K2 Crawley and The Bewbush Centre celebrate a successful reopening



Leisure centres across Crawley are celebrating a successful reopening period after seeing many new and returning members through the doors.

K2 Crawley and The Bewbush Centre, which are both run by Everyone Active in partnership with Crawley Borough Council, reopened their doors on Saturday 25 July after four months of closure due to the UK wide lockdown. The reopening measures, including one-way systems, enhanced cleaning regimes and structured sessions have been received with great positivity from members.

Numbers through the doors show that members were keen to get active again, with over 16,200 gym visits since the reopening. The team has also seen upwards of 350 new members joining across all venues.  

Attendance in group exercise classes across the centres has also been amongst the highest in the region with over 4,000 visits from members. In addition, since the pools at K2 Crawley reopened on 1 August, 3,650 swimmers have booked in for lane swimming.

For members who wish to continue working out at home, Everyone Active is offering access to its extensive digital fitness package for £9.99 a month. The platform provides a number of home workouts from intense cardio to yoga. Members will also receive access to training plans to help them stay on track until they feel comfortable heading into the centres again.

Jon Hodgson, Contract Manager at Everyone Active, commented:

“The response we’ve received from our members has been overwhelmingly positive and we’re so pleased to see many new and returning members through our doors.

“It’s been a really challenging few months and we’ve worked tirelessly to still keep people active through a host of online workouts, whilst also preparing the centres for reopening. We’re extremely grateful for the local support, however, for those who are not comfortable visiting us just yet, our online packages are perfect for staying fit and healthy in the meantime.”

Charlie Harrison, Commercial Director at Furniture Village, comments:

“With much of the UK under lockdown, I’m delighted we’ve been able to open our new store in Crawley. County Oak is a fantastic shopping destination and the ideal choice for Furniture Village.

“It’s been a challenging year for everyone, but I am incredibly proud of the Furniture Village team which continues to offer industry-leading quality, choice and service. As well as Family Retailer of the Year, we’ve also been awarded National Bed Retailer of the Year so I’m particularly looking forward to welcoming customers to our new bed department.”

The store will see a team of 11 expert sales consultants offering valuable insights and advice to customers, all made possible thanks to enhanced Covid-19 safety measures.
