Welcome Back to The Northern!

We’ve been mopped and polished from top to bottom, the floor signs are down, the sanitisers are up, the lights are on and the clocks are ticking again …

We’re all ready for a SAFE return to indoor sport on Saturday 25th.

So here’s some stuff you need to know:

 Opening Times: 7am – 9pm, Mon – Fri; 9am – 6pm, weekends;

Cleaners will be on site during the day but PLEASE use the sanitiser spray to cleanse the area after using the toilet;

A one-way system is clearly marked out but we’re not a huge building, PLEASE make way for other members using the same route when necessary!

 The Gym:

* 1-hour timed slots are available to book now on MindBody;

* Users will enter by the usual door and exit via the fire escape;

* Please use the hand sanitiser provided before entering and leaving the courts;

* The squash balcony is closed to everyone except the coaching team;

* Match play is only permitted between members of the same household or family support bubble; two people from different households are allowed on court together but must maintain social distancing;
