Crawley leisure centres K2 and The Bewbush Centre set to reopen next week
Local leisure centres in Crawley are set to reopen from Monday 12 April, after receiving the government’s go ahead for Step 2 of the roadmap.
K2 Crawley and The Bewbush Centre managed by sports and leisure operator Everyone Active in partnership with Crawley Borough Council will reopen their doors following a three-month closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Government confirmed on Monday 5 April that leisure centres would be safe to reopen with strict operational measures in place. This is the latest stage of the four-step roadmap plan and follows the reopening of several outdoor activities at Everyone Active sites on Monday 29 March, including Broadfield 3G Pitch.
The Government’s roadmap includes detail on which facilities can reopen within each step, meaning some may not be available at the centre in the first instance. For details about which facilities can reopen in each step and the latest guidance, click here.
Everyone Active has committed to keeping its customers safe and active, ensuring it will meet and exceed Government guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19 with the Everyone Active Pledge. Full detail on the operator’s pledge and safety measures can be found here.
While its 200 leisure centres across the country have been closed, Everyone Active has provided a comprehensive package of online workouts for people to use, along with live streamed classes across its social media pages.
Jon Hodgson, Everyone Active’s contract manager, said: “We’re very much looking forward to reopening our centres and welcoming back the local community.
“After being closed for three months, the latest step in the Government’s Roadmap is a positive move forward for the leisure industry and gives people of all ages the opportunity to resume activity and exercise in their leisure centre.
“Ensuring our colleagues and customers remain safe continues to be our number one priority and we have carefully considered the strict measurements to ensure we adhere to the guidance.
“We will be contacting all customers directly over the coming days regarding the centres reopening. We look forward to welcoming everyone back and thank them for their patience.”
