Swimming

WHAT SAFETY MEASURES WILL THERE BE AT THE SWIMMING POOL?

As changing rooms and showers will be limited, we’re asking everyone who attends a swim session to come ‘pool ready’ with their swimming gear on under their clothes and having showered at home.

Due to coronavirus, swimming pools will have:

  • No more than 10 swimmers in each lane of a 25-metre pool.
  • Double-width lanes so you can keep to a safe distance.
  • Chlorine disinfectant in the water management systems, which complies with the government’s regulations and is proven to disinfect pathogens, including viruses such as COVID-19.

When using the pool, please don’t overtake other swimmers to allow for a safe distance at all times.

You can view and book swimming slots by downloading the Better UK app using the link below. Alternatively, you can do this directly from the website

Gym

WHAT SAFETY MEASURES AGAINST CORONAVIRUS WILL THERE BE AT THE GYM?

Because of COVID-19, our gym cleaning standards across our leisure centres have increased.

Staff will be cleaning the gym, equipment and spaces with disinfectant regularly throughout the day and giving the gym a deep clean every night.

When you attend the gym, we ask that you:

  • Use the gym cleaning stations that have hand sanitiser and medical-grade disinfectant regularly.
  • Wipe down machines, weights or mats before and after use with the cleaning materials provided.
  • Attend your session alone to conduct solo gym workouts. This means you won’t be able to use any equipment that requires a spotter.

Swimming Lessons

How have we made lessons COVID-19 Safe?

Whilst we are comfortable that Chlorine treated water is one of the safest environments for our pupils, we have also ensured that our lessons follow Government and industry guidance  and that the whole customer journey and environment is safe for our pupils, parents and teachers. The key changes we have made are:

  • All lessons have staggered start times to reduce the number of people in areas of the centre.
  • Introduction of Lead Swimming Teachers responsible for making all lessons COVID-19 Secure.
  • All Swimming Teachers will deliver from poolside for all swimming lessons.
  • All swimming lesson equipment is disinfected before, during and after all lessons.
  • All swimming lesson capacities have been designed to ensure that all pupils can take part in lessons safely
  • Swimming lesson activities have been reviewed to ensure we can teach a broad range of skills while ensuring COVID-19 Secure measures are maintained

Health Suite

The health suite consists of a sauna and steam room, and is located just off poolside with a small relaxation space.

The steam room will help to relax, alter moods, ease muscle tension, cure and prevent cold and flu symptoms, combat stress. While the sauna not only feels good, it’s good for your body. Whether it’s the physiological changes that occur during the warmth of a sauna, or if it’s simply the time spent in the calming and still retreat of the sauna, every seasoned sauna bather agrees - it feels wonderful!
