Leisure Centre Update - 22nd July 2020

We’re here to serve the communities of Sheffield and safety is our number one priority. Throughout lockdown, we've been working behind the scenes to prepare our venues and ensure that they are 'COVID safe'.

We’re working closely with Sheffield City Council to establish a reopening plan that is safe, affordable and serves all of Sheffield’s communities. While this is finalised we will not be in a position to reopen on 25 July.

We’re really looking forward to welcoming everyone back as soon as it is safe to do so, and once we have a reopening date we’ll be in touch with timetables and information on bookings.

We would like to thank all our customers for their continued support and patience.


We're here to help you stay active at home and #feelgood
