Covid-19 / Coronavirus Information

Leisure Centres and Sports

Our leisure centres remain closed. We are very concerned by the continuing high rates of Covid-19 across Northern Ireland. Within this context and the fact that usage of our pools and gyms before the previous lockdown was very low, the decision to reopen leisure centres would have been a very unbalanced one, just weeks before Christmas, when they would be closed again. We look forward to welcoming you back to our leisure centres when it is safe to do so, and in the meantime, we continue to offer a wide range of online fitness and leisure activities, as well as stunning parks and walkways across Mid and East Antrim.
