To help keep the atmosphere at the Club and create a respectful environment for all members we politely request that the following rules be observed.
Admitted on payment in advance of the Guest Fee. Guests must book with the club in advance. Members must accompany their guests at all times and members shall not leave the Club premises before their guests. All guests must sign the guest book and the appropriate Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire. The club reserves the right to refuse admission to a guest for reasons of health and safety or if the proposed guest has previously not complied with club rules.
Club approved footwear and clothing must be worn at all times. Access to the fitness areas may be limited in the event of classes or pre-organised sessions. Details of these will be posted on Club notice boards.
Members must ensure they are aware of the age restrictions (as displayed on Club notice boards, or as instructed by staff) applying to the use of the Sauna/Steam Room by minors. Minors must be supervised by an accompanying adult at all times unless otherwise permitted by the Club. Members and Guests must shower after using the Sauna and Steam Room and before using the Swimming Pool. Shaving and exfoliating are not permitted in the Sauna or Steam Room.
Members must ensure they are aware of the age restrictions (as displayed on Club notice boards, or as instructed by staff) applying to the use of the Sunbeds and other tanning facilities. Members and Guests should ensure that they familiarise themselves with the Sunbed and tanning information notices and complete the questionnaire issued by the Club prior to their first session. Safety goggles must be worn whilst Sunbeds are in operation. Members and guests are requested to clean the Sunbeds before and after use with the fluid provided.
No children are allowed in the changing room of the opposite sex once they have reached the age determined by the Club. Club staff or other users of the changing rooms at the time may agree to relax this particular restriction in particular circumstances.
For security reasons, Members and Guests are asked to store personal belongings in the lockers provided. All usage of lockers is governed by the membership terms and conditions. Lockers are provided on a daily basis only, and items left overnight will be removed on the following day and treated as lost property.
SWIMMING POOL (IF APPLICABLE)
No running, jumping or diving in Pool areas is allowed. Minors using the Pool must be suitably supervised at all times as required by the Club. Pool areas are not supervised by the Club staff at all times. For reasons of Health and Hygiene, it is necessary for all Members and guests to shower before entering the Pool. Showers are provided for this purpose in the changing areas and/or on poolside. Members and guests with verrucae, athletes foot, or similar communicable maladies must not use the Pool. Radios, lilos, buggies and anything which the Club in its absolute discretion considers to be a hazard or otherwise detrimental to the use of the Pool and its environs are not permitted. Members and guests are asked to wear conventional swimming costumes only. Babies and children are also required to wear appropriate costumes. All children under the age of 2, or not yet toilet trained must wear Aqua Nappies whilst in the Swimming Pool. The Pool may be reserved at certain periods for adults only sessions, swimming lessons or children’s parties. Prior notice will be displayed on Club notice boards. No food or drink is to be taken in or consumed in the pool area.
All lost property found on the premises should be handed in to the Club reception. Items whose ownership cannot be identified will be stored by the Club for three weeks and then donated to local charities. Items which appear valuable may be sold with the proceeds donated to charity.
SAFETY AND HYGIENE
In the interest of Safety and Hygiene, no crockery or glasses are allowed in the changing rooms, fitness areas, dance studios, swimming pool and other activity areas. No pets will be allowed in the Club premises, with the exception of guide dogs. Entry to the Club is only permitted at the Club reception and entrance. Fire exits, which are clearly marked, are there in the interests of safety and members and guests must not interfere with these doors for any reason. In the event of an emergency evacuation, members and guests must immediately make their way in an orderly fashion to the nearest available exit.
If any member shall cause nuisance or annoyance to other members, guests or Club staff, or misuse the Club facilities, or breach any etiquette guidelines, or generally behave inappropriately, the Club reserves the right to refuse admission or suspend or terminate membership. In particular, abusive language, threatening or violent behaviour will not be tolerated. All minors using the Club must be supervised by an accompanying adult at all times. No photography (including the taking of images through a mobile phone or camcorder) is allowed in any area of the Club.
COMMENTS AND COMPLAINTS
Please refer to any comments or complaints to a member of the Club staff. Written complaints must be addressed to the Club General Manager.

The Club is a non smoking environment.
PHYSICAL ACTIVITY READINESS QUESTIONNAIRE
Upon joining the club all new members are required to complete and sign a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire. The purpose of this is to ensure that the club’s staff are fully informed of any physical or medical condition which could affect the members ability or suitability to take part in physical activities. Only if the club’s staff are fully and accurately informed, can they assess the member’s health and fitness level and prepare an appropriate exercise program. The club strongly recommends that all members seek medical advice before commencing a new exercise programme and The Club reserves the right to request a doctor’s certificate and to reject a membership application if a satisfactory doctor’s certificate is not received by The Club.
