Customer Notice

Following the announcement by the Government on Wednesday 9th September to impose tighter restrictions on social gatherings in England from Monday 14th September, we can confirm that these will not apply to the operation of our leisure facilities at Wymondham, Long Stratton, Diss, Framingham Earl and Kett’s Park and our customers can continue to use all of them as they do at the moment. This is because we have stringent plans in place to reduce the risk if Covid-19 and because our facilities are classed as Covid-secure given the measures we have introduced, . The importance of sport and physical activity to people’s physical health and mental wellbeing has also been recognised by the Government. We have had our Covid-19 operating procedures independently assessed by health and safety specialists who praised the steps that we have taken to keep our customers and staff safe.

Sport England’s Covid-19 guidance can be found here and we have also produced a number of videos that demonstrate the measures that we have introduced at our centres, which can be found on South Norfolk Leisure’s YouTube channel here.

We remain committed to ensuring that you are able to stay active with confidence with us, and we look forward to welcoming our customers back into our centres;

we are ready when you are.

We will not be taking any Direct Debit payments for fitness subscriptions unless you have instructed us to restart your membership. Requests for restart should be made to

In partnership with Framingham Earl High School and the Sapientia Education Trust sports facilities are available to hire and classes to attend.

At South Norfolk Council the safety of our customers and staff is extremely important to us and as you would have expected we have had to make some changes to our Centres so you can use them in a safe way. The following measures have been taken

  • A queuing system will be put in place outside of the entrance
  • Markers have been laid out on the floor so people adhere to being a safe distance from others
  • A one-way system will be in operation at the building so there will be different entrance and exit points
  • Screens have been put up at the reception area

What areas of the facility will be accessible?

Only badminton and tennis courts and a limited class programme will be open initially

There will be no access to the changing rooms

All visits will need to be pre booked to allow us to ensure safe social distancing

Why can’t I use the changing rooms?

Due to limited space in the changing room areas and the lack of airflow from windows we are unable to allow access to these rooms.

There will be a limit to the amount of people and time spent in the building each day


We are now running outdoor classes (following social distancing rules with a maximum of five attendees and an instructor) at Kett's Park in Wymondham and the grounds of South Norfolk House at Long Stratton. Click here to find out more.
