The swimming pool at Clickimin Leisure Complex. If Shetland Recreational Trust was snared by the overhauled business rates scheme, it could lose out to the tune of £750,000 a year.The Clickimin Leisure centre, including the swimming pool, will re-open on 14 September.

SHETLAND’s seven leisure centres including the pool in Scalloway are set to re-open for business again next Monday (14 September).

However, the Clickimin’s health suite and the swimming pool in Sandwick will stay closed to the time being.

Shetland Recreational Trust said that apart from these two exceptions it anticipated having swimming pools, gyms, studio classes, games halls, squash courts, the climbing wall and bowls hall all available from 14 September.

All activities must be pre-booked and pre-paid. A booking system will go live on the trust’s website from 12 noon on Thursday, or by phoning the Clickimin centre once staff have returned on 14 September.

There will be cleaning stations for sanitising hands before entering the centres and also while attending activities. Social distancing rules will have to be observed.

Writing on its website, the trust said: “We’ve reviewed all our practises and procedures to take into account the risk from Covid-19 and this means things will look a little different from the last time you used our facilities.

“What we do promise is that we’re keen to deliver a diverse range of activities to allow you to access your fitness needs.”
