Harborough Leisure Centre in Market Harborough and Lutterworth Sports Centre will throw their doors back open to customers after being shut for over three months.

Leisure centres in Harborough are to reopen to people next Monday (April 12) as the country continues to come out of the Covid lockdown.

Harborough Leisure Centre in Market Harborough and Lutterworth Sports Centre will throw their doors back open to customers after being shut for over three months.

The two popular sports and activity hubs are both managed by sports and leisure operator Everyone Active alongside Harborough District Council.

“The Government confirmed on Monday, April 5 that leisure centres would be safe to reopen with strict operational measures in place,” said an Everyone Active spokesman.

“This is the latest stage of the four-step roadmap and follows the reopening of several outdoor activities at Everyone Active sites on Monday, March 29.

“The Government’s roadmap includes detail on which facilities can reopen within each step, meaning some may not be available in the first instance.”

“While its 200 leisure centres across the country have been closed, Everyone Active has provided a comprehensive package of online workouts for people to use, along with livestreamed classes across its social media pages."

Matthew Hopkin, Everyone Active’s contract manager, said: “We’re very much looking forward to reopening our centres and welcoming back the local community.

“After being closed for three months, the latest step in the Government’s roadmap is a positive move forward for the leisure industry and gives people of all ages the opportunity to resume activity and exercise in their leisure centre.”

He added: “Ensuring our colleagues and customers remain safe continues to be our number one priority and we have carefully considered the strict measures to ensure we adhere to the guidance.

“We will be contacting all customers directly over the coming days regarding the reopening of centres.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone back and thank them for their patience.”
