Customer Update - 10 May 2021

KAL have been really pleased to welcome our customers back over the last few weeks and, following the recent Government announcement around the next phase of restriction easing, we wanted to provide customers with a further update.



Fitness Classes.


We are excited to announce that our fantastic exercise class programme will be able to return across our sites from Monday 17th May.


Guidance for exercise classes around social distancing and cleaning remains in place to help keep customers and staff safe. Please see our website for further information.


Bookings for group exercise sessions are now live and can be accessed via our app and online


Changing rooms


Our dry side changing rooms will also reopen from Monday 17th May.


Capacity for changing room areas will be limited, so please continue to come activity ready wherever possible.  


Social distancing must be maintained at all times within our changing room areas.  Again, please refer to our website for our full guidance.


Splash Park


We are also delighted to announce that the Splash Park at Huddersfield Leisure Centre will reopen on the 17th May.


There will be some changes to session times and facilities available. Please see our Splash Park Terms and Conditions for full details.


Splash Park bookings will be available via the Yeah! Days Out website from 12 noon on Wednesday12th May.


Facilities / activities yet to re-open


We are aware that some customers are disappointed that we have been unable to open all our centres/products due to a variety of reasons, including COVID-19 restrictions and associated Government and leisure industry guidance.  We would therefore like to provide an update on some key areas;


Due to the size and type of the facilities, social distancing and capacity g uidelines, there are additional challenges in reopening Batley Baths and Recreations Centre and Deighton Sports Arena.  KAL are committed to reopening these facilities in a safe and effective manner, however, in line with the Government’s road map on reducing restrictions, these facilities will NOT open before 21st June.  


KAL would like to thank customers for their continued patience in this regard and will provide further updates regarding the reopening of these centres as soon as we are able to.


Spa/ Sauna facilities - Current guidance in relation to capacity restrictions and social distancing also makes it not currently viable to reopen the spa / sauna facilities within our centres to allow the products to operate effectively.  These facilities will, therefore, also remain closed until 21st June at the earliest.


Klub Fitness / Teen Gym - Current guidance in relation to capacity restrictions and social distancing also makes it difficult to re-start this membership option. KAL will update all customers once we are able to re-start these sessions and associated memberships, but, again, we anticipate it to be no earlier than 21st June.


Finally, some of our family attractions products (Dare 2 Air, TAG X, Stompers Play Gym and The Reef Zone) will also remain closed until 21st June at the earliest.  Upon reopening these products will be available for individual or family ticket usage only.  Parties and Group bookings will be re-introduced post opening and we are unable to take advance booking for parties until further notice. Please check our website for updates.


KAL would like to once again thank all our customers for your patience and support and look forward to welcoming even more of you back over the coming weeks.


Stay Healthy, Stay Safe.
