King Alfred Leisure Centre due to re-open
Freedom Leisure has announced that King Alfred Leisure Centre, operated in partnership with Brighton & Hove City Council, will reopen its doors on Saturday 15 August.
All facilities will be open, apart from the swimming pool which will open on Monday 17 August.
Things will look a bit different at the centre to adhere to Covid-19 government guidance but, after four months of closure, staff are eager to make sure everybody has a positive and safe experience as they return to use their local community facilities.
Sessions for the pool and swimming, as well as group exercise classes, will need to be pre-booked. Booking will be available for members five days in advance and one day in advance for non-members.
Customers will be updated on the programmes, booking process and its availability early next week.
Ivan Horsfall-Turner, Managing Director of Freedom Leisure, said: “Freedom Leisure is delighted to be reopening King Alfred on 15 August. We are working hard to make sure our centres are ready and waiting to welcome back the local community, and we look forward to seeing everyone very soon.”
Councillor Marianna Ebel, joint chair of the Tourism, Equalities, Communities & Culture Committee added: “This is great news which I’m sure will be welcomed by hundreds of residents keen to return to their regular sporting activities in a safe and well managed environment.”
