The Manchester Aquatics Centre has now reopened for swimming, fitness class and gym sessions. 

The centre has undergone a full deep clean and a clear new Covid Secure procedure has been implemented throughout to ensure you can get back to your fitness routine in a safe manner .

So what’s new?

Firstly, all lessions whether than be a swim, a group cycle class or a session in the gym must be booked by the Better UK app.  You can download this from the google play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.innovatise.bettergll&hl=en_GB or the apple store https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/better-uk/id1488614267 .

The centre now has a one way system throughout, please familiarise yourself with this on your visit – we have made changes to ensure that social distance can be maintained right throughout your visit.


Cleaning and sanitiser stations are in place throughout the centre and we are asking all customers to help keep the centre safe by wiping down all equipment used before and after use.


There are now changing areas in the gym and limited amount in the swim changing rooms, we are asking are customers to come ready to use the pool or gym.  Showers are available post swimmer and lockers are available on poolside only for swim customers. 

Each work out station has been placed at least 2 meters apart and we ask that you are mindful of this as you complete your workout – using the yellow and black hazard tape as a guide for keeping 2m apart.

We are really excited to be welcoming you back to the Manchester Aquatics Centre and we hope to see you soon.
