Summer for Juniors & Families at Club Towers
Here we summarise everything available for juniors and families at the Club this Summer. We will continue to update this as we add any events, so do check back or keep an eye on our Facebook page and newsletters.
We will be running our summer holiday timetable from the 26th July until the 5th September – this can be found here.
Please note the additional adult only swim only times and that booking is no longer required. We are also bringing back our popular family splash sessions on Saturdays and Sundays from 2pm to 3.30pm, commencing 31st July. Inflatables and balls are allowed during these lifeguarded sessions.
We are running two crash courses in the holidays both for younger swimmers (duckling 1-4 and stages, 1, 2 & 3) daily between:
- 2nd-6th August, 2-3pm
- 16-20th August, 2- 3pm.
Each course is £72 and places should be booked at Reception by the 23rd July.
Parent & Junior Gym
Our 12-15 year old junior members can use the gym under parental supervision at the following times:
Weekdays: Any time apart from 5.15pm to 8.15pm
Weekends: Any time after 12.15pm.
Juniors may use any equipment apart from free weights and our plate-loaded kit. They must do a gym induction and sign a Health Commitment Statement before using the gym for the first time, with the parent also signing the Health Commitment Statement to record their approval.
The parent/guardian must obviously remain in the gym at all times, and we expect parents to keep an eye on their juniors whilst they are exercising, although they might be in a different part of the gym. The usual rules on booking a space, cleaning equipment and general gym etiquette apply.
Junior Gym Floor Workouts
We offer junior gym floor workouts for our 12-15 year old members and these will continue throughout the Summer. These 30-minute classes focus on all round fitness and strength, a great workout for teens of all levels. Classes are bookable on the App and will run at the following times:
- Tuesday 4.30-5.00pm
- Thursdays and Fridays 5.30-6.00pm
A parent/guardian must be in the Club but does not have to be on the gym floor.
Junior Members – Age 15
Junior members can use our gym on their own from the age of 15, once they have had an induction. This has recently changed from 16, and there are some guidelines to follow, which can be found here.
The creche continues to be open Monday to Friday from 9am to 1pm and Saturdays from 8.30am to 12.30pm, for children from 3 months to 6 years. It’s £6 per hour and places must be booked and paid for in advance at Reception.
Junior Dance Class
Our dance class will continue to run every Tuesday at 4pm in the Mind and Body studio. This 45-minute class is aimed at boys and girls aged 8-15 and is for all levels/abilities. This is bookable on the app or with the Reception team.
This is a workout for you to do with your child, aimed at ages 5-12 running every Saturday and will run right through the holidays with our PT Mark. Book a space for you and your child on the app.
During the holidays, the table tennis will be out every weekday from opening until 2.45pm as well as at our usual weekend times of 2-8pm. This is bookable at Reception. Under 12s must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Over 12s can play on their own but the parent/guardian must remain in the Club. We do have racquets and balls you can borrow, but please do clean these before/after use and please do remember to wear clean, non-marking shoes – thank you!
The soft play is now fully open for children 7 and under. We do still encourage hand washing/sanitising before and after use. Children must be accompanied at all times.
Every second Saturday, we will be running a BBQ in the afternoon from 12 noon to around 4pm, provided the weather is good. The first one will be on 17/7, and future dates will be 31/7, 14/8 and 28/8. A great way to relax and spend time with the family, and maybe combine this with a swim during our family splash session.
Kids Special Events
Most children love arts and craft, junk modelling and picnics! So why not dip into one of our special events over the holidays and give yourself a short break (either in or out of the Club!) Booking will open for all on Tuesday 20th July. Details are as follows:
Kids Arts & Crafts – Thursday 5th August, 2- 4pm
£8 per hour which includes take home crafts. Suitable for ages 4 – 10
Junk Modelling Fun – Tuesday 10th August, 3-5pm

Parent’s can leave the Club during the first two events if they wish, provided emergency contact details are provided. For the picnic, parents must stay at the Club.
These are all bookable from Tuesday 20th July at Reception or with the Creche team.
We are running two squash taster sessions for junior members aged 4 – 11 in August.
Saturday 21st and 28th August – 10.15 – 11am
Suitable for complete beginners right through to those who already play with us on a Saturday. For those who are new players we do have racquets and googles to borrow, but please do wear clean, non-marking shoes.
Sessions are free and bookable at Reception.
We are offering four weeks of tennis coaching sessions for all ages and abilities. Whether your child is already part of our junior tennis programme and is keen to keep playing over the Summer, would like to try our tennis coaching for the first time, or is just looking for a way to stay active this August, everyone is very welcome. All the sessions will be based around a series of drills, games and challenges to improve technical ability. There will be individual instruction from the coaches as well as fun group activities.
You don’t need to stick to the coaching session you normally do in term time. For example if your child is a hot shot they can attend any of the below hot shots sessions even if they normally come on a Wednesday.
The sessions will start w/c 2nd August at the following times.
Mondays – with coach Tom
4-5pm – Hot Shots (red ball) (ages 4-9)
5-6pm Aces (orange ball) (ages 7-10) & Slammers (green ball) (ages 9-11)
6-7pm Team (yellow ball (ages 11+)
Wednesdays – with coach Dave
4 – 5pm – Hot Shots (red ball) (ages 4-9)
5-6pm – Aces (orange ball) (ages 7-10) & Slammers (green ball) (ages 9-11)
6-7pm – Team (yellow ball (ages 11+)
Saturdays with coach Dave Revell
9-10am – Hot Shots (red ball) (ages 4-9)
10-11am – Aces (orange ball) (ages 7-10) & Slammers (green ball) (ages 9-11)
11-12pm – Team (yellow ball (ages 11+)
Don’t worry if you don’t have a racquet as we have them to lend out, but please do wear clean, non-marking shoes.
The 4-week course is £28 and is bookable at Reception. We are ideally aiming for children to book all four sessions as they will progress each week but if you are on holiday and can only make two or three that’s no problem – the cost will be £8 per session.
if you aren’t sure which is the best session for your child, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Head Coach Nick Boys on 07810 832774 and he will be happy to help.
Multi Sports Fun
Every Friday in August (6th, 13th, 20th, 27th) we will be running a multi sports games session with coach Tom on the indoor courts from 2-4pm. Each session will be focused on fun, energy and movement!
Suitable for junior members aged 4-11. No equipment is needed – everything will be provided (but do bring your own tennis racquet if you have one and want to bring it). Please do bring a drink and a small snack and remember to wear clean non-marking shoes.
£14 per session or book all four for £50.
