New Parks Leisure Centre

New Parks Leisure Centre offers activities in our swimming pools and squash courts. Find us on St Oswalds Road, Leicester, LE3 6RJ.

We have made a number of changes in line with England Squash Return to Play guidance and details of these can be found under ‘What are the rules for racquet sports?’ on our FAQs page.

For other activities such as the gym, classes or public swimming, customers can access any Active Leicester leisure centre during this period of reduced operation. Any future changes will be updated on our website and communication provided to our members through our customer newsletter – sign up online.

COVID-19 information

To ensure the centre remains safe and enjoyable for everyone we have put in place safety measures.

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
  • Changes in how we deliver activities to provide additional space for social distancing
  • Increased cleaning and hygiene measures across leisure centres

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 (‘beach-ready’ if you are coming to swim) as our changing rooms may be unavailable.
