Football’s coming home, to the hub

It’s the start of the countdown to the return of football. Yes, from March 29th we’re all set to see football safely return to our hubs. We can’t wait to get back in, to see you all, as you get your boots on, and step back on to the pitch.

All government guidance will be followed, and we’ll be implementing covid-safe measures similar to those you experienced prior to Lockdown 3.

Play safe, play on

Let’s kick off the return to football, safely:

  • Players and spectators have to pre-register to access the buildings and pitches.
  • You scan in with a unique QR code and check-in using NHS track and trace, before entering.
  • There’s a one-way system to access the pitches and social distance markers are displayed.
  • We have hand sanitiser and cleaning stations at the ready.
  • There are regular reminders to wash hands, clean equipment and keep distance.
  • The hub is frequently cleaned with regular cleaning concentrated on high use areas.

Our changing rooms remain closed, but the toilets are open and refreshments are available to take away.

We’re on the ball when it comes to your health and safety, and will be adjusting measures as guided by Public Health England. Please help us by keeping an eye on our social media channels, for the specific measures we’ll be introducing at each hub. You can be confident in Leisure United’s capability to safely manage access and capacities, maintain distance, and provide the highest standards of cleanliness, throughout our centres.

Get back to health

There’s no denying that these last few months have been hard on both our physical and mental wellbeing. There’s no better time to get your kit on, get back to the hub, get the adrenaline pumping, meet friends (at a distance) and the feel-good-factor flowing back.

Getting back to the game -whether for fun, or competitively – has many health benefits. It will improve your aerobic performance, strengthen muscles and bones, improve your cardiovascular health, increase stamina and endurance, improve co-ordination, reduce body fat and help reduce the risk of chronic illness such as heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes.  Plus it’s a known fact that participation in regular sports improves symptoms of depression, lowers stress and anxiety, and increases self-esteem.

There’s so much to gain from getting back in the game! We can’t wait to welcome you to back the home of football, fitness and friendship. Get in!
