Juniors & Creche

We are a family club and have plenty of activities to help get your children active.

We are passionate about families being able to spend time together in the Club exercising, playing sport and relaxing. With that in mind we have outlined below all the activities junior members can take part in:

Creche

Our creche is open six mornings a week from 9am to 1pm, and accepts children over 3 months old. It can be booked by calling the Reception Team on 01234 607111 a week in advance on a first come, first served basis and is very popular with Mums and Dads alike. So, drop your youngsters off and come and enjoy some exercise, or simply take the chance to relax and unwind in the spa or over a coffee.

From time to time we run additional sessions in holidays, or at other times, focused on art & crafts or other themes. These are normally popular, so we recommend you book early.
