Thursday 10th September 2020

Following the latest Government announcements regarding new rules coming in to effect from Monday 14th September, we have been asked how does this effect Bridport Leisure Centre?

We are pleased to announce that with all of the measures that we have put in place – we ARE NOT affected by the new rulings.
Sport England released a statement last night confirming:
While social gatherings of more than six people will be banned in England from 14 September, the government’s confirmed that organised sports and activities that have been through a return to play protocols can continue, as can organise outdoor sports and physical activity events such as park run, which is due to return next month.
People can also continue to use leisure facilities, including gyms and pools – classes within these venues can continue as they are now. People should not go to these venues socially in groups of more than six.
That’s because these sports and activities have stringent plans in place to reduce the risk of Covid-19, and because these venues are classed as COVID-secure given the measures they’ve introduced.

September 2020 – Fitness Suite Tour

August 2020 – Our Pool is open!
