As per the provincial guidelines announced and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and Omicron variant, the Peterborough Sport & Wellness Centre will be closed effective Wednesday, January 5, 2022.  This closure is expected to last for the next three weeks, and once a re-opening date is confirmed further communication will be provided. As a result, we will unfortunately be postponing the start date of our winter term classes.
