Exercise Activity

Overview

We have been working hard on plans to reopen our leisure centres. We are pleased to announce that Reading Sport and Leisure (RSL) centres at Meadway Sports Centre, Palmer Park Sports Stadium and South Reading Leisure Centre, will reopen from Monday 3rd August.
It will be a phased reopening with the safety of the public and our staff as a top priority. We will be closely following the national guidance and governing body safety recommendations, including measures such as enhanced cleaning schedule at all centres and staff working in small ‘bubbles’ to reduce risk of transmission.

You will also see safety guidance signage and where appropriate, queuing and one-way systems.

Important: Exercise classes must be pre-booked, just go to the 'Book Now' button, or call the centre direct.

For further details see our Centre Re-opening Updates page.
