RETURN TO TRAINING

We have listened to you - our members - and we're delighted to announce that we will now be offering the opportunity for you to safely return to training.

 

To be able to achieve this, we will be operating a 'phased return', offering a reduced timetable of closed classes, initally for members only, with a limited number of spaces available in each. We will also be adhering to additional safety precautions (listed below) to ensure risks are kept to a minimum.

These classes must be booked in advance, including the completion of our Return to Training form and successful payment per class. You will not be admitted entrance into any classes without prior confirmation of your booking. Spaces will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis.
