Re-opening information

We're looking forward to welcoming you back!

Thank you for bearing with us while we’ve been closed. We’re delighted to tell you that centres in your area re-opened on 3rd August 2020.

To begin with, our focus will be on the gym, classes and swimming pool (where available) until all our services can re-start safely, in line with Government and industry guidelines. We will update the information below for all other facilities and activities as soon as we know more.

You can view timetables on your centre's homepage and book sessions 14 days in advance of the facilities re-opening. If you are looking to book a swimming session, please note the date that your centre's pool re-opens. Direct Debit and annual members have 14 days' advance booking rights and Places members have 7 days' advance rights. To book, please visit the member area on our website or use the Places Locker app. For more information on booking, visit our FAQs.
