Following the government daily coronavirus briefing on 17 June, the Culture Secretary confirmed that the government hoped to reopen Leisure Centres to the public in July.
Elmbridge officers have been working closely with Places Leisure for several weeks to plan for the reopening of the Xcel Leisure Complex, the Xcel Sports Hub and Hurst Pool. The safety of our staff and customers is paramount and we will seek to reopen our facilities in a planned and measured approach but only when safe and feasible to do so and in accordance with recent government and industry guidance.
To ensure that all of our facilities can meet the social distancing and Public Health guidelines, measures are being put in place at all of our facilities, including limiting numbers in all activity areas, advance booking, queuing systems and increased cleaning. Please bear with us while we finalise these arrangements, further announcements will be made in due course.
For further information, please see our Coronavirus (COVID-19) page.
The Xcel Leisure Complex is managed by Places for People Leisure Management Ltd in partnership with us at Elmbridge Borough Council.
