- More info »

Last updated 15th October 2020

Service update

Following the announcement from the local executive on the reintroduction of Covid 19 restrictions in Northern Ireland from Friday 16th October at 6pm, Better leisure centres and gyms will remain open to the public with the following activities until further notice:

Suspended Services

Initially, the suspended activities and services include:

  • Fitness Classes 
  • Swimming lessons
  • Tennis lessons
  • Pitches
  • Sports Halls
  • Racquet Sports
  • Spa Experience and spa treatments
  • Team sports and training 
  • Water Slides 
  • Surf Simulator

Once restrictions are further eased and we can resume these activities and services, we will provide further information on how and when they will return.

If you are a member, you will continue to be given Belfast-wide access to all our locations, so you can use alternative facilities.

Keeping you safe with plenty of space

Your experience may look and feel a little different than usual, but as always, our team will be there to guide you through. To ensure your visit is as safe and comfortable as possible, we have:

  • Reduced equipment within gym areas to allow for social distancing
  • Limited the number of customers allowed within the facility at any one time
  • Introduced pre-booked gym and swim sessions for all customers
  • Enhanced our cleaning regime and provided sanitising materials for members to use on equipment
  • Limited changing room access so members are asked to arrive gym and swim ready
