how to access Llanfyllin sports centre under the 'new normal'

We're super excited to be opening on 1st September and getting you back to exercise at your favourite Leisure Centre.  However, things are going to be a little different to when we closed in March.

We've been working hard to make sure the safety of our customers and staff is our number one focus. We will be following our 'COVID-safety-matters' guidelines and maintaining social distancing within the centre and having a robust and thorough cleaning regime in place to ensure all our customers have the best environment to maintain their physical and mental wellbeing.

general changes

There will be clear signage showing the routes you are required to take around the centre and areas that are out of use. If in any doubt, please keep to the left hand side in corridors at all times.

Changing rooms and showers will be unavailable except for those using our swimming pools. Customers are asked to come prepared i.e. beach ready, with swim wear worn under clothing to minimise your time spent in changing rooms.

We can only accept contactless payments.  Please bring change with you if required for  vending products.

Please bring pre-filled water bottles with you.

Our staff will be on hand as always but please remember to respect the social distancing rule when requesting assistance from our team members


gym

All fitness sessions at the centre MUST be booked in advance.  You will no longer be able to just walk into the centre for your workout.  

Monthly & Annual members can book 5 days in advance. Non-members can book 1 day in advance.

Please ensure you arrive for your allotted session on time.  Late entrants will still be required to leave after their booked gym session time which is one hour and will not be permitted to stay longer.  This will allow us time to clean the area before the next session and to allow as many people as possible to use the facility each day.

The gym will have limited numbers in there to give you confidence and space to enjoy your session.

The bookable slots are as follows;

Monday to Friday (PM)

3.45pm - 4.45pm, 5.15pm - 6.15pm, 6.45pm - 7.45pm, 8.15pm - 9.15pm

As part of our phased return, the swimming pool will reopen from Monday 1st September.

All pool sessions at the centre MUST be booked in advance.  You will no longer be able to just walk into the centre for your swim.  Monthly & Annual members can book 5 days in advance. Non-members can book 1 day in advance.

Please ensure you arrive for your allotted session on time.  Late entrants will still be required to leave after their booked swim session time which is 45 minutes and will not be permitted to stay longer. Please shower quickly and leave the changing room promptly. Only two permitted in these areas at a time.

The lane swimming sessions will have limited numbers in there to give you confidence and space to enjoy your session.

We have also introduced Family POD sessions, where you can book one of the 2 pod areas of the pool for your family (please ensure you have booked the correct area to be suitable for all members of the pod), with a maximum of 5 per POD.  Please phone reception to book a POD.
