Hounslow leisure centres remain closed as the council continues to work on coronavirus safety measures at the sites.
It’s not yet known when the borough’s centres such as Heston Pool and Fitness, Osterley Sports and Athletic Centre and Hanworth Air Park Leisure Centre and Library, which are run by Fusion Leisure, will reopen to residents.
Following the government’s announcement that swimming pools, leisure centres and indoor gyms could reopen from 25 July, the council said it was planning a “phased return” and would not reopen from that date.
In an update on Wednesday, Hounslow’s leisure services boss Samia Chaudhary said: “Our priority is protecting residents, staff and volunteers from coronavirus and this means we will only reopen our leisure centres and swimming pools when we are absolutely certain it is safe to do so.
“We know this is frustrating for some but as we’re seeing in parts of the country and across Europe, we cannot be complacent. Coronavirus is still a threat, lives are still at stake and we won’t be taking unnecessary risks."
Fusion is expected to write to all members and give further updates when they are available.
Responding to the government announcement last month, a Fusion spokesperson said: “We have been analysing the safety and financial challenges ahead.
“We know your leisure facilities are really important for your health and well-being and we want them open again as soon as possible, so we hope that you will bear with us during this time. We are working with London Borough of Hounslow to look at the options for a phased return of leisure centre provision.”
