We have enjoyed welcoming back the adult groups and water aerobics. We have now added a water aerobics session on a Thursday 12-1pm at the Woodside Park pool. This can be booked online and will start after the half term. We continue to run the Tuesday session at Whetstone (1230-130pm)
Changing rooms: These are now open but in an ever changing world we live in at the moment the guidelines are still strict from the national governing bodies. Please ask yourself: Do you really need to use them? We are asked from the governing bodies to NOT encourage to use them. If you must use them, please follow the rules. Such as: wear a mask - not just pull your top up over your mouth!, be at the black crosses, dry off and leave. We really appreciate your help in trying to keep everyone safe.
Teachers in the water: This still is not advised by the governing bodies and insurance companies, so at the moment this will not happen. We understand that for some young children this would benefit but we are also pleased to see the majority gaining their confidence and independence very quickly.
Emergency Frist Aid at Work (EFAW): Course £70. Thursday 17th June.
Soft play: This is at the Woodside Park pool. Current costs are £40 per hour session total.. Max 10 children, 6 adult
Holiday courses and family swims: available online.
This term dates: No term swimming half term Monday 31st to Sunday 6th June. Term ends Sunday 11th July.
Badge Week: Monday 28th June. Badge week will be running as normal. But for COVID reasons we are unable to run any badges with pyjamas. An alternative will be set.
September 2021 term dates: Monday 13th September to Sunday 5th December. Half term: Monday 25th to Sunday 31st October. The price for next term will be £143 for group lessons; £319 1-1 lessons; £451 2-1 lessons, Water Aerobics £88. The price for the group lessons and aerobics have increased. This is not something that we would like to do, and we are sorry to do this. Due to the last year where we were closed for 7 months, and the swimming pool expenses still ongoing and on return with restricted numbers, we have had to increase the fees by 72p per lesson. The water aerobics lessons were previously £5 per session and we have always tried to keep this low but clearly with restricted numbers and the instructors fee, the sessions have been running at a loss. These sessions are now £8 per session.
Recurring payments: This is not currently active due to stopping this during the pandemic. Please book online for the September term where you will then have the option to tick the box for recurring payments to start again for the following term. Recurring payments means that once you have signed up to this, your place, day and time is automatically renewed for the following term so you do not have to do a thing.
Customers with credit from the April 2020 term ONLY: Please email the pool from now until Friday 11th June with your preferred day and time and with a second choice. You will be put onto our priority waiting list.
Existing customers: Bookings will start at 11am Friday 28th May and close Friday 11th June at 12 noon. This is giving April 2021 term customers 2 weeks to rebook.
New siblings: Thursday 17th June 11am-4pm.
New and returning customers: Monday 21st June from 11am.
We would like to thank you for your custom and support through this year. We totally understand that getting dry outside is not ideal, but we hope that the measures we have put in place, has kept everyone safe and we would like to thank you for all keeping to the guidelines we have been given by the national governing bodies.
