*NEW* Paddlesport Summer Day Camps

*MORE DATES ADDED* 2021 Open Introductory Courses


The gym and changing rooms will be re-opening this week (Monday 12th April 2021). The Covid procedures are still in place which are available on the Wey Kayak Club website and on display in the gym, all users of the gym and changing rooms must follow these rules to ensure that we minimise the risk of infection.

The gym can only be used by persons from the Member Clubs who have received their individual gym induction from an approved source.  No visitors or friends/ partners are permitted. There is a maximum of 6 people permitted in the gym at any one time.

 

Although the changing rooms are open numbers are limited to 6 in each changing room so please change and shower at home where possible.

The use of the facility will be limited to different groups at certain times of the day to protect the safety of all users. If you would like to use the gym you will need to book into a session using the form in the following link http://www.weykayak.co.uk/gym-booking/. If the session is already fully booked you will not be able to attend.

On arrival at the centre you must check in using the NHS QR code or sign in sheet and use the hand sanitiser available. You must bring your own towels, mats and drinks bottles. After using a piece of equipment you must thoroughly clean it using the anti-bacterial spray and paper towels available particularly focusing on hand contact points. The last 10 minutes of your hour session in the gym should be spent cleaning down the areas you have used. Social distancing must be followed at all times and you must not spot other users directly above or facing them.

During lockdown the ventilation and filtration system has been upgraded to improve the airflow in the gym.

Some limited paddle machine sessions will continue, however now that we are able to return to paddling on the water we will soon be contacting paddlers with machines to arrange for these to be returned to the club.
