Coronavirus Update

News & Events

As you may have heard, the government has given us the green light to open our Indoor facilities. Therefore, from Saturday, 25th July, the following facilities and activities within BCS will be opened for members to use:

  • Gym
  • Group Exercise Classes
  • Swimming – lane swimming only
  • Racket Sports

Review our frequently asked questions here.

Procedures will be in place to ensure everyone stays safe including a minimum of 2 square metre space around each machine, one-way system and cleaning stations.

Members will need to book their gym and pool visit online in advance as we will need to adhere to strict limits on numbers of people in these areas at any given time.

Sessions will be for 60 minutes with a 30 minute gap in between in order to give staff the opportunity to clean each area thoroughly before the next session. Members will also be asked to do their part by wiping down pieces of equipment when they are finished using them.

There will be separate entrance and exit doors with clear markings on the floor to indicate walking directions and social distancing guidelines.

Members will need to attend their activity ready to take part as the changing rooms will only be available for people to change out of a wet costume after their swim.

Areas or activities not planned to re-open due to social distancing protocols are as follows:

  • Changing Rooms (other than for a quick change out of a wet costume)
  • Crèche
  • Sauna
  • Coaching courses
  • Coaching sessions
  • Children’s holiday club
  • Children’s birthday parties

Members can book 8 days in advance. Pay As You Go can book 4 days in advance. You can review our booking policy here.

If you have not pre-booked a space, please do not come to the club.

You are welcome to read our Covid-19 Risk Assessment on request in person or via email
We thank you for your patience and continued support and we look forward to welcoming you back.
