Members no longer need to book Gym, Swimming and Sauna & Steam sessions. Non-members can still use the online booking system and Castle Point Leisure App to book. All Group Exercise Classes and Sports Hall activities will still need to be booked as normal.
Fire Exit Doors
During Covid restrictions we removed the alarms for the fire exit doors to make it safer for everyone to avoid unnecessary contact with others whilst walking through the building. We have kept this in place ever since. However, this has had an impact on how we operate our centres and has made it difficult for our staff to operate effectively. Therefore, we will be arming all fire exit doors with an alarm again from Monday 23rd May.
From Monday please make sure you use the main entrance and exit to enter and leave the building.
