The much-anticipated date for the reopening of Enderby Leisure and Golf Centre has been announced by Blaby District Council and Everyone Active.

Enderby Leisure and Golf Centre, will reopen the gyms and group exercise studios on Saturday 01 August. The news comes after the facilities were forced to close for almost four months due to the coronavirus pandemic. Enderby’s golf facilities successfully reopened in May.

The swimming pool facilities will open on 20 August for bookable lane swimming only, and swim lessons will recommence on 22 August. Customers will be communicated to directly regarding the details for reopening via www.everyoneactive.com

Huncote Leisure Centre will remain closed in the short term only, with the intention of reopening by 01 November. Both Blaby District Council and Everyone Active hope that the demand for activity will mean the centre will be able to open earlier than this and all customers will be communicated to directly regarding the reopening of Huncote Leisure Centre.

Given the close geographical proximity to Enderby Leisure Centre, members at Huncote Leisure Centre will be able to use Enderby’s facilities when it reopens on 1 August.

Everyone Active have been working to comply with government guidelines on the safe reopening of the leisure centres. All information about the measures in place, and what this means for members using the leisure facilities can be found at www.everyoneactive.com.

Councillor Sharon Coe, Portfolio Holder for Health, Wellbeing and Regulatory Services at Blaby District Council, said: “The reopening of Enderby Leisure Centre on 01 August is fantastic news. We know that members are excited to get back to using the newly-refurbished facilities and resume their leisure activities.

“At Blaby District Council we are committed to a strong and enduring relationship, and are confident that Everyone Active’s hard work will ensure the Leisure Centre is as safe as possible when it reopens.”

James Naylor, Contract Manager for Everyone Active, said, said: “We’re very much looking forward to reopening the centres and welcoming back the local community. After being closed for nearly four months, this latest announcement from Government is the news the leisure industry has been eagerly awaiting.

“Giving people the opportunity to resume activity and exercise in their leisure centre will go a long way to maintaining the good health of local communities.”
