All Causeway Coast and Glens Leisure Centres will close from tomorrow.

This includes Coleraine Leisure Centre, Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre, Roe Valley Leisure Centre, Dungiven Sports Centre, Sheskburn Recreation Centre and the Jim Watt Centre in Garvagh.

Staff will continue to work in the facilities for the coming days until a further update is given by Council.

In a statement to Causeway Coast Community Councillor Darryl Wilson said;

“Considering the rapidly changing situation regarding the spread of Covid 19, the immediate closure of all leisure centres across the Borough will come into effect from tomorrow 18th March.

Our fantastic leisure facilities provide an invaluable service to all within our community.

Our leisure centres are usually busy 7 days per week and are used by a broad spectrum of local people from infants/school children, to senior citizens.

Considering a large number of vulnerable people who use our leisure centres, including the elderly, GP referrals, people with heart conditions, people with underlying health conditions , cancer patients etc I feel that at this point the closure of our centres is the most sensible option to help protect those who are most at risk.”

Council is set to chair an emergency meeting tomorrow evening to discuss and agree further measures on how council operates.
