CUSTOMER ANNOUNCEMENT

17th SEPTEMBER 2021

A number of our operating services will resume on Monday 20th September including increased access to buildings and increasing session capacity, in a number of our leisure centres. 

Customers will be able to directly access West Kirby Concourse, Europa Pools, Guinea Gap Leisure Centre and Wirral Tennis Centre. Capacity will increase significantly in gym, swimming and class sessions meaning that more customers will be able to access these sessions.  

As access to swimming  and gyms increases it will no longer be essential for customers to pre book and pay prior to arrival however customers are advised that pre booking and paying for activities online will guarantee access to the activities of their choice.

Exercise class capacity will also be increased where possible at these sites, for both indoor and outdoor sessions, where applicable. It is essential that all Exercise Classes are pre-booked and paid online, at centres or by telephone prior to the session start time.

Invigor8 Memberships can be reinstated by telephoning the central leisure team on 0151 606 2010 or email or bookingsandinformation@wirral.gov.uk  

As part of the expansion of services, we will still be retaining extensive high visibility COVID-19 safety advisory notices within our centres including advising customers to wear masks in public spaces and to give others space and time to finish their activity.   

Fitness facilities at Leasowe and Oval Leisure Centres will continue to operate within the current operating procedures and all activities at these centres must continue to pre book and pay prior to arrival at the centre. 

Woodchurch Leisure Centre will remain as a dedicated vaccination site and the Sports Hall at the Oval Leisure Centre is also continuing to be used for vaccinations.

Further information regarding the reopening of Sports halls, squash courts and cafes will follow soon. 

The provision of services will be monitored against all local COVID-19 data, and kept under review on a six-weekly cycle. Sustainability of services has been at the forefront of the authority’s approach to re-mobilisation although business continuity may still be affected due to COVID-19; in the event of localised outbreaks at sites, or staff shortages, operations at sites may have to be suspended.

We look forward to welcoming more customers back from Monday
