Member update: Club closure

Following the latest Government announcement regarding COVID-19, the YMCA Club will unfortunately be closed to members from Thursday 5 November until at least Wednesday 2 December 2020. 

This news comes as a real blow to us all, at a time when we have worked hard to provide a safe space for Club members to stay fit and active. 

Although the current prediction is that the Club will only be closed for a short period, the implications for us at the YMCA are enormous, and we are already very challenged in financial terms.  

Please support our work. Any donation, no matter how small will help us to keep going in these challenging times. Coming out of the pandemic, we will need our spaces of wellbeing more than ever – and we need to invest in the Club now in order to ensure we are here for the future.

For our member community 

During this second lockdown, take fullest advantage of our virtual class programme on Facebook and YouTube. Our great instructors will continue to deliver live and pre-recorded sessions for members and the wider community to take part in. 

As a lifeline to the Club, we have asked our direct debit members to consider continuing to pay a voluntary £10-a-month, through the normal direct debit facility. This is intended to support the virtual class portfolio and the ongoing running costs of the Club, so that we can reopen as soon as we can. 

This is a big ask and we appreciate that some members may be unable to do this. Please contact our Club team via email ( and we will be able to provide a refund.   

For members who have paid their membership in full for the year, we will automatically add the length of the club closure to your membership, once the Club reopens. 

Stay safe and stay positive. 

Thank you for your continued support through these uncertain times.
