Continuation of COVID-19 restrictions - Sport and Leisure facilities update

With Orkney continuing to be in Level Three of the Scottish Governments COVID-19 restrictions until at least the 18 January, we want to update our customers and staff on what impacts this will have on Sport and Leisure activities and facilities from the 18 January until the 1 February 2021.

After a careful review of Scottish Government, sportscotland and Governing Bodies of Sport guidance, as well as current facility usage figures the following facilities and activities will be affected:

KGS Sport Centre:

  • Facility opening hours will be reduced to 25 hrs per week as per the new timetable published.
  • Indoor group exercise classes remain cancelled however we have recently launched our Online Exercise Programme which started from 11 January scheduled until 31 January which you can still request to join by emailing leisure.culture@orkney.gov.uk.
  • Group bookings for organised outdoor contact sport, competition, events and physical activity for adults (18+ years) will be contacted and cancelled until 31 January.
