Mason Moore | Hinckley Reporter | 14 April 2021
HINCKLEY Leisure Centre have re-opened their doors two days ago to fitness fanatics and gym-goers who want to go and get active once again, in line with the Government guidelines, as the lockdown restrictions have started to ease.
It joined many other indoor sports facilities and gyms in re-opening just two days ago back on Monday 12 April, the same day that non-essential retailers and al-fresco diners were given the thumbs up to re-open as a part of the Government’s recently announced ‘road map out of lockdown’.
At the time of publication (14 April), the following facilities are open and trading to the public, in a list that has been confirmed and produced by Hinckley Leisure Centre themselves and posted on to their official website:
- Main pool
- Community pool
- Sports hall
Temporarily closed facilities
Whilst it is good news that the aforementioned facilities have re-opened to members, only four facilities remain temporarily out of bounds.
- Indoor cycling studio
- Soft play
Still a vaccination hub
Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council have reminded residents that the Centre will continue to trade as a vaccination hub on days where the vaccine is still being handed out on-site, and as a result they are expecting the car park to be busier on these days.
Whilst this is not ideal for those wanting to park on-site at the Centre, they issued an apology on their Twitter account to members for any inconvenience that this may cause.
The Council have suggested another car park that they may park nearby to avoid car park chaos.
They have suggested the Castle Car Park on Hill Street at the rear of the Jasper’s of Hinckley department store next to the Mead, as car parking permits are accepted there.
The same rules apply at this car park as they do at the Leisure Centre – pay for one hour of parking and get up to three hours of parking, as long as a ticket is displayed with a permit.
