We are pleased to confirm that Derby Active Leisure facilities will re-open on Sat 25 July, including Derby Arena, Springwood Leisure Centre and Queen’s Leisure CentreMoorways Stadium has already opened for outdoor track and field activities. 

The team at Derby Active are currently putting the finishing touches in place ready to re-open. 

It will be a phased re-opening, with dates yet to be confirmed for certain sports like gymnastics coaching, and indoor track cycling at Derby Arena.

Wed 24 Jun 

The last few weeks we have been really busy preparing the centres ready to provide safe facilities in-line with government and sporting guidelines. The current advice following yesterdays update from the government is that leisure centres will remain closed, but once we have the date to open, we will be ready to welcome you back.

When you return things will be slightly different to how they were before we closed in March, as we implement the government guidelines. We are working hard to plan how we can reopen safely and provide you, our valued customers, with the reassurance we know you need to come back.

Everything we are planning, changing and adapting, is with YOU and your safety at the centre as the highest priority. We will continue to provide high quality facilities and activities that you will enjoy and feel safe.

Once we have finalised all the details, we will be letting you know here on our website and for Derby Active registered members by email and text.

So hopefully it won't be too long until we welcome you back!

Don’t forget we have lots of information on keeping you active on our Derby Active at Home page.
