Heights Leisure Centre


The Heights reception


Further to the recent problems experienced with the showers it is necessary to partially close The Heights to allow the necessary remedial works to be carried out.  This will be between Monday 10 and Friday 14 November.

The Tone Zone, Studio 1 and 2, Spin studio and the squash courts will remain open.

All other areas will be closed to the public to allow contractors to work safely.  Although no changing rooms or toilets will be available within the building, we will have two Portaloos situated outside The Heights.

During the partial closure contractors will be on site working on pipework, water tanks, taps and showers – this may result in some disruption and the use of an alternative entrance and exit to the site.

Once this work has been completed we will then need to wait for water test results and until these are received, the  “filters” that are currently in place on all showers will remain for a period after the Centre re-opens.

We apologise for the disruption this situation has caused and thank you for your patience throughout this period.

If you wish to discuss any of the above please contact a member of the Heights management team.
