Latest News - Holsworthy Leisure Centre to open on the 1st June

Holsworthy Leisure Centre is getting ready to reopen on the 1st June starting with the Gym and sports hall with a small group exercise programme returning on 7th June.

We aim to reopen the pool on the 21st June, and restart swim lessons on the 1st July. We have some important maintenance work being completed in the pool which starts on the 1st June and will take around 2 weeks to complete, so we are not able to open the pool any earlier.

For any sports clubs or groups that want to book or rebook the sports hall – please can you email me on mbaxter@1610.org.uk

We have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure our Centres are safe, fresh and in line with Government guidelines and advice from Swim England, UK Active and Public Health England.

Unfreezing your membership

As you paid by Direct Debit your membership payments will automatically restart – this will take place from 1st June 2021 and will remain on your previous direct debit collection date. Customers may have their 1st payment adjusted to compensate for any money owed following the lockdown.

If you’re not ready to come back

We understand if you are not ready to return just yet or want to wait until the pool reopens, and will therefore continue to offer members the option to freeze your membership up until the 21st June, when it is proposed that all Covid restrictions will be lifted and the pool will have reopened. After this period our normal terms and conditions around freezing memberships will apply.

You can still use the facility on a pay as you go basis if you do decide to use the facility on a pay and go basis.

If you want to freeze your membership, please email your request at info@1610.org.uk by 25th May, this will allow us enough time to administer your request before your first direct debit is due to be taken. Please note that payments will begin collecting from the month following the end of your freeze.

If you had an annual membership, this will be extended for the time that we have been closed to ensure that you receive your full 12-month membership.

Safety Measures

We are confident in our ability to minimise the risk of infection to keep you and our staff safe. We have implemented enhanced cleaning procedures and social distancing measures in all areas of our centres to create a safe environment for you to visit. These include:

*Sanitising stations installed at key locations around the centre
