As the General Manager of Talacre, I wanted to personally welcome all of our customers back following the most recent restart of activity at the centre.

This year has been tremendously difficult for so many people and we really value your ongoing support for the centre and for GLL. As a charitable social enterprise, we are dedicated to continuing to offer top class accessible facilities for our communities and seeing the community return to us has been extraordinarily uplifting - we can't wait to continue helping you on your health and wellbeing journey.

We are still operating under Covid-19 secure restrictions, to make sure we can continue keeping you safe and comfortable as you go about your activity.  I just wanted to remind you of a few of the extra measures we have in place at the moment.

  • Activities are pre-bookable only, which you can do on our Better UK mobile app, or go online at You can find out more and see a step-by-step guide to booking at
  • Whilst our changing rooms remain closed for now we ask that customers arrive changed into the appropriate sportswear for the activity.
  • All customers must wear a face covering when entering and leaving the building, and transitioning to and from activities. You are not required to wear a face covering whilst taking part in an activity.
  • Sanitisation stations and coronavirus safety signs and floor stickers are distributed around the building. Please pay attention to these safety signs and follow any entry/exit routes and one-way systems, and use sanitiser between activities when using equipment.

Our staff are working hard to help keep you safe and comfortable during your activity by putting in place an enhanced cleaning regime - but there are some measures that we are asking you to help with too. For more infomation about the safety measures we have in place please visit:

I am looking forward to seeing you around the centre and if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to speak to me or any of my colleagues in centre.

Best Wishes,

Karen Malone

General Manager, Talacre Community Sports Centre
