SUMMER SQUASH ACTIVITY CAMP
We have had an overwhelming response to this camp and all places are full.
It has been great to see everyone getting back in to the gym and starting back in to their routine. We would like to remind all members to please make sure that you;
- Book in for your Gym Slot in Advance
- Sign in at the gym desk on arrival
- Sanitize your hands and all equipment you use before and after use
- Enjoy Yourself!
Need some help with your training?
Over the past 2 weeks we have noticed that not all of our members know that we offer Free Workout Programs here at the gym too. If you want to get in to a new routine or just want to update or modify your current routine, you can book in with any of us for a time that suits you and we will be more than happy to help you out.
If you feel you need a bit more help, we also offer personal training where your trainer will support you through every session, co-ordinate your workouts for you and can give you nutritional advice to maximize your results. You can ask any of our team for the cost of this service.
Enjoy the Weather!
On those sunny days when you want to get both a workout in and enjoy the sunshine, feel free to use the grass area with some of your equipment to get some work done while enjoying the sunny weather.
We are seeking to recruit Volunteers to do the Bar.
The Bar has been run by Volunteers since it opened in 1977 and we now need your assistance to continue with this. We are asking for you to join a nightly team were are hoping we can have enough volunteers that you will only be asked to do 2 hours per month.
This is a great way for you to meet other members and also to be part of a tradition that has served the Club both Socially and Financially for over 40 years. There are a number of Members who are stepping down after a long number of Years (decades) from the Bar Roster and I would like to thank them on your behalf for all the time they gave to the Club.
Please leave your name in the Office if you are interested and we will be in contact.
Resurfacing of tennis courts 7,8,9 commencing on Monday 21 June
We would just like to advise you that resurfacing of tennis courts 7,8,9 will be commencing on Monday 21 June. The project should be completed in a week.
We have blocked the courts 7,8,9 for the whole week, while court 3 is blocked until 6pm each day as it will be used for access.
We will be limited for tennis court availability next week but it will all be worth it once we have three brand new courts ready for play the following week.
Thank you for understanding.
