After the latest restrictions and safety measures announced by the state and federal government on Sunday 22 March, and keeping the health and safety of both staff and patrons in mind, Five Dock Leisure Centre will be closing from midday Monday 23 March 2020 until further notice.
We understand these new restrictions and the closure of the leisure centre will pull many members out of their normal routines. However, it is important for everyone during these times to do our bit, by following good hygiene, social distancing and self isolation measures to help slow and stop the spread of this virus. The quicker we adopt these measures, the quicker we can all get back to our normal routines.
We will continue to monitor and respond to the situation as it changes, notifying members of any important changes to our service as they occur.
What does this mean for members?
During these challenging times, we want to do the right thing for our members. We will not be charging any of our members for as long as the leisure centre is closed. All memberships have effectively been placed on an indefinite freeze for the duration the centre is closed.
For direct debit memberships, we understand you have been billed in advance and we will credit you for any days the centre was closed during your billing period. This credit will automatically be applied to your first debit once the centre is open.
For upfront memberships, your expiry date will be extended equivalent to the duration of the closure. The same will also apply for members who hold a 10 or 20 visit pass to the Health Club, Teen Gym, Adult Gym and casual stadium.
More information on our opening dates will be advised once circumstances change.
Stay healthy and safe everyone! We hope to see everyone soon.
Where can you find the correct information?
In the coming weeks and months, as the situation continues to develop, we advise all members to visit the Australian Department of Health, NSW Health, NSW Office of Sport and Gymnastics NSW website for daily updates and information.
In particular, the FAQ section of the website has answers to common questions that members may want guidance on – such as work, travel and school arrangements and questions regarding home isolation.
