Entry to Leisure Centre
You must have your Key card with you and should report to Reception. 50+ Members who have annual or monthly membership can book into sessions using the two Self Service Kiosks in the Leisure Centre Reception area.
The main activities available during 50+ sessions in the Leisure Centre are short tennis, badminton, keep-fit, table tennis, squash/racketball, short mat bowls, country dancing, steam room, gym, jacuzzi, sauna, water workout, and swim in the leisure lagoon. Details of these activities are on the application form.
Walks of about five miles take place on the third Wednesday of each month, usually starting at 10am and lasting until lunchtime. In addition shorter walks are organised in evenings in the Summer, usually starting at 17:00 and lasting for less than two hours. Most participants then have a meal in the nearby pub. Details of these walks are usually published in the Events section about four weeks beforehand. Walks are usually free of charge.
Due to the possible trip and fall hazard that they present to our members, we regret that dogs are not welcome on the walks.
Each walk leader is required to carry out a formal Risk Assessment of each walk. Details of this can be found on the Walks Risk Assessment page.
The club is a properly constituted club with a constitution.
Members Polo and T Shirts
These are available to purchase from any member of the committee. We have old stock of either white or green in a polyester cotton mix at a cost of £3 and £2 respectively. There is no differentiation between men and ladies sizes. However. we also have white 100% cotton polo shirts at a cost to all members of £9.50 and are available in ladies or mans sizes. Blue polyester cotton polo shirts are available to borrow for Club competitions with other 50+ clubs. e.g. REACT games.
Suitable equipment is available for members use when they attend activities at 50+ sessions. Leisure Centre management and Club Committee Members have worked together to improve the availability of this equipment. In particular, new smaller size bowls are available and can be borrowed by applying to a committee member.
