Pools and gyms to re-open

The government has announced that pools and gyms are to be allowed to re-open from 25 July 2020, with outdoor pools allowed to re-open from 11 July 2020.

Read the government’s announcement.

While the government has made this announcement, it should be recognised that this is only an enabling regulation – it may take longer for pool operators to bring back their staff and make pools available to the public. Swim England envisages it taking two to three weeks for pool operators to recommission facilities.

The club currently has no information from Places Leisure or Wandsworth Council as to when Tooting Leisure Centre will re-open.
