In line with the latest instructions from the UK Government, Greenwich Leisure Ltd (GLL), the not for profit enterprise running the  eight Better Leisure Centres on behalf of Cardiff City Council, will close its venues at the end of Friday 20th March 2020 until further notice.

Rhys Jones, Better Cardiff Manager, said:

“The health and well-being of both our staff and valued customers is paramount. We have a social responsibility to everyone in the local community to take action to protect ourselves and others, therefore we are closing all our centres until further notice.  This follows instruction from the UK Government.

“We will be helping our customers during this difficult time by automatically applying a payment freeze for all of them.  A payment freeze means that they will retain their membership or lesson/course, but will not have to pay during the period that the centre is closed. All of our customers will receive email notification of this.

“We are working closely with local public health authorities and receiving all official updates from the Government and hope to be welcoming people back through our doors as soon as it is considered safe to do so. Further updates will be made on http://www.better.org/coronavirus”
