Coming out of Lockdown

Update - Level 4 Restrictions

Following recent Scottish Government announcements South Lanarkshire will be in Level 4 restrictions from 6:00pm on Friday 20 November for three weeks. This means temporarily re-closing many of the services, listed below, which had restarted.

Please download the Scottish Government Strategic Framework Implications for SLLC Moving to Protection Level 4 pdf to see which of these services will be closed.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers again for their continued support and hope to see you back on 12 December.

Memberships information

If you are a member with us who has a direct debit on 1 of the month your membership will be paused for the duration and there will be no payment taken on 1 December. Your direct debit will commence again on 1 January 2021. This applies to Fitness and Swim members.

If you are a member with us who has a direct debit on 15 of the month your membership will be paused for the duration and there will be no payment taken on 15 December. Your direct debit will commence again on 15 January 2021. This applies to Fitness and Swim members.

If you are an Activage member with us we will extend your membership for a further three weeks to compensate for our closure.

If you are currently participating in our outdoor programme we have kept your membership running so you can continue to attend these classes but if you would rather we paused it for you then please email our memberships department.

If you have a child in our swimming lesson programme we will pause your child’s swimming lesson membership for this duration and there will be no payment taken on 1 December. Your direct debit will commence again on 1 January 2021. Some swimming lessons will go ahead on Friday but unfortunately if your child attends classes at 5:40pm, 5:50pm, 6:00pm and 6:10pm these will not run, to comply with the restrictions.

Services Restart

We are working to ensure all SLLC facilities are Covid-compliant and services are resumed in a staged process, depending on guidance and restrictions set by the Scottish Government. The priority, as always, is to keep staff and customers safe and well. We will update this information as our plans progress.

We still are advised to stay local as much as possible when accessing services. Per Scottish Government guidance we still must practise safe physical distancing and avoid spaces and situations which are too crowded to maintain distancing. Please remember to wash / disinfect hands before and after visiting one of our facilities and use face coverings in enclosed spaces.

We would ask customers to read and follow applicable guidelines for each service to help to prevent virus transmission.

Online classes

Since initial lockdown in March 2020 we have been providing a timetable of online activities via our facebook pages to help South Lanarkshire residents keep active and healthy. In addition we have been providing discounted access to Les Mills on Demand exercise classes.

Outdoor classes

If you can brave the weather you can join us in one of our outdoor classes. View our programme on the online timetable, and if you see something you'd like to try you can book online.

Golf

Our golf courses are open: BiggarHollandbushLanglandsTorrance House (all 18 holes), and the 9 hole golf courses at Larkhall and Strathclyde Park.

During Covid-19 restrictions there are some alterations to how we operate which will affect golfers, staff and golf clubs. It is really important that golfers wishing to join or play at our courses read through the guidance document we have produced. It follows government rules and governing body recommendations. Everything is included in the guidance from purchasing a season ticket, booking a tee time, how we operate at the starters offices, and on course rules and regulations. The guidance will change in line with government and governing body easing of restrictions.

Golfers also must read and follow the Golf during Covid procedure for golfers.

Please check the updated price list.

There are no turn up and play options available whilst social restrictions are in place.

Golfers can pre-book tee times via online booking or by calling the starters office in advance.  Please visit our memberships website to renew or purchase your season ticket for the first time. We encourage you to use online facilities to book a round or take out membership as it is quicker and easier for you. It also greatly assists in us maintaining social distancing at the starters offices.
