COVID-19 Lockdown: An update from Medway Sport


An update from us…

In line with government guidelines for the new national lockdown, Medway Council’s sports centres are now closed.

Unless further measures are announced, we will re-open Medway Park, Strood and Hoo Sports Centres when lockdown ends in line with the latest government guidelines, continuing to adhere to the stringent safety measures we have in place to keep customers and staff safe.

Splashes in Rainham will remain closed while it undergoes a £5 million refurbishment programme.

What this means…

Gym memberships

All memberships will be frozen automatically during the lockdown period. Existing credit will be carried forward to the next scheduled monthly direct debit date after we re-open.

All annual memberships and admission passes will automatically have the end dates extended by the length of the closure period.

No refunds will be made for memberships. If members decide to cancel their direct debit, they can re-start at the current prices when we re-open. All membership details and prices can be found here

Swimming lessons

The current swimming lesson programme has run for seven of the planned 13-week term.

Unless the guidance changes and closure measures are extended, we plan to resume lessons on Thursday, 3 December until Sunday, 20 December. The outstanding weeks of the term will then be completed through January.

The next term of swimming lessons would then begin in February 2021, with existing customers getting priority for re-enrolment.

We will credit any pre-paid sessions until next term.

Block bookings

Clubs, partner organisations and regular block bookings will all be cancelled. Any pre-paid sessions will be credited to customer accounts.

In line with government advice, professional athletes can request access to our training facilities during lockdown. Please email medwaysport@medway.go.uk
