    Leisure Centres to close from 10pm Wednesday 30 December 2020

    Following the latest Government announcement that Derbyshire will be moving to Tier 4, we are sorry to say that once again our centres will be closing.

    Our centres will close at 10pm this evening until further notice.

    More information will be added to our website and social media channels in the following days.

    We will continue to offer daily online workouts to help keep you active whilst at home.

    Due to the timing of the Government announcement it is not possible for us to stop direct debit collections for 1 January 2021.

    If your direct debit is usually collected on the first of the month, no payment will be taken in the first month back after reopening. Other direct debits will not be collected during this period. Anyone with a pre-paid membership will have the closure period added to the end of the current contract.
