Update on leisure centres

Our sport and leisure centres are starting to reopen from 14 September. Get the latest information on our FAQs page.

Aylestone Leisure Centre


Aylestone Leisure Centre offers activities in our sports halls, together with our 3G football pitch, swimming pools and gym. Find us at 2 Knighton Lane East, Leicester, LE2 6LU.

Aylestone remains closed

As we continue with community testing and the refurbishment of our gym, Aylestone Leisure Centre will remain closed until further notice. However, we are still working hard towards getting the centre ready for when we reopen.

As an Active Leicester member, you can still get access to any of our other leisure centres in the city. Find a leisure centre.

COVID-19 information

Of course, in order to maintain the safety of our customers and staff, we need to undertake certain measures, meaning that your experience at our centres might be a little bit different. Here are some of the things we are introducing to keep you safe:

  • Booking and payment in advance are essential
  • Screens at reception desks and helpful information signage throughout our centres
  • Relocation of activities to provide additional space for social distancing
  • Gym equipment spaced out for social distancing
  • Increased cleaning and hygiene measures across leisure centres

Please book any sessions or classes in advance, to avoid disappointment. In order to book, you will need to be an Active Leicester member. We also advise that members pay in advance to save any unnecessary contact on arrival. When you come to our centres, please arrive in appropriate clothing (‘beach-ready’ if you are coming to swim) as our changing rooms may be unavailable.

On top of those mentioned above, at Aylestone we have implemented the following additional measures:

  • We have temporarily formed a socially distanced gym in the downstairs ancillary hall and studio, while we complete our exciting gym refurbishment
  • Group exercise classes will take place in the bar area and main hall
