With the Government announcing the North East is to enter Tier 4 restrictions from Thursday 31 December in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, all GO Gateshead leisure centres will now not reopen on Saturday 2 January following the festive period and will remain closed until further notice.

All memberships will remain suspended to ensure no payments are collected during the closure. If you have recently reactivated your membership, you don't need to do anything, we will reapply a suspension to your payments.

Please do not cancel your Direct Debit as this may affect future access.

Any bookings you may have had from Saturday 2 January will be cancelled.  

We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment this action may cause. We will continue to monitor Government guidance and Gateshead Council's critical business needs, with a view to reopening leisure facilities as soon as is practical.

If you have any queries regarding the content of this statement please email go@gateshead.gov.uk, however please be mindful we may not be able to respond immediately.
