We were hoping the @DCMS would have published its latest guidance by now ahead of the country moving into tiered restrictions on 2 December.
We have updated our coronavirus FAQs based on what we know so far and will clarify further when we receive the latest guidance ⬇️

We are still waiting for over 18 guidance. We have put our case forward. We will keep checking and will update when we can.

I have been asked why over 18s are not able at the moment to return to training.
The new tier 3 rules that affect us are:
- leisure and sports facilities may continue to stay open, but group exercise classes (including fitness and dance) should not go ahead. Saunas and steam rooms should close
- organised indoor sport, physical activity and exercise classes cannot take place indoors. There are exceptions for indoor disability sport, sport for educational purposes and supervised sport and physical activity for under-18s
Having said this Swim England today are seeking clarification with government as to how this affects our over 18 swimmers. We may have some more news Friday.
Fingers crossed everyone!!!
We will return to training on Wednesday 2nd December.
Unfortunately as we are in new tier 3 we are not able to let over 18s return to training. If you are over 18 your direct debit will remain frozen.
If you are over 18 and would still like to attend the gym and public lane swimming as individuals we can offer a discounted rate of £25 per month. Please let me know if you want to take up this offer.
Once again I must remind everyone that social distancing must be practiced at all times.
Morning training will recommence on Tuesday 8th September. As normal Tuesday and Thursday 5:30am-7:00am Saturdays 5:30am-7:30am.
