PT Sessions

PT sessions continue to be available to book.  The team are already getting booked up for January, so do get in touch with them now to avoid disappointment. You can find out more about our personal trainers including the areas they specialise in and their contact details here.

Refresher Gym Induction

If you want to get a head start on your January exercise routine but would like some help why not book a refresher gym induction with the team or ask them to help you with designing a tailored programme.  Please speak to the Reception team to book a slot with one of the PTs.

Group Exercise Classes

We will be running a reduced group exercise timetable from Wednesday 20th December until Tuesday 3rd January due to decreased member demand and instructor availability.  The most up to date place to find out which classes are running is our app.

Our on-line service, Club Towers Live, will continue over the Christmas and New Year period – please refer to the website for the latest information on class times. As well as the live classes we have a large On Demand library so you can pick the class that you like and do it at a time that suits you – often easier in the holidays! If you haven’t requested your free access code and would like to access the service, please email [email protected].

We will hit the ground running in January with our next Les Mills Launch which will take place over the weekend of the 13th and 14th January.  This a perfect chance to try a new class as the routines and movements are new to everyone.  The classes will be available to book in the app in the usual way 6 days before.  Look out for details in the Club and on Facebook too.

Courts remain open to book in the usual way as per the above Club opening hours.

Junior coaching also takes a break with last sessions on Saturday 16th December. The junior coaching timetable will start again week commencing Monday 8th January. Booking for existing players opens from the 11th December, with bookings for new juniors taken from the 18th December.

To give juniors an opportunity to try our coaching before signing up to a full term we are running free tasters in January as follows.

Whilst the taster sessions are free, please do book at Reception so that we know the numbers to expect.  We have racquets to borrow but please do ensure children are in clean non-marking shoes. 

If you would like your child to try either sport (or both!) but can’t make the dates above, please email Steve on [email protected] and hopefully we can arrange another date that works.

Nutrition Services

Free 20-Minute Consultation

We are continuing to offer all members a free 20-minute nutrition consultation with our in-house Precision Nutrition Coach Ann.  This will be an informal chat which gives members an opportunity to discuss anything about their nutrition habits and areas they would like to improve upon.  If you struggle to lose weight, have an unhealthy relationship with food, want to break overeating habits, or are just keen to learn more about making the right food choices, then book a free consultation today. To book in please speak to the Reception team or email Ann through [email protected] and she will get in touch to arrange a time.


A quick reminder about our excellent nutrition info hub, which offers a wide range of wellbeing content that we believe our members might find useful. Articles cover topics such as The Power of Sleep, 25 Ways to Eat Well on the Go, How to Stop Stress Eating, and much more. Plus we recently added a video seminar on “Why Diets Don’t Work – How to Take a Different Approach” – you can check it all out here
