Chesterfield Adventure Centre and COVID-19

As lockdown begins to ease the centre is preparing to welcome back our customers. However, it is important to understand that currently we are running on a limited staffing level. We would ask anyone wishing to visit the shop please ring first and make an appointment to prevent any disappointment in not being able to serve you. The centre can be contacted on 01246 245408 or


Please be advised that our confined water training is still unavailable until restrictions have been lifted by the Government. Swim England is involved in determining when it is safe to re-open pools alongside local councils in our case Chesterfield Borough Council (Queens Park Leisure Centre) Open water training should be available soon however, we know there are going to be restrictions in place and dive sites will most likely be operating a booking system to control their operations whilst maintaining Government guidelines.
