The health and safety of our customers and staff is our number one priority.
What we are doing to keep you safe and active:
Facility and activity bookings
To help us safely manage capacities and following government guidelines, we will require booking for all activities, including the fitness suite and the swimming pool at The Edge.
We will provide further details of how to book online for The Edge, and we are taking steps to make this as easy as possible for our customers.
All activity at Sports Park Weetwood and Bodington will require bookings as normal, this will also apply to the pay and pedal sessions on the cycle circuit. Due to this we will be asking customers not to visit our facilities without a booking to help keep everyone safe. Bookings for Sport Park Weetwood and Bodington can be made via the usual channels on our contact us page.
One-way systems and social distancing
To help keep customers a safe distance from others there will be one-way systems in place, and signage to indicate direction of travel. We will also be reducing occupancy levels in line with guidance within each area of our facility.
New cleaning protocols
We have enhanced cleaning protocols which follow the latest advice from the relevant authorities. This includes increased frequencies, scheduled cleans after each activity where required and the purchasing of new equipment to support the new cleaning protocols. Additionally, designated cleaning stations will allow you to clean down equipment after use where required, ready for the next user.
Hand sanitising stations and equipment cleaning stations for customers will be available to use throughout the facilities.
Changing rooms and toilets
We will follow the latest guidance on the opening of our changing rooms when we reopen each facility. On reopening of all facilities toilets and sinks will be available for use, however, in the first phase of opening there will be no changing facilities, lockers or access to showers. However, if using the swimming pool at The Edge you will be allocated a cubicle and locker prior to entering the pool, which will then be cleaned after each use.
On receptions we will have protective screens, and staff will be issued with protective equipment where required. We are following the University guidance on face coverings, which must be worn in all indoor communal areas on campus, for example, main public corridors and communal toilets. Face coverings can be removed once in the area for your pre-booked activity, for example, once you have entered the fitness suite, exercise studio or when leaving your cubicle ahead of entering the swimming pool area.
On your visit our colleagues will be on hand throughout the building if you have any questions or need any support. We will also share further guidance and information for your visit prior to us reopening and when you make your booking.
