COVID-19 information

In line with current government guidance, Braunstone Leisure Centre, Evington Leisure Centre, Leicester Leys Leisure Centre and Spence Street Sports Centre will reopen on Monday 14 September. Group exercise classes will become available at these facilities on Wednesday 16 September.

Cossington Street Sports Centre will open with the brand new gym and group exercise studio available on Saturday 19 September. Our other centres will open in October.

Of course, in order to maintain the safety of our customers and staff, we need to undertake certain measures, meaning that your experience at our centres might be a little bit different. Here are some of the things we are introducing to keep you safe:

  • Booking and payment in advance are essential
  • Screens at reception desks and helpful information signage throughout our centres
  • Relocation of activities to provide additional space for social distancing
  • Gym equipment spaced out for social distancing
  • Increased cleaning and hygiene measures across leisure centres

Gym

The changes we are making to our gym are:

  • Sessions must be booked and paid for in advance
  • Each session will be a maximum of 50 minutes long, with 10 minutes at the end for cleaning and to allow customers to leave safely
  • Only one gym session per day is permitted, so everyone can utilise the facilities
  • We will limit the number of people in the gym at any one time to allow for social distancing (the maximum number will be subject to the size of the gym in each centre)
  • Where possible, we have utilised other areas of our centres to space out gym equipment
  • Customers must arrive dressed to exercise, as changing and showering facilities may not be available
  • Water fountains not in use – please bring your own water bottle
  • Cleaning stations will be located around the gym for customers and staff to clean equipment before and after use

Group exercise classes

Changes we are making to group exercise classes include:

  • Sessions must be booked and paid for in advance
  • 30-minute gaps between classes to allow for cleaning and changeover
  • Only one class per day is permitted, so everyone can utilise the facilities
  • Class capacity reduced to ensure social distancing, with floor markers to outline starting points for participants
  • Customers must arrive dressed to exercise, as changing and showering facilities may not be available
  • Water fountains not in use – please bring your own water bottle

Please book any sessions or classes in advance, to avoid disappointment. In order to book, you will need to be an Active Leicester member. We also advise that members pay in advance to save any unnecessary contact on arrival. When you come to our centres, please arrive in appropriate clothing as our changing rooms may be unavailable
