All Trafford Leisure Centres to shut from tonight (Covid19)

Trafford Council and Trafford Leisure is announcing today that all its leisure centres and outdoor facilities will be temporarily closed with immediate effect, from 9pm 20th March 2020.

The health of residents is paramount and our number one priority. We have to limit social contact to safeguard the NHS and prevent more people from catching the virus.

Cllr Jane Slater, Trafford Council’s Executive Member for Health, Wellbeing and Equalities

Over the coming days and weeks Trafford Leisure and Trafford Council will explore local opportunities to provide the community with outdoor physical activities in large open spaces, allowing the community to keep well and active whilst maintaining social distancing.

Advice from NHS England states that staying active and maintaining physical activity is an important part of remaining healthy. Trafford Leisure will be providing advice and guidance for indoor exercises on its website and social platforms and will also provide its members with complimentary access to Les Mills On Demand, so they can continue their exercise regime at home.
