Leisure centres to reopen in Charnwood

Residents in Charnwood will be able to get back to the gym and take a swim from next week as all three leisure centres will reopen from April 12.

Charnwood Borough Council and its leisure partner Fusion Lifestyle has confirmed that in line with the Government roadmap, indoor leisure facilities will reopen from April 12 at Soar Valley Leisure Centre, Loughborough Leisure Centre and South Charnwood Leisure Centre.

The reopening of leisure centres means that residents in Charnwood can once again enjoy their favourite fitness fix, including indoor swimming and going back to the gym.

Outdoor group exercise classes at Soar Valley Leisure Centre will continue until indoor classes are permitted from May 17 at the earliest.

Swim school for children will also restart on April 12 at all three leisure centres.

The centres will continue to operate in line with government safety guidelines and those planning to visit will still be required to book and pay online, to ensure contact is minimised at each centre and allowing for the track and trace process to be implemented.

Gym users will be asked to arrive ready to work out, and swimmers will be required to arrive with their costumes under their clothes, ready to go.  These measures, combined with meticulous cleaning routines, are designed to keep customers safe and offer complete confidence to use the facilities and classes when they return to the centres.
