Gateshead Council has confirmed that it has no immediate plans to reopen its leisure centres, gyms and swimming pools. In Gateshead, our primary concern remains the health and wellbeing of our residents during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. With that in mind, all GO Gateshead leisure centres have been closed since March to help control the further spread of the virus and this will continue to be the case for the time being.

While we understand this will come as a disappointment to our valued customers, preventing and controlling the spread of the virus to protect lives must be the main consideration.

Councillor Martin Gannon, Leader of Gateshead Council, said:

“While coronavirus infection rates in Gateshead are declining, we remain committed to our pledge to protect the most vulnerable people in our communities. We have therefore made the decision to maintain the closure of our leisure centres for the time being while we continue to monitor the local rate of infection."

Any changes to this stance, including a date for reopening will be communicated directly to GO Gateshead members and residents through broader Gateshead Council communications channels, including social media. All Direct Debit payments will remain suspended until leisure centres reopen.
