In with a splash as leisure centres set to re-open in North East Derbyshire

The three District Council leisure centres in Dronfield, Eckington and Clay Cross are set to re-open their doors on 25 July 2020 with new safety measures in place.

The three centres will be open from 8 am at Dronfield and Eckington and from 9 am at Sharley Park Leisure Centre.

Things will be different when open, as social distancing measures will be in place, hand sanitizing facilities available and safety is the number one priority for staff and members who are in attendance.

To prepare leisure centres for the re-opening, the authority has made available useful information on its website highlighting what they can expect on their return and a frequently asked questions section for enquiries.

There will be gym and swimming slots available over the opening weekend which will need to be booked. To book, please visit the North East Derbyshire District Council website for further information on how to do this.

North East Derbyshire District Council Cabinet Member for Leisure, Councillor Jeremy Kenyon said: “It is great to be able to announce that our leisure facilities can now re-open for our communities to enjoy. The leisure staff have been hard at work ensuring vital safety measures are in place for yours and the staff’s safety – which is paramount.”

“Our leisure centres are at the heart of our communities and we look forward to welcoming you back safely to enjoy our facilities once more.”

A reduced fitness class timetable will operate at each site from Monday 27th July 2020. This too can be found on the Council website and places will need to be pre booked. Bookings can be made online via the Leisure Hub:

The period of July 25th 2020 to July 31st 2020 will be given as free of charge to Supersavers, JDM Direct Debit and Annual members.
