The wait is over for Halton residents who have been missing a swim and the gym during this national lockdown, as Halton’s leisure facilities at Kingsway and Brookvale get set to reopen on Monday 12 April. Runcorn Swimming Pool is temporarily closed for essential maintenance and is due to reopen in the near future.
The reopening is in line with the next step in the Government’s roadmap to lift COVID-19 restrictions.
Table tennis, badminton and squash will also be restarting, however, in line with the guidance, these activities can only take place between people from the same household/support bubble. Sports halls are available for qualified intructors, clubs, national governing bodies or charities to hire for under 18 supervised activity or for organised indoor team sports for disabled people.
