Facilities at Pembrokeshire County Council’s Leisure Centres will begin to re-open in a phased and safe manner from Monday, 17th August.
Following further easing of Welsh Government restrictions, Pembrokeshire Leisure will be opening its doors for the use of fitness suites only in the first phase.
The fitness suites at Fishguard Leisure Centre, Haverfordwest Leisure Centre, Milford Haven Leisure Centre, Pembroke Leisure Centre and Tenby Leisure Centres will open from Monday, August 17th.
You must book and pay for your gym slot in advance.
Without a pre-booked slot you will not be able to gain access to the facilities. There will be no bookings or payments taken at the centres.
In order to make a reservation you will need to be a registered user of Pembrokeshire Leisure.
You can register via the website https://pembrokeshireleisure.co.uk/ or by calling 01437 775504, Monday to Thursday, 9am – 3pm. See below for further membership information.
Bookings can also be made via the website and telephone numbers above and through the Pembrokeshire Leisure app which is available to download on both Apple IOS and Android.
You will be able to book your session from Tuesday, 11th August onwards.
For everyone’s safety please do not attend any Pembrokeshire Leisure facilities if you are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms.
Users are asked to bring only a full water bottle (drinking fountains will not be in use), a towel and their Pembrokeshire Leisure Card for their exercise session.
Please note there will be no changing facilities available so please arrive dressed ready for your session.
Buildings may operate one-way systems and equipment may be set out differently than normal with some equipment set up in other areas of the centre to allow more space to exercise.
Those visiting with pre-booked appointments are respectfully asked to adhere to social distancing rules in operation.
There will be an enhanced cleaning operation in place with hand sanitising stations and customers will need to use the provided cleaning products to clean equipment before and after use.
The second phase, from Tuesday 1st September, will see Crymych Leisure Centre re-open and swimming pools, indoor fitness classes and facility hire available at all centres.
Again, all activities will be via pre-booked appointments only.
Further details will be released in due course, including opening arrangements for all of the remaining leisure facilities.
