Guildford Spectrum announces reopening date

Published at 10:00am 25th July 2020.

Guildford Spectrum has announced it will be welcoming back visitors from next Saturday (1 August). 

A booking system will be in place for all activities including lane swimming and visits will be time-limited to ensure capacity levels are not exceeded.

Freedom Leisure which runs the facility along with Ash Manor says there will be increased cleaning at the centres along with hand sanitiser stations available throughout.  

Only cashless payment will be accepted and contact details will be taken from every customer to support the Government’s track and trace system.

It comes as leisure centres and gyms are officially allowed to reopen today (25 July).


Ivan Horsfall-Turner, Managing Director Freedom Leisure, said:

“Freedom Leisure is delighted to be reopening Guildford Spectrum and Ash Manor Sports Centre.

"Our teams are working hard to make sure the centres are ready and waiting to welcome back the local community.

"A lot of planning and work has already been done, and our focus is on making sure our centres are ready and provide the reassurance our customers need to return – their wellbeing and that of our staff is at the heart of our preparations to reopen.

"We look forward to seeing everyone very soon.”

Councillor James Steel said has welcomed the announcement:

"Keeping fit, active and healthy is extremely important for all ages, even more so after the restrictions we’ve needed to follow in order to keep safe from the Coronavirus.

"It will be great to see our sports communities take steps towards coming back together in the ‘new normal’.

"Thank you to all the staff involved for their hard work to thoroughly prepare the centres with social distancing measures and cleaning to ensure that both staff and residents are kept safe.” 

The ice rink is expected to open in mid to late August once the ice has been re-laid and prepared.
