Following the latest government guidance, it is not mandatory for people to wear face masks in leisure centres and wearing them during exercise is not advised.

We would however, like to encourage all members and employees to wear a face mask/covering in communal areas whilst at the centre unless exempt. This includes corridors, reception, viewing balconies for both the Sports hall and Pool. 

Please be respectful of other users, especially those who may be more vulnerable. Aspire is located within the grounds of the RNOH (Hospital) and there are many vulnerable patients. 

We are still operating with reduced capacity in classes, the gym and swimming pool as well as maintaining good ventilation and additional cleaning. 

The Swimschool will still operate a one-way system using the pool fire exits. Children should come swim ready with clothes, onesies, dressing gowns and ideally a hat over the top. They can then take this off on poolside and put them in one of the baskets provided*.

* We do not expect children to be outside in their swimming costumes. 

Thank you

Dean Tearle, Centre Manager
