COVID-19 (coronavirus) Announcement

Manchester is facing difficult and challenging times ahead with the spread of COVID-19 and whilst we fully understand how important physical and leisure activities play in peoples well being, the safety of our staff, volunteers and users is our top priority therefore From 10pm (Friday 20 March) all leisure and sports centres operated on behalf of Manchester City Council will close to the public until further notice. We are working closely with our leisure operators to ensure existing memberships are protected and honoured so that service users are unaffected once the facilities reopen.

We are working hard to identify alternative ways in which residents can stay active during this period of change. There is a great deal that we can all do to keep active in our homes, in our parks and in our neighbourhoods. An active life brings huge benefits to people’s physical and mental wellbeing, particularly during times of stress and anxiety. Being active, eating well and taking good care of ourselves is vital for our resilience. Please keep in touch by following us @MCRActive and tagging #MCRactive in any fun and different ways you are keeping active over the weeks ahead.
