Leisure centres in Market Harborough and Lutterworth are preparing to re-open when the current four-week coronavirus lockdown ends.

Harborough Leisure Centre on Northampton Road, Market Harborough, and Lutterworth Sports Centre on Coventry Road, Lutterworth, are both managed by Everyone Active along with Harborough District Council.

And you will be able to go back in to them from Wednesday December 2 following a month’s closure due to the pandemic.

The Government has confirmed all leisure centres across all tiers will be safe to re-open with strict operational measures in place.

However, local restrictions mean some activities are not available at some centres.

Full information on how the tier system affects your local centre is available here: https://www.everyoneactive.com/reopeningmeasures/Matthew Hopkin, Everyone Active’s contract manager, said: “We’re very much looking forward to re-opening our centres and welcoming back the local community.

“After being closed for a month, this announcement from Government is the news the leisure industry has been eagerly awaiting.”

He added: “It is very important to give people the opportunity to resume activity and exercise in their leisure centre, particularly during the winter months.

“This will go a long way to maintaining the good health of local communities.

“We would like to thank the 615,000 people across the country who signed the petition we supported to keep gyms open, which triggered a Parliamentary debate, and to acknowledge the impressive manner in which the leisure industry has pulled together.

“We would also like to thank Harborough District Council for their support, which has proved invaluable during this challenging year.

“Ensuring our colleagues and customers remain safe is our number one priority and we have carefully considered the strict measurements to ensure we adhere to the guidance.

“We will be contacting all customers directly over the coming days regarding the centres re-opening.

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