Boxing and Circuit Rooms temporarily closed - everything else is open as usual

Please do not enter any room that has been closed off with yellow hazard tape and signs. From 4 Septemer 2015 until further notice, this includes the Circuit and Boxing Rooms. We will reopen these next week. We need a few days for the paint to fully dry and harden, and to ensure your safety, as not all equipment has been secured yet.

Please be mindful of wet paint and paint smells. If you feel dizzy or faint please report to reception immediately for assistance. Alternative exercise areas are available on mezzanines, fitness centre, boxing room and sportshall/gymnasium. Thanks for your co-operation!
