Team Bath Sports Training Village reopening for gym and swim sessions from week commencing Monday, August 3
We are delighted to announce that the Team Bath Sports Training Village will begin the first phase of reopening on Monday, August 3, in line with new government guidelines.
Our doors are set to open at 8am on Monday for gym customers and on Wednesday, August 5 for anyone to swim. Indoor fitness classes will resume on August 10, although our new Beach Fitness outdoor offering will be available at 9am and 1.30pm on Tuesday, August 4.
To provide peace of mind as people return to sport and training, a number of new Covid-compliant measures – including mandatory bookings – have been introduced as per UK Government and UK Active official guidance with safety in mind.
Social-distancing measures include a clearly-marked, one-way system in operation on all walkways, corridors and stair areas, and there are new 3m-squared individual training zones in the gym and fitness studios with separations between equipment to meet regulations.
In order to monitor numbers and control access on site, customers will need to book their gym workout or swim session – available in 60-minute time slots up to 24 hours in advance – via our flexible density booking system, accessible at www.teambath.com/bookonline or via the Team Bath Active app.
Customers are also being encouraged to arrive ready to exercise and leave the building immediately after their session, with changing rooms and lockers initially only available to swimmers.
The STV has been deep cleaned since shutting down in March and a new, more regular cleaning regime has been instituted in sports spaces and other areas including twice-daily cleaning slots in the main areas of the gym.
Anti-bacterial wipes and sprays will also be provided in the gym, with customers asked to help by cleaning gym equipment before and after use and observing good hand hygiene at all times.
Stephen Baddeley, Director of Sport, said: “Team Bath are very much looking forward to welcoming you back into the Sports Training Village. We have been working hard during the lockdown period to ensure we can provide a compliant environment for all our customers.
“Our elite NGB squads have been back in training with us for the past few weeks and their presence on site has allowed us to test and refine our one-way systems, cleaning regimes, signage and social-distancing measures ahead of this first phase of public reopening.
“We feel these new measures will provide peace of mind so that people can enjoy their sport and the benefit of their physical workouts once more in our inspirational and motivational setting. As always, though, we’ll be asking customers for suggestions and advice if they spot any improvements we could make.”
For people who would like to continue exercising outdoors, the Team Bath Fitness team has launched a new fresh-air fitness offer utilising the STV’s beach volleyball courts. The 30-minute sessions are free to members and £5 for non-members – click here for more information and details of how to book a place.
Indoor exercise classes and our new virtual fitness offering will begin on Monday, August 10th.
The Team Bath Tennis outdoor courts are also available to book on weekdays and Saturdays. Visit www.teambath.com/tennis for further details.
