Key information ahead of your return to Tenbury Swimming Pool

October 1 2020

We're super excited to be re-opening on Monday 12th October and to welcome you back to exercise at your favourite Leisure Centre. However, things are going to be a little different to when we closed in March.

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 available if required, i.e., if you are training prior to heading off to work. Customers are asked to come prepared i.e. beach ready, with swim wear worn under clothing to minimise your time spent in changing rooms.

Lockers will now require you to have a padlock to be able to lock them, we will have padlocks available to purchase from reception or you can bring your own from home.

Contactless payments are preferable at this time.

Our water fountains will be available in the gym, however we do advise that you bring a pre-filled water bottle 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 we are advising to book in advance.

Please book your session online or via the phone, we will need your e-mail address on our system and you’ll need a pin number if you haven’t got this please contact us via reception.

Please ensure you arrive for your allotted session on time.  Late entrants may have a shortened session as we will have to clean the gym ahead of the following session to allow as many people as possible to use the facility each day. Sessions will be 90 minutes in length maximum.
