Gurnell Leisure Centre Temporary Closure: Important Information for Members
- More info »

Thanks for your continued support

First of all we would like to thank all of our members for their support during this challenging time. We have greatly appreciated their patience and understanding while we remained closed - so that we, like many others, could support the national effort to stay home, support the NHS and save lives. 

Gurnell Leisure Centre Remains Closed

The economic impact of COVID-19 has been felt by many across the UK, and unfortunately here at Better we have also been affected. As such, we regret to inform customers that Gurnell Leisure Centre will not be re-opening. Our partners at Ealing Council wished to share this statement with our members:

"Ealing Council’s Cabinet regretfully resolved that Gurnell Leisure Centre will remain closed after the Government restrictions on leisure centre operations are lifted due to the estimated financial implications of re-opening ahead of the redevelopment of Gurnell Leisure Centre arising from the temporary closure due to COVID-19...

...The Council are very sorry that we have had to make the decision to bring the closure forward, but the exceptional circumstances that we face in the wake of COVID-19 has sadly not left us with any realistic alternative option."

We have worked closely with our Council Partners at Ealing Council so that we can ensure a positive outcome for all of our members affected by this closure - and look to offer members suitable alternative locations to support them during this transition period.

Members don't have to do a thing... 

As Gurnell Leisure Centre will not be re-opening, we will be transferring memberships to Wembley Leisure Centre so members can continue to enjoy activities and services nearby.

As there are many Better centres locally, we will be re-instating all memberships with UK wide access so members can get back to the activities they enjoy.

We would like to thank our members again for their support of Gurnell Leisure Centre.
