From September this year, we will be launching two brand new postnatal classes!

All of these sessions are for postnatal women with children aged 0-12 months. You must have been signed off by your doctor (around 6-12 weeks depending on type of delivery) before starting any postnatal fitness programme.

Parent and Baby Balance

Our new parent and baby balance classes combine yoga, tai chi, and Pilates to help you build flexibility and strength while your little one lays by your side! This will take place every Tuesday from 11am-11:45am.

Postnatal Pilates

Our postnatal Pilates classes are a great way to keep on top of your physical health whilst being safe and careful. In these classes you will learn effective ways to strengthen, stretch and tone your body. They will be held on Wednesdays between 10:30am-11:30am.

New Facilities

After several years of planning, we are absolutely delighted to announce that, thanks to Christ’s Hospital School, the construction of brand new facilities at Bluecoat Sports will begin in August 2023!

The new development will include four Padel courts, a 400m running track and a unique outdoor exercise adventure trail – the first of its kind in the UK.

Four Padel Courts

Padel is an easy-to-learn, fun and sociable form of tennis, and the fastest growing racket sport in the UK. It’s typically played in doubles, and is initially less about techniques and power than tennis. This allows players to start on more a level playing field! Scoring is the same as tennis, and the balls used are very similar however they have a little less pressure in them.

These four brand new courts will give everyone the chance to try new things, gain new skills in racket sports and hopefully build a community around Padel!

Running Track

Our 400m track will be a six-lane all-weather running track with ancillary athletic facilities, including an eight-lane 100m sprint section.

Outdoor Exercise Trail

We will be putting in a new unique and inclusive outdoor exercise adventure trail based on a pioneering and imaginative approach to exercise and physical wellbeing! There will be multiple activity stations which incorporate a range of running, jumping, balancing and climbing activities.
