To comply with physical distancing regulations and to ensure a fair allocation of time for each customer we will be allocating one hour time slots for the gym, fitness classes and swimming. The one hour time slot will include the allowance for safe arrival, movement through the centre, changing and leaving the premises.

Timetables and activity time slots will be made available and bookable on the Better UK app once we reopen.
