Coronavirus (Covid-19): Restrictions Easing

From Monday 19th July 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. 

Face coverings are no longer essential. However, we strongly recommend customers to continue to wear face coverings in our centres. All staff members will continue to wear a face covering around the centre where appropriate. 

Although restrictions are now easing we must stress that not all will feel comfortable with this change and will need time to adapt. Please respect others during the time that we acclimatise to our new normal. If others wish to distance, please give them the space where possible to do so.

See full updates and details regarding restrictions easing and your membership.

The Fort

THE FORT IS NOW OPEN!

Waterside Farm Leisure Centre is the home of The Fort that is an extension to our original Fitness Suite by extending our current free weights area and introducing a state of the art functional zone.

The area incorporates a mixture of strength and functional equipment including multiple rigs and a high tech track down the middle. The rigs will include several squat racks, peg walls, landmines, pull up bars, rope climbs, boxing zones, Olympic ring stations and a 13 metre sled track all providing the perfect workout area for your own workouts and our newly designed Fort group exercise classes. All rigs have been designed and made by BeaverFit using top grade British made Steel.

The Fort isn’t the only addition with an extension of the current free weights area with the installation of our new beast rack with lifting platforms and 5 new Hammer Strength plate loaded resistance machines and a new HD Elite cable machine to make the perfect zone no matter your training goal!
