As of midnight on Friday 20th March the Government have instructed gyms and leisure centres to close.

As you are aware it had been Impulse Leisure’s intention to keep its facilities open as we know how important exercise is to so many of you and we didn’t want to act too soon and remove a vital service before it was necessary.  Sadly this is now impossible.

As such Impulse Leisure will be closing all of its leisure centres including the Civic Hall & Golf Course in Essex  from the close of business tonight.

We know this decision will not please everyone, but we all have our part to play in stopping this terrible pandemic and we need to do our bit. We’ll keep in touch and let you know as soon as we are able to get our centres up and running again.

No customers will lose money while our centres are closed – all direct debit memberships will be frozen with immediate effect, and anyone who has paid an annual fee will have their membership extended.
