Coronavirus (Covid-19): Centre Re-opening

It is with a heavy heart that both of our centres have to close after entering tier 4 restrictions. 

All memberships and swimming lessons are now frozen. Anytime paid for will be automatically added to your memberships upon re-opening. We will not be taking any further Direct Debit payments until we have a re-opening date. Please do not cancel your Direct Debit with your bank.
