Rec Centre update

Due to the Government's recent announcement that we will stay in Alert Level 3 for another 2 weeks, we have, like many other businesses, had to temporarily close our facilities. We will remain closed
until the alert levels are reduced and the Government deems it safe for us to reopen once again. 

Although the Rec Centre is physically closed we still have a range of live classes available online for you to join. You can find the group fitness class schedule here

We miss you all already and hope that you are staying safe, staying healthy and staying home!
