Leader of Rushcliffe Borough Council Cllr Simon Robinson said: “We continue to work closely with our leisure centre contractors to take the necessary steps to ensure facilities can reopen securely and at the right time.

“The pandemic has had a significant impact on the whole of the community and the economy with the leisure sector being hit particularly hard.

“Therefore we wish to maximise the ability for Rushcliffe residents to participate in leisure activities whilst making important decisions on the timings of centre openings.

“Wherever possible we are repurposing gym space, fitness suites and sports halls at each site to maximise participation for group exercise, complying with both social distancing guidelines and participation rates. 

“We thank local groups and clubs who use our facilities who have been engaged in this process. 

“We need to open the centre at Keyworth at a later date when it is safe to do so but we will keep all residents and leisure centre users fully up to date on when this could reopen.”
