Following the government's announcement this evening, Saturday 31 October, we shall be sending out communications to all members via email on Monday 2nd November. This will detail information on memberships, swimming lessons and other activities. We appreciate your support and patience during this ongoing pandemic. Thank you.


Our staff have been busy preparing and making important changes as your safety is our highest priority. Some of the changes will be the one-way system around our facility, clearly labelled work out stations, sanitization stations, sanitizer and wipes to wipe down the equipment, limited capacity in some classes to maintain social distancing and increased cleaning hours throughout the centre. Full details can be found here.

Yes all centres have been deep cleaned and are continually cleaned throughout the day. 

Yes, we request that all member use the sanitizer sprays and wipes available in the gym to wipe down the machines and equipment they have used.

No. We kindly ask you not to bring a sweat towel to the gym or classes to help limit any risk of the virus spreading and that all members only use the wipes and sanitizer available in the gym and class studios.

Yes, if you have your own exercise mat then please bring it.  If not, we do still have mats available and these will be sanitized before and after each class.

 Yes. Hand sanitizer is available at Reception and at regular points throughout the buildings.

As Thursday 24th September, we strongly recommend that all members and visitors to wear face coverings in all circulation areas of our buildings. This includes reception, corridors, spectator areas and toilets. This does not include the gym, sports halls, studios, swimming pools or outdoor spaces, though you may still choose to wear one in these areas if they wish.

We will also be following the government guidance and anyone over the age of 11 years must wear a face mask indoors unless participating in sporting activities

No. Please do not wear gloves whilst training. Gloves can harbor a high viral load, with easier transfer to multiple services. Washing your hands with soap and water and using hand sanitizer before, during and after training is far more effective.
