Update: 27 November 2020

The Government has announced that the national lockdown is due to end 12.01am on Wednesday, 2 November.  We are really happy to confirm that the Dolphin Centre will reopen at 6.30am and Eastbourne Sports Complex will reopen at 8.30am on the 2nd.

Darlington has been put into Tier 3 which means that most of our services will be available.  The activities and services that are not permitted to take place include:

  • Catering apart from a takeaway service that will be available from 16 Horsemarket
  • Indoor Dry and Wet Classes
  • Indoor group activities and sports

Organised activities for elite athletes, under-18s and disabled people can continue and classes and organised adult sport can take place outdoors, but people are asked to avoid higher-risk contact activity.

We are still waiting for some further clarification around grass roots football at Eastbourne Sports Complex and will share this once we have it.  For information and bookings at Eastbourne please contact the complex direct 01325 405400

Customers can now book online for Dolphin Centre activities, we are really looking forward to welcoming everyone back. PLEASE NOTE our telephones will be manned from Monday 30th November 7.30am-7.30pm. 

Updates will be available via the website and social media or please email [email protected]
