Visiting Recreation and Sport Centres during Alert Level 2

Our centres remain open under COVID Alert Level 2, with steps in place to ensure people can maintain physical distancing and that we have the ability to contact trace. Please stay at home if you or anyone in your house is unwell. At this stage we won’t be accepting cash or giving change. All transactions will be via EFTPOS.

We encourage you to download the NZ COVID Tracer app.

You can book in for your group fitness class, including Spin, AquaFit and Tumbletimes. 

We will continue to update information as we confirm further details about operating at Alert Level 2.
