Pool and spa closures

We're refurbishing our saunas from 8.30pm on Tuesday 1st April to Saturday 5th April - as a result, both the male and female saunas will be closed during this time. However, it'll be worth the wait once the work is complete.

In addition, we've been given the honour of hosting an inter-club swimming gala on Sunday 6th April with members from all over the region visiting to do battle in the water. Unfortunately, while the gala is taking place between 11.30am and 5pm, our indoor pool, spa and steam room will be out of action.
