CF11 Fitness, the council-operated leisure centre at Channel View, will reopen from Monday, August 10th

Measures have been put in place at the facility to enable appropriate social distancing and ensure customer and staff safety.

Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure, Cllr Peter Bradbury said: “The health and wellbeing of residents is really important, maybe now more than ever, so it’s great news that with new Covid-19 safety measures in place, the centre is now ready to welcome people back.”

The re-opening of this facility follows the announcement that social enterprise GLL, who operate the city’s Better Cardiff leisure centres on behalf of Cardiff Council, will re-open their facilities on a phased basis from Tuesday 11thAugust.

The first phase will see gyms, studio space and work out areas at Eastern Leisure Centre, Fairwater Leisure Centre, Llanishen Leisure Centre, Maindy Centre, Western Leisure Centre and Star Centre re-open.

Maindy, Star and Fairwater Centres will also open their pools for lane swimming and adult and child sessions.

People wishing to use Better Cardiff facilities will need to pre-book a time slot via the Better UK app or via the  Better Cardiff website.

Members of Better Cardiff centres that aren’t re-opening in the initial phase will be able to use alternative facilities at no additional cost. They will also be given the option to continue to freeze their memberships.

Canton Community Hall remains closed at this point, pending the outcome of a full Health and Safety assessment, to ensure it can be used in a way that meets social distancing requirements.

To support the school holiday offer for at risk children, Cardiff’s Children’s Play Services team will be operating from schools during the summer.
