Urgent Update on Training Sessions for Week Commencing 28th April
The club has been informed by the leisure centre that the pool will be closed from Monday 28th April until Friday 2nd May for maintenance work to be carried out. Unfortunately therefore we will have to cancel all regular training sessions for that time period.
Alternative training sessions have been arranged for Barracuda A’s and competitive Tiger Sharks only at Ashington leisure centre on:
- Monday 28th 6.00 - 7.00 pm
- Wednesday 30th 7.00 - 8.00 pm
- Thursday 1st May 6.30 - 7.30 pm
The pool should be back in action on Saturday 3rd May for our morning session.
