Due to the variety and diversity of Coral Leisure facilities across the country, each centre shall have a bespoke programme for re-opening. The site-specific details of these plans shall be communicated to you from your local Coral Leisure centre closer to the date of each phase in the government roadmap.
Across all Coral centres however there will be social distancing measures, hand sanitising stations, rigorous cleaning regimes and comprehensive training for all staff in place when we begin operations again.
In line with the government’s phased roadmap, Coral Leisure hopes to implement a phased reopening of it centres and a phased re-introduction of services.
