a fitness class booking in venue, one of our team will contact you within 5 working days to arrange your refund.
