Leisure centres

Coronavirus update

Leisure centres will reopen to the public on Tuesday 14 July. Membership direct debits will restart from Thursday 16 July. Members can choose to continue to freeze their membership until swimming pools reopen. All members will receive a letter with information advising of this.

The gyms that will reopen are:

  • Brook
  • Grove
  • Lisnasharragh
  • Olympia
  • Falls
  • Better Gym Belfast 
  • Better Gym Connswater 
  • Andersonstown
  • Shankill

Restrictions are in place which include reduced capacity, booking slots and no changing areas available.

Smaller gyms at our other leisure sites will remain closed as it is not possible to ensure the necessary health and safety measures at this time. We will continue to update users on our website and social media channels.

Visit the Better website for more information.
