Helping you to live your best life

We are open!

Since reopening, we have continued to work hard to make our centres as safe and welcoming as possible, and we’re really pleased to see you back.

We have new changes in place, including timetables, centre opening times and safety measures, to help everyone enjoy their time with us safely.

Please read the important information below about our new opening times, timetables, booking procedures and safety measures.

Thank you and see you soon,
The Active Tameside Team

Our swimming lessons for Swim School stages 1-5 started back on Monday 14th September 2020. We introduced new procedures and safety measures, which vary from centre to centre – please carefully read the procedures for your centre, along with payment details and terms & conditions, here.

Unfortunately, the following lessons are not yet due to start back: Little Ducks, Swim School stages 6 and above, Swim Academy, disability lessons and Junior Lifeguard. We will continue to asses capacity, with a view to restarting these sessions as soon as its safe to do so. You can find a list of local aquatic clubs here.

Gymnastics

Gymnastics lessons for stages 1 – 8; mixed; badge groups; advanced and competition levels will be restarting from Monday 21st September at Active Ken Ward. We will resume collecting Direct Debit payments on 1st October 2020, giving the opportunity to try out a lesson for free before payments restart. If paying in blocks, any credits that are outstanding will be carried over and begin from 1st October.

Due to current government guidelines, we are unable to resume our Gym Tots, Tiny Tumblers and Little Tumblers gymnastics sessions, as well as lessons at Active Copley and Active Oxford Park, in phase three of our reopening plans. We will be continually assessing our centre capacities in line with government and British Gymnastics guidelines, with a view to restarting these sessions as soon as it is safe to do so.

Safety is our main priority and we can assure you that we will be following guidelines from British Gymnastics, as well as implementing strict safety procedures.
