Keeping our customers and colleagues safe

As we continue to open our doors it is essential we take all the necessary steps to protect the safety, health and wellbeing of our employees and customers.

We are working hard by implementing the policies, measures and training which are necessary to make our employees and customers feel comfortable and safe.

Help us all stay safe by following the guidance below to combat COVID-19.

When visiting our venues please follow the below guidance to keep customers and colleagues safe:

  • Follow all directional signage, barrier restrictions and one way systems around the building.
  • Face coverings are mandatory in all venues (no requirement for face coverings when exercising).
  • At our Sport & Leisure venues, please book and pay for your sessions and activities in advance online via the app or over the phone.
  • If you are unable to book and pay in advance please pay via a contactless transaction. Cash will be accepted but we would like to keep this to a minimum.
  • Where hygiene stations are provided please use sanitiser upon entry and exit.
  • Please report immediately to a member of staff if you observe anyone not adhering to rules and guidelines and potentially putting others at risk.
  • We ask that if you have been displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or living with someone who has been displaying symptoms of COVID-19 that you do not use our venues and follow government guidance.
  • There are Test and Protect measures in place where details will be taken. 

To ensure the safety and wellbeing of our customers and employees we will:

  • Clean equipment regularly.
  • Address the ventilation requirements in accordance with the current guidance.

  • There are Test and Protect measures in place where details will be taken. 

In addition, detailed risk assessments are carried out in advance of occupying any of our buildings and part of the planning of service delivery.

Risk assessments will be reviewed and updated on a regular basis as guidance and restrictions change. These may ease, or other restrictions may be reintroduced, depending on the level of virus within our community.

Everyone attending our fitness suites should read and follow the below guidance:

  • Please do not leave the class early or put away equipment until asked to do so by the coach.
  • Please contact your sports centre for information on changing rooms.

Please be aware of the new Covid-secure process for arriving and exiting our pools.

  • Customers must book and pay for sessions either online, via the app or over the phone prior to visiting the pool.
  • Where use of changing rooms and changing villages are permitted, please limit your time to help us maintain hygiene standards.
  • Customers will be asked to remove outdoor shoes when on poolside but are welcome to change into clean indoor shoes such as flip flops.
