Swim & Fitness Class Booking

Currently, the booking system will remain in place for the swimming pool and all group exercise classes. For the comfort of all bathers, our maximum capacity for member swim sessions will remain the same until further notice. No pre-booking is required for the fitness suite.

 

Changing Rooms and Showers

Our shower cubicles and changing rooms remain open to all customers (including gym users). Hair driers and hand driers will also be available to use. Please be aware that the 2 metre social distancing policy will no longer be in effect, in line with the updated government guidelines, however we encourage members to use social distancing where possible.

 

Group Exercise Update
 
Cleaning stations remain in place in the dance studio, and we ask that all members continue to wipe down their equipment before and after use to help prevent the spread of COVID- 19. We always welcome feedback from members and guests to ensure that everyone feels comfortable while in the club.

 

Gym Towel Policy

We have reviewed our current gym towel policy and sports club members can now bring their own gym towel when visiting for a fitness class or gym session. Please can customers ensure all equipment is cleaned and sanitised following your workout using our sanitising spray and disposable hand towels. Thank you.

Additional Cleaning

Our additional routine cleaning schedule, hand sanitising zones, disinfectant sprays and disposable towels will remain in place around the Sports Club. We will continue to operate a regular deep cleaning schedule throughout the centre.

   We appreciate the support of our valued members and guests throughout the pandemic. We welcome feedback             regarding our existing and future COVID-Safe practices.

   Whilst we have reduced our COVID guidelines, we kindly request that all members and guests please respect the                 personal space of others when visiting the club.

 Thank you

What are you doing to protect customers and visitors?

 

Social distancing

Social distancing will no longer be mandatory within the Sports Club, however we would like to kindly request that all visitors respect the personal space of others whilst using our facilities. This is to ensure a comfortable environment is maintained for all users.

Hygiene and Sanitisation

As well as more regular routine cleaning and allocated disinfecting times by Sports Club staff, we have provided sanitising spray, disposable hand towels, hand sanitising gel and anti-bacterial hand soap in all locations around the club. Before you enter the Sports Club and as you use the facilities, we expect all customers to frequently maintain personal hygiene and hand sanitising.

Water Fountain - you must bring a refillable water bottle and not drink directly from the fountain.

The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) have confirmed that the risk of air conditioning spreading Coronavirus (COVID-19) is extremely low. We do not have an air conditioning system that recirculates air at the Sports Club, but instead our systems provide a fresh air supply from outside.

Fitness Suite

You no longer are required to pre-book your gym session, and you may arrive for a gym session whenever is convenient for you as we have removed the hourly gym programme.

You are also now permitted to bring a sweat towel, but we request that all visitors use the disinfectant spray and disposable hand towels provided by us to clean all equipment after use.

Fitness Classes
 
Cleaning stations remain in place in the dance studio, and we ask that all members continue to wipe down their equipment before and after use to help prevent the spread of COVID- 19.

As above, you are also now permitted to bring a sweat towel, but we request that all visitors use the disinfectant spray and disposable hand towels provided by us to clean all equipment after use.

Some class times have also had to be altered to allow a longer changeover between classes. Please arrive no more than 5 minutes before the start of your class. See our new class timetable for more information.

Swimming Pool

We are following regularly updated advice from our friends at PWTAG (Pool water treatment advisory group), who are providing the latest information with regard to the safety of swimming pools and the risk of transmission of COVID-19. Upon the most available research, PWTAG confirm that Coronavirus would be inactivated at the levels of chlorine in swimming pools. The World Health Organisation has also confirmed that swimming in a well maintained, properly chlorinated pool is safe.

Following recent feedback from our members and guests, currently we still require all members to pre-book their member swim or family swim sessions. The hourly booking system remains in place and all sessions can be booked via Leisure Hub, in person or over the phone by calling 01249 857335.

Children are permitted to swim during our scheduled ‘Fun and Floats & Member Swim' sessions. Please see our swimming pool timetable for details.

Showers

All shower cubicles are re-open. Swimmers must use the showers in the ladies/mens or disabled changing room following your swim. Alternatively, please use the communal showers. 

 

How do I book a swim session or group exercise class?

Booking is essential for the swimming pool and all fitness classes. We operate a 7 day book ahead policy which operates on a first come, first served basis. Unfortunately we do not operate a waiting list, but instead you can set up an automated email alert on our new app which will notify you should a place become available.

You can make all bookings through the ‘St Mary’s Health’ App, which is accessible to all members and can be found in the Apple or Android Store. From here you can book all fitness classes and swimming sessions.

If you had our previous St Mary’s Mywellness App, you will need to create a brand new account to be able to access our new booking system. The link can be found below.

Alternatively please call us on 01249 857335.
