Dorset Council leisure centres to re-open

Hurrah! Dorset Council’s leisure centres are to re-open from Saturday 25 July – and yes this does include indoor swimming pools.


Social distancing measures will be in place in all the centres, together with rigorous cleaning regimes. Touch-points, such as door handles and railings, and all equipment will be cleaned regularly and hand sanitising stations positioned around the buildings. Centre employees are receiving COVID-19 training to help them understand and implement plans for the safety of customers.

Councillor Tony Alford, Dorset Council’s Portfolio Holder for Customer, Community and Regulatory Services, said, “Our sports and leisure centres play an important role in the health of Dorset’s communities, so we are looking forward to opening our doors again.

“We’d like to reassure everyone that we have implemented strict measures to ensure the cleanliness and safety of our centres. This information can be found on our web pages and we would ask people to familiarise themselves with the detail prior to attending their centre.”

Full details of activities available, opening times and booking and payment arrangements can be found on each centre’s webpage, which will be updated as we approach 25 July to ensure information is up to date before re-opening.
