Derby Active’s leisure facilities are ready to welcome customers back to Derby ArenaSpringwood Leisure CentreQueen’s Leisure Centre and Moorways Stadium.

Not all activities will be available, as we follow the Government guidance for Tier 3, which Derby will be in from this date. The safety of our customers and staff remains our priority, and measures that were in place before our temporary closure will continue.

Under Tier 3, group exercise classes and indoor track cycling cannot take place, which is why we will continue to provide our online Derby Active at Home programme so you can get the benefits of exercise in the comfort of your own living room. Find out what we have on offer at
