Sports Facility Reopening pricing policy

We will be operating a 'Pay As You Go' policy initially. The cost will be £2 per session for Adults and £1 for Juniors and Concession rate customers.

We are trying to be fair to all our customers as this reflects the reduced time limits we have had to bring in for each session.

Customers will be able to choose to reactivate their 'Slàinte Mhath' membership up until around the 20th of each month should that prove to be more financially beneficial for them. This would then become active again from 1st of the following month.
