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 your leisure centres and some facilities at Charlton Lakeside re-opened 12th August. Swimming pools re-opened on the 19th August.

Please find more information on open facilities below. To begin with, our focus will be on the gym, classes and swimming pool (where applicable) 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.

Booking and concessionary rates

Members are able to book via the member area on the website or the Places Locker app. If you wish to Pay as You Move and pay for one-off visits, you now need to be a Places member - simply sign up for free. Once you’ve done that, all of the above booking options are open to you and you will have 7 days' advance rights.

If you were using Pay as You Move without a membership prior to lockdown, you will need to visit your centre if you paid a discounted price and wish to still use this moving forward, as you will need to provide proof of eligibility. Until you have visited the centre, you will see the standard price when you go to book a session online. Once you have visited the centre and the team there have set up your discount, you will be able to book at the discounted rate online. All customers aged 0 - 17, 65+ or those with a disability will be eligible for discounted prices on Pay as You Move sessions. 

When will activities start?
