how to access Llanidloes Sports Centre under the 'new normal'

August 25 2020

We're super excited to be opening on 1st September and getting you back to exercise at your favourite Sports 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 and on stairs 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 prefer to accept contactless payments.  Please bring change with you if required, for lockers (poolside only) or vending products.

Water fountains will be unavailable, 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.  Please book your session over the phone and each booked session you attend.

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

9:00-10:00am

classes

All fitness classes MUST be booked in advance.  You will no longer be able to just walk into the centre for your workout.  Please book your session over the phone and each booked session you attend.

Ideally customers should bring their own mats for classes. If using our centre mats please ensure these are fully sanitised after use. 

Our classes will mainly take place in the school gym and squash court.  We have altered maximum customer numbers per class to suit the room.

racket sports

You are able to book regular and one off badminton courts from 1st September although you will have to follow current Government guidence. For badminton, you may play against someone outside of your bubble providing that you follow advice of regular hand sanitising and avoid touching your face after sharing of any equipment.

Squash, at the moment is unavilable as we are using this space to maximise fitness classes.

cleaning

We have implemented and enhanced our cleaning regime throughout the centre.  All areas will be cleaned regularly. It is essential that members clean down each machine after use – equipment may not be shared unless it has been cleaned down between uses.

Hygiene stations are available in all high-touch areas offering hand sanitiser and medical-grade disinfectant and sanitising wipes.

Personal gym towels are permitted but please use wipes and paper towels provided when cleaning down equipment and dispose of them after each use.
