Welcome back to Life Leisure

Things might look at little different and social distancing may be the ‘new normal’, but we can assure you that you will still receive a 1st class experience when coming back to our leisure centres.

We have introduced some extra safety measures following Government guidelines to make sure your feel comfortable and confident when exercising in our centres. Cleaning measures have been redefined and we have provided access to sanitizing stations in all areas. We have limited centre capacity to make sure social distancing is adhered to and educated our staff on our new measures to ensure we can provide a safe environment for all.

Take a look at our video to find out what to expect when coming back to our centres. 

Bookings for Stockport Sports Village & Houldsworth Village will be going live at 6.30am Thursday 23rd July.

Our phased reopening plan

lifeLEISURE have been working hard to get the centres ready for opening. This has been an unprecedented time for us all. As a Charitable Trust, lifeLEISURE manage facilities owned by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council (SMBC) and we are working closely with the Council on a phased reopening strategy for SMBC owned sites which is affordable and serves as many Stockport communities as possible. 

We will not be in a position to open SMBC owned sites on 25thJuly, but once we have reopening dates, we’ll communicate these to our customers.

We would like to thank you for your continued patience.
