COVID-19: Sports update - March 2021

Following Government guidance, our Sport and Fitness Centres (including pools) remain closed.

We are currently following the Government's 'Roadmap' for the reopening of our services as follows:

Step 1 (subject to Government confirmation)

We are working towards the reopening of the Outdoor Pool only at Pools on the Park from Monday 29 March. Pay As You Go bookings will be released seven days in advance of reopening and we aim to be able to take bookings for outdoor lane swimming sessions from Monday 22 March onwards.

Pitches at Whitton Sports and Fitness Centre (Lincoln Field), Teddington Sports Centre and Shene Sports and Fitness Centre will also reopen to existing block bookings only from Monday 29 March. New pitch bookings will not be permitted initially, but you may register your interest by emailing leisure@richmond.gov.uk.

Step 2 (subject to Government confirmation)

We are working towards our indoor pools and gyms at Teddington Pools and Fitness Centre, Pools on the Park and Shene Sports and Fitness Centre reopening from 12 April. Pay As You Go bookings will be released from Tuesday 6 April onwards. Bookings for children or family groups will need to be made by phone on 020 3772 2999.

Feel Good Fitness memberships

Existing Direct Debit and Annual Members are being written to with further information on the reinstatement of their memberships. If you have not received any communication by 26 March, please let us know by emailing leisure@richmond.gov.uk.

Swim School update

We are working towards lessons resuming in early May 2021. However, as the Swim School has been suspended since March 2020, our priority will be to offer classes to existing pupils. Until this has been completed, we will not know whether there will be spaces available for new pupils to join the summer term lessons. Due to operating restrictions we will be running smaller capacity classes. We do not operate a waiting list, but will provide an update mid-April 2021 regarding new pupil spaces.

Further updates will be published on our website, via social media and on our LBRUT Sports App.
