New online system to help beat the queue at leisure centres
28 March 2022
A new online system that will make it quicker and more convenient to book swimming sessions is being introduced at Council leisure centres.
The new booking system is now fully active and can be used to book both public sessions and lane swimming. Those who book can be fast tracked in line to avoid queuing at leisure centres. Regular users are advised to download the Council leisure app for convenient access to information and booking.
Director of Health and Community with Derry City and Strabane District Council, Karen McFarland, said: "We are introducing the new online system as part of our ongoing work to improve leisure services. By booking in advance users can avoid queues as this will reduce waiting time for everyone.
"Council is currently undertaking a review of all its leisure services, and we have just launched a survey as part of our wider Physical Activity, Wellbeing & Sport Strategy 2022-2027. The strategy will set out the way forwards for the future delivery of all physical activity, wellbeing and sport services for both Council and local organisations, right across Derry and Strabane.
"I would really encourage both users and non-users to complete the online survey to let us know about the activities and services they would expect to find at our centres. We hope that by introducing better approaches, including the new online booking system, that we can enhance the customer experience for all our users."
