K2 Crawley to stay open ‘until the government advises otherwise’

Published

on

While the news has been a constant stream of closures some residents will find it comforting to know that K2 Crawley and the Bewbush Centre, both run by Everyone Active, are to remain open as long as possible.

But certain measures are being taken to minimise any spread. These include:

  • Reducing group exercise classes to 50% capacity to allow social distancing.
  • Classes to finish 10-15 minutes earlier to allow for thorough cleaning of equipment.
  • Staff to make regular health, safety and cleanliness checks.
  • Increase supply of anti-bacterial soap, hand and surface anti-bacterial spray and paper towels.

Stuart Mills, Area Contract Manager at Everyone Active, said:

“At present, our Everyone Active centres in Crawley remain open until the government advises otherwise.

“Certain changes are being implemented including reducing our group exercise classes to 50% capacity in line with Public Health England guidance regarding social distancing. Classes will also finish 10-15 minutes earlier than usual to allow for thorough cleaning of equipment between sessions.

“Colleagues are also carrying out regular health, safety and cleanliness checks and are ensuring all touch-point surfaces are cleaned regularly. We are also increasing our supply of anti-bacterial soap, hand and surface anti-bacterial spray, and paper towels available within our gyms and are asking all customers to wipe down any equipment they have used.

“We would also like to assure our members that it is safe to continue swimming. Advice from PWTAG (Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group) shows that the water and chlorine within the swimming pools will help to kill the virus.

“As per the latest advice from Public Health England, if members are showing signs or symptoms of coronavirus, we would ask that they do not attend the centre. However, remaining healthy and active is important now more than ever. With this in mind, we are still encouraging our members to keep to their usual routine but remain extra vigilant with their cleanliness and keep up to date with the latest government advice on coronavirus.

Ronnie O’Sullivan critical ‘again’ of K2 Crawley

Last year he described it as a ‘hellhole’ and this year he is still not impressed.

Speaking to reporters the snooker player who only just managed to get through the first round was highly critical of the towns sports venue.

O’Sullivan reportedly said:

“It hasn’t changed as far as I’m concerned.’

‘You’d have to do a lot to change this place, wouldn’t you? You’d have to do an overall refurb on this place, but I’m not surprised, it is what I expected it to be.

I’ve just gone from the match table to a squash court to a toilet, where the player’s office is, to outside the building, in the rain, to get round here to do interviews, so I’ll probably end up with a bit of pneumonia on top of the cold which I’ve already got.”

He even joked that:

“Every day in Crawley is a day lost in my life.”

But the player has received backlash from the towns leaders and residents with Crawley MP Henry Smith saying:

“I believe it is the second year he has done this, he would be better concentrating on his snooker than mouthing off cheap lines.”

One local resident from Tilgate summed up their feelings of the snooker player saying:

“Who is he?”

A spokesperson from the English Open said:

“After last year’s English Open in Crawley we gathered feedback from the players, fans and officials and the overall feedback was that it is an excellent venue.

Based on this feedback we have made some changes to the layout this time in order to improve the experience for the players, including a new quiet lounge for the players and an improved practice facility. We are happy to be working with the K2 venue building the English Open into a great event.

The atmosphere in the arena on the opening day on Monday was excellent and we look forward to more support from the people of Crawley throughout the week.”
