We will put the restriction to indoor fitness classes, including its self-funded health and wellbeing programme which supports people living with long-term conditions, adult swimming lessons and indoor sports such as racquet sports, unless both players are from the same household, into effect on Friday, November 13. The measure will be in place until Scottish Government advice states that it is appropriate for adult indoor group exercise and sports to resume.
Customers will still be able to enjoy our gyms, swimming pools and outdoor pitches. Activities designed for under 18s, including swimming lessons, will also be unaffected.
Emma Walker, chief executive for Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, said: “We are acting in line with the Scottish Government’s COVID local protection measures, and, following the confirmation that Fife is now in Level 3, we will no longer be able to offer our fitness class and health and wellbeing programmes and organised indoor sports for adults.
“The health and safety of our customers and staff is our number one priority, and we understand that customers, who have been enjoying our fitness programme and sports hall activities since we re-opened our facilities across the region, will be disappointed. However, as we have extremely good health and safety and social distancing measures in place, we are in a good position to resume our programme as quickly as possible when permitted.”
Fitness class and health and wellbeing participants, as well as Leisure Active members and those with sports hall bookings will be notified of the change to our service.
Customers are being encouraged to visit the trust’s website at www.fifeleisure.org and social media pages for the latest information.
