Facility closure: 13th December / 10th January

The Edge

December 13 – 

On Friday 13 December we will be closing our Sport & Physical Activity facilities (The Edge, Gryphon Sports Centre, Cromer Terrace and Sports Park Weetwood) early at 6:30pm.

This closure will be to allow essential maintenance of the facilities which will result in the temporary loss of heating and hot water during the evening.

The facilities will be available as usual from 6:30am – 6:30pm with the exception of Gryphon Sports Centre which will be closed for the full day.

 

January 10 – 

On Friday 10 January we will be closing our Sport & Physical Activity facilities (The Edge, Gryphon Sports Centre, Cromer Terrace and Sports Park Weetwood) between 9am-5pm.

The Edge will be open from 6:30am until 9am and from 5pm until 10:30pm.

The closure will allow us to undertake a number of important activities to improve the experience of our customers, which includes:

  • Training and development for our staff to help us maintain service delivery excellence.
  • Deep cleaning of a number of our facilities at The Edge, including [ADD IN EXAMPLES]. To perform this type of cleaning we are required to close the facility and it is an important part of our cleaning programme.

We endeavour to keep facility closures to a minimum but we recognise the benefits of these important activities for our colleagues and customers.

To minimise disruption for our customers we have identified a quieter period to undertake these activities, and we hope you will still be able to join us at the available times for your workout.

Alternatively, if you would like a lunchtime workout on the 10th of January, we have arranged for a lunchtime circuit class to take place at our Cromer Terrace studio on the day.

This will take place at 12:00 – 13:00, Circuits, Cromer Terrace Studio and will be bookable as a normal class online and at reception.

Your card is your key – no card means no entry

To ensure you have the best experience possible at The Edge, from the 14 October 2019 we will be improving the way we manage card access to our facilities. To be fair to all of our members, you will need to bring your Student ID or Membership Card for every visit to gain entry.

This is part of our commitment to improve your experience. By introducing this we aim to reduce queuing times to give you quicker entry to facilities and give staff more time to assist you during your visit. It will also help to reduce the misuse of cards by preventing customers from giving their card to visitors who have not paid to use the facilities, this will help us to make it fair for everyone.

For more information please contact edgemembershipservices@leeds.ac.uk.

Thank you for your understanding.

  • Dance Fit led by Kiran
  • Zumba led by Vicente and Annica
  • Yoga led by Kiran

If you enjoyed the event and want to see more we’ll be back outside the Union on 1 October.
