All of our leisure centres are closed until further notice.

All memberships, including fitness, swimming and swimming lessons, will be frozen for the period of the closure and direct debit payments will be automatically adjusted. If you have paid up front for any membership, the period of the closure will be added to the end of your contract.

While we are closed, we hope you can remain physically active  - see our Keep active in your home information and look out for links on our social media, @DurhamThriveActive, providing information on how you can keep moving and stay healthy.

Follow us on Facebook or Twitter for our service updates, including information about re-opening.
