Our Centres are open and ready for you to return to exercise with us.

On Monday 14th June the government announced a delay to their step four roadmap, lifting further restrictions by at least four weeks. It is a real shame as cases remain low for us in Teignbridge; however, the guidance remains as it is, but let us keep it positive. We could see all restrictions lifted in four weeks, which means increased gym, swim, and exercise class spaces. In addition, we will add additional activities to our centre timetables such as netball, adult swimming lessons, more junior exercise classes, including Trampolining - keep an eye out for this. We will update and confirm once the government make a further announcement in four weeks. 

Until then, here is a reminder of what the government announcement means for us. 

Our centres will continue to operate in a COVID secure way. Please continue to pre-book all activities with us on our Teignbridge Leisure App or your MyProfile account. You must arrive at the time of the activity, self-swipe on arrival to support the track and trace initiative and to confirm your attendance with us. 

The following activities remain with no change:

  • Gym.
  • Lane swimming.
  • Adult and junior group exercise.
  • Children's swimming lessons.
  • Supervised junior gym sessions.
  • Family swims.
  • Household racket sports (badminton, squash, and table tennis).

All the above activities will continue with COVID secure measures in place. 

As we move through the coming weeks and receive further guidance and information, we will continue to update our app, email, and Facebook - so please keep in touch for updates.
