Update 4th February

 

Tuesday Keep Fit (10.30 – 11.30) – GOOD NEWS

I am delighted to inform you that Gill Allen is our new Tuesday Keep Fit instructor and will be starting next Tuesday 11th February. Some of you will know Gill from the Gym or as an occasional cover on Reception at RPLC. I am sure that you will give Gill a warm welcome and a good turnout next week.

2020 Memberships

If you have not yet re-enrolled it is now necessary for this to be done by post to:

Linda Messingham

Membership Secretary

150 Springvale Road

Kings Worthy

Winchester SO23 7RB

Payments of £5.00 (for the calendar year or part thereof) can be made in cash or preferably by internet banking transfer (sort code 60-83-01 and a/c 20381880) or £5.30 by cheque payable to Winchester Fitness & Sports Club. After the end of January, it is no longer possible to carry out re-enrolments at River Park Leisure Centre. New members will continue to be enrolled by the duty committee person on site.

Please don’t forget to fill out your emergency contact and emergency medical details on the back of your membership card. If you have paid by internet banking it is still necessary to send in a completed, both sides, membership form.

Instructor Led Classes

Committee members often get asked if “do I have to pay for the whole session as I’m on holiday for (e.g.) 4 weeks”. As the club has to pay the instructor regardless of whether or not you attend the answer is that you unfortunately do need to pay. The only exception to this is for someone joining part way through a course who has not attended that group before.

If you no longer wish to retain a place on any of these courses please let the Chairman or another committee member know.

Monday Keep Fit (14.00 – 15.00)

The current session will be from 6th January to 10th February inclusive and costs £24.00; there is no need to pay anything at Reception for this. After half-term  there will be 6 weeks from 24th February to 30th March inclusive.

Thursday Keep Fit (10.00 – 11.00)

The current session will be from 6th January to 10th February and then from 24th February to 30th March inclusive. There is still a waiting list for this; please speak to Kathy Tyrrell if you wish to join this list.

T'ai Chi

There are currently vacancies for this class.

Sessions will be from Thursday 9th to Thursday 6th February and 20th February. March dates are 5th, 12th and 19th. There will be no class on 26th March. April dates will be notified when available.

Pilates

Both classes are currently full with a waiting list in operation.

The current session for the 10.00 class runs to 13th February. The next session is from 20th February to 2nd April inclusive, 7 weeks at a total cost of £28.00.

Yoga

The current session runs for 6 weeks to 13th February, at a cost of £12.00. Following half-term classes start again on 27th February and end on Thursday 6th April. This is a 6 week session at a cost of £12.00.  There are currently a few vacancies for this class if anyone is interested.

Short Tennis on Fridays

This costs of £2.50 per attendance payable at Reception. There is no payment to the club required for this.  This group will not meet over half-term (21st February) or the Easter school holidays.

Swimming & Aquacise

These sessions are running as normal, assuming the boiler is fixed to heat the pool!

 

Remap Social

This is taking place on Thursday 12th March; further information and the booking list is available on the club noticeboard and from Linda Williams (short tennis).

REACT Games

The REACT Secretary has just informed us that Winchester were the very first winners of the overall trophy back in 1982/83, and also held it from 1988 - 1991. As this year’s event is in Fareham we can hopefully get a good entry and have a go at regaining the title.

Gym Allocations

The committee have agreed a new process for allocating the limited number of gym spaces from 1st April. It will now be a two-stage process with the first week (Stage 1) being open only to those members who didn’t obtain a place in the previous quarter’s allocation. Anyone who fills in a place when they have been allocated a place in the previous quarter will have their names removed.

One week later the list of remaining vacancies (Stage 2) will be made available to all members. Hopefully this will give opportunities to a wider group of people both in terms of a place but also of day and time.

Because of holidays the timetable will be as follows:

Tuesday 10 March @ 10.00          Stage1

Tuesday 17 March @ 10.00          Stage 2

The committee hope that, while this new process won’t please everyone, this will widen the opportunities available.
