The government has confirmed its roadmap of easing lockdown restrictions is still on track, we are excited to have reopened our doors on Monday 12th April.

The team have been working hard during lockdown to deep clean the facility and as before, we will continue to be diligent in implementing all government guidelines in order to keep our members, guests, staff and pupils safe, including appropriate social distance measures as per the Government’s guidance, one-way systems and cleaning stations. We ask for your continued support during this time in adhering to these measures.

Pre-booking of gym and swim sessions

We ask that members continue to book their gym and pool visits online in advance.  Gym sessions must be booked but will be drop-in sessions so you can arrive and leave at anytime within the session time.  As before, we ask that you do your part and wipe down equipment after use.

Please check our timetables to see session times.

 

Changing Rooms

At the current time the changing rooms will only be available for swimmers to use. Showers will be available for your swim. We intend to open up the changing rooms to other members in the near future.

One way system

As before, there will be some elements of one-way systems as you move around the Club, but there are some amendments to these. Entry to and exit from the gym will be from the first floor, which will mean that the staircase in the gym will now be a 2-way. Clear markings remain on the floor to indicate walking directions and social distancing guidelines.

Face Coverings

Unless you are not required to do so, all members and their guests should wear a face covering when they are in the building up to the point that their activity or class begins. To clarify, the face covering should be worn in all common areas of the facility, including entering, exiting and while you are waiting for your session or class to begin. They do not need to be worn once you enter the gym, pool side, or when your activity or class begins.
