Online Booking System 

To keep wtih government guidelines; we have limited the number of people who can access the centre at one time. All activities will need to be booked prior to arriving at the centre. Booking slots will be kept to 1 hour in order to keep the number of members in the gym, pool, or class at any given time restricted and allow for extra cleaning in between slots.

We have introduced a new online booking system for gym, swim and classes. We would advise all members to register for online booking as this will make the booking process quicker and easier.
