Everyone Active and Sunderland City Council are working on plans to reopen more facilities and resume activities at the Raich Carter Sports Centre.

Currently, the gym is open for members of the public to use and group exercise classes are running at the centre.

The leisure group have hinted that once coronavirus restrictions ease further, more activities and facilities at the Raich Carter will resume however an exact date is yet to be provided.

Everyone Active’s contract manager, Ian Bradgate, said: “Everyone Active and Sunderland City Council are working together on a timeline for the opening of facilities and activities at Raich Carter Sports Centre and around the contract.

“Covid restrictions mean resources and space at Raich Carter are limited but Everyone Active will look to reintroduce further activities – including children’s activities – subject to restrictions being eased by government.”

Social distancing measures, allotted time slots and regular cleaning remain in place at the city’s other Everyone Active centres.
