Camden’s leisure centres are to reopen from July 25.
The town hall is working with its contractor GLL and, in line with government guidance, has announced the first phase of reopening for facilities across the borough will see gyms, lane swimming, and group exercise available.
Cllr Jonathan Simpson, Camden’s leisure chief, said: “We will be preparing thoroughly and taking all possible precautions to make our facilities as safe as possible for residents and staff.”

Cllr Simpson added: “Exercise is so important for our physical and mental health.”
To swim, use gyms or take part in classes online booking is strongly encouraged, but it is available on-site for those without internet access.
