Council leisure centres re-open

All seven council Leisure Centres in Brighton & Hove will re-open on Wednesday 2 December.

The centres, which include the King Alfred and Prince Regent, will welcome back visitors for a range of activities including gym sessions, swimming, racket sports and group exercises. Swimming lessons will also resume.

Covid safe

Matt Hunt, Operations Director for Freedom Leisure, which operates the centres in partnership with Brighton & Hove City Council, said: “Our centres will continue to provide a covid safe place to give customers the reassurance we know they need.

"The teams can’t wait to get back to the business of providing our local communities with opportunities for exercise, activity and the chance to socialise safely with others.”

The centres have been closed for four weeks during lockdown.

Health benefits

Councillor Marianna Ebel, joint chair of the Tourism, Equalities, Communities & Culture Committee added: “Exercise has a huge impact on both physical and mental health, so it’s great to see that our popular leisure centres are re-opening once again and welcoming back customers to enjoy exercise in a safe and secure environment. 

"I’m sure families across the city will enjoy visiting the centres in the run up to Christmas and well into the New Year.”

There will be some changes to programmes and opening hours over the Christmas and New Year period.
