Upcoming sessions to June 2024

Sessions take place on Monday's where there will be a sports session (6:15pm-7:15pm) and a swimming session (7:30pm-8:00pm) available every week for members to take part in.

You can book for a single session (Sport or Swimming), or a combined ticket if you would like to do both. Places should be booked online in advance of each session but if this is difficult, payment can be made on the day and given to the Club coordinator.

The session on Monday 4th December is the last one before the Christmas break and was meant to include a Christmas Party. Unfortunately this is not going to be possible due to the refurbishment that is taking place at Bluecoat Sports.

The Ready and Able sessions will restart again on Monday 8th January 2024 and run every week until Monday 24th June 2024 except on 1st April, 6th May and 27th May as these are Bank Holidays.
