how to access Maldwyn Leisure Centre under the 'new normal'

August 10 2020

We're super excited to be opening on 10th August 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.

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 right 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 can only accept contactless payments.  Please bring change with you if required, for lockers (poolside only) or vending products.

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

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.
