Following the recent announcement from the NI Executive allowing the reopening of swimming pools, we are excited to reopen our swimming pools at Antrim Forum, Sixmile Leisure Centre and the Valley Leisure Centre on Friday 7 August. To ensure the safety of users, a new procedure will be in place whereby access to pools will be for 45 minute sessions which must be booked prior to attending the centre. At this stage there will be lane swimming and some provision of open swim sessions allowing you to attend with the family.

Racquet sports will also be available from 7 August including pickle ball, badminton, table tennis and squash. Again, these will also need to be booked in advance. 
 
For all of the football fanatics in the Borough, MORE Soccer at the Valley Leisure Centre with 2 x 5 aside and 1 x 7 aside outdoor pitches will also be available from that date.
