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.
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.
As of Monday 29th March we are able to get back out on the water in groups and run coached sessions. Club boats will now be available for use but the showers, changing rooms and gym will remain closed. Toilets can be used if required.

We specialise in flat water canoeing from our clubhouse on the River Wey. Members compete at all levels around the country at marathon and sprint races.
