About

 

Active Scilly is the Council of the Isles of Scilly sports, health and fitness service.  We offer Gym, Sports Hall and Swimming facilities.

 

 

Sports Hall

The Queen Elizabeth ll Community Sports Hall is available to book for a wide range of sports and activities, both to clubs and the general public.

The hall can accommodate 4 badminton courts and has court markings for football, basketball, badminton, tennis and more - we can provide nets and other equipment on request. There is also a large seating area and viewing gallery for spectators. We have modern changing facilities with showers and lockers.

 

Gym

Our gym is installed with state of the art Cybex equipment. This includes: treadmills, arc trainers, bikes, disabled user friendly upper body ergo meter, weights machines and free weights.

 

There are qualified instructors available in the gym at certain times who can offer advice on workout programmes and how to use the machines.  If you are new to using a gym you can have a free induction, to show you how to use the equipment safely and effectively.  If you are a regular gym user, feel free to use any of the available equipment at your own pace, there is no need to book.  However you are advised to book on to classes such as TRX, Step Cardio and spin to avoid disappointment.

 

There will sometimes be changes to our timetable, especially to the gym support hours, due to staffing, bank holidays and events. Be sure to check our Twitter and Facebook pages for any updates or give us a call.

 

Swimming Pool

Normandy Swimming Pool is open all year round to both residents and non-residents. It features a full program of open sessions and swimming lessons for both children and adults and sessions for Toddlers and babies.

 

Other activities include aqua aerobics and swimfit classes. We can cater for visiting schools wishing to hire out the pool, and also children's birthday parties!

 

Experienced swimming teachers and pool lifeguards are available at each session for all your needs.

Open Sessions:  Open sessions cater to all groups: there are sessions such as Children and Families, Relaxed Swims, Lane Swim, and Splash Tots, to give a range of comfortable swim times to a range of interests. 

Admissions Policy:

  • No child under the age of 8 is allowed in the pool without being supervised by a parent or carer, or responsible person over the age of 16.

  • We strongly recommend that all children under the age of 4 years who cannot swim should be supervised on a one-to-one basis.

  • Children over the age of 8 must change in the appropriate changing rooms.

  • Swimmers with disabilities: pool staff are not permitted to physically lift any disabled person into or out of the pool.
