According to government guidelines, indoor adult group sports and classes, softplay centres and play barns are all to remain closed until May 17.

Despite this, and the fact all other Ninja Warrior branches across the UK are remaining closed ‘until further notice’ according to their websites, the Eastbourne branch, which can be found in the Beacon Shopping Centre, opened on April 12.

A spokesperson for the Beacon said, “Ninja Warrior UK Eastbourne will reopen on April 12 following local authority inspection and approval, and permission to open. All Covid protocols remain in place, such as restricted capacity, no spectators, social distancing and time between and after sessions for extensive cleaning.”
