Our new safety measures to help keep you safe include:

Please note and observe the following guidance when planning to visit our Centres:

Before your visit:

Visit only if you’re feeling well – to help keep everyone safe, only visit the Centre if you are feeling well and not showing any covid-19 symptoms, such as, a high temperature;  a new, continuous cough; a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

Arrive just on time for your activity – Please wait in your car, or outside of the Centre staying clear of the entrance, until a few minutes before your activity session is due to start, then proceed to entrance.

Arrive dressed for your activity – To avoid using changing rooms, visitors must arrive ‘beach ready’ for swimming and in sports kit for fitness and sports activities. Pool showers and changing cubicles will be available for rinsing-off and chaining after your swim session. Lockers will be available to store valuables.

Don’t meet in large groups – To help maintain social distancing, do not arrange to meet in large groups.

Wipe down equipment before and after use –  Use disinfectant provided to wipe down equipment before and after use to help ensure all visitors  can safely use the fitness suites, exercise classes and other facilities. As part of our increased cleaning schedules, we will be wiping down equipment before the next session is due to start.

Observe notices and signs – One-way system, floor markings and notices are placed around our Centres to help maintain social distancing and keeping everyone safe.

Don’t move furnishing or equipment – Furniture and equipment around our Centres has been positioned to help maintain social distancing. If you are required to move equipment as part of your activity, please return it after wiping down.

This allows 15 minutes to clean down equipment whilst also preventing queuing for the next class. There will be some minor change changes to the timetable and latest timetables will be published on the group exercise pages.

Are Aquafit classes still running? Aqua classes will still be running.  Additionally, hydro-spin will be running at Centre AT7 and Xcel Leisure Centre, plus Float Fit will be launching at the Alan Higgs Centre soon.

Will teachers be in the water with children during lessons? Currently for Duckling’s Lessons Only

When can we enrol into the Swimming School? We have currently held our enrolment and dates to follow

Children’s Parties

How can I get my refund for party booking that occurred whilst you were closed? Please e-mail reception at the relevant Centre from 25th July and a member of our team will contact you to resolve.

What happens to my current booking from 25th July onwards? Indoor play area parties will not be able to commence until Government Guidance restrictions are lifted for these areas.

Can I rebook my party? Yes, please contact reception at the Centre from 25th July a member of our team will contact you to make the booking.

Swimming and Sports

Are changing rooms available? Customers should arrive ready for activity, for example, wear swimming costume underneath their clothes (‘beach ready’) and simply place their clothes straight into a locker and enter poolside. Changing cubicles will be available after swimming to change into dry clothes but time in changing facilities should be kept to a minimum.

Can I use lockers? Yes, some lockers will be available for use with social distancing measures in place.

Can I book Badminton court (or other sports courts) when you reopen? We are closely following Government Guidance and National Governing Body guidelines and as and when restrictions are lifted for various sports we will recommence them within our facilities

What happens to my regular sports booking? We will welcome everyone back when permitted to do so and will contact you in due course.

Can I book a regular time slot for my sport? Yes by contacting reception at the desired centre to check availability

Children’s Activities

Why can’t I book single days? We are taking 3 day bookings to keep children in the same bubble throughout the week as the safety of your child is our number one priority. Your child will remain with the same group & coach for Monday, Wednesday & Friday. This has been put in place to reduce the risk of coronavirus infections.

What activities will my child be doing? All activities will be non-contact and delivered with no or limited equipment but will remain fun & engaging. Examples include but are not limited to: Athletics, Dance, Tennis, Gymnastics, Tri-Golf & more! Tag & invasion type games will not be permitted. We will be ensuring good cleaning practice for each session delivered & adhering to our new procedures. 

How will the sign in/out process work? When booking your child’s place, you will be asked to select a time slot for the week. There will be 3 options: 8.45am-3.45pm, 9am-4pm or 9.15am-4.15pm. These slots are staggered to allow only 10 children to sign in during this time. Registration and sign-out will take place outside the fire exit of the sports hall, to the left of the building. This will be clearly signed and marked out for all to follow.

How do I know my child will be safe? CV Life team members will have completed all necessary training prior to the summer holidays to ensure they are fully equipped to provide safe provision over the summer. Equipment & playing areas will be cleaned throughout the day, regular handwashing will be in place and children will remain in their bubbles throughout the week. Our sports hall will be deep cleaned before and after usage, having no activities running on Tuesday & Thursday will allow for extra cleaning of our facilities. Our existing policies and procedures have also been reviewed and updated to be COVID-19 compliant.

Will siblings be split up? Our Holiday Activities will be running in live with government guidance to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection. Therefore, children from the same household will not be split up & will be kept in the same bubble during the week. CV Life sports coaches will be adapting activities to suit the needs/ability of each child in the bubble. 

What happens if someone shows COVID-19 symptoms? If your child is displaying COVID-19 symptoms they will be removed from their bubble immediately and placed into a designated isolation room. Parents will be contacted immediately to come and collect their child. You will be instructed to follow government guidelines which currently involves contacting 111, arranging a test as soon as possible & remaining in isolation until you receive your test results. If the test is negative, you may return to our Holiday activities. If the test is positive you must inform CV Life immediately & remain in isolation until fourteen days have passed. In this instance, we will issue a credit note in line with our terms and conditions.

Will creche be available when you reopen? The creche remains closed for the time being as we await restrictions on indoor play area facilities being lifted.


Thank you for your ongoing understanding and support during this time.
