Covid-19 Closedown


Covid-19 Closedown

02.11.2020 - Sports Centre Closure

Unfortunately, following the Government announcement made recently, we can confirm we will be CLOSED for all activity as of Thursday 5th November. This includes the gym, group exercise classes, and all sports facility bookings.

We will be operating as normal up until closing time on Wednesday 4th, including group exercise classes running.

Direct Debits - we will be instructing Harlands to freeze all memberships for 1 payment. This is quite a time consuming task, so if they are too late to freeze your next due payment, it will be the one after that (December). For queries about your payments, please call Harlands directly on 01444 449156 (option 1).

Our team will either be furloughed or working remotely so no one will be on site to manage the phones. Please send all enquiries to scenquiries@wellswaymat.com.

We will continue to update the website and social media pages with important information.

TT-Tennis Now at SBL Sports Centre

We are really pleased to announce that we have partnered with TT-Tennis to offer a new and exciting tennis coaching programme to the local community.

Headed up by Tom Therrien, coaching will be offered to players aged 5+ with one to one support in a fun and enjoyable setting. Children of all abilities are welcome, and parents are encouraged to jump on court as well! Tennis is a great way to meet new people, get physically active in the fresh air, and develop personal skills such as decision making and self confidence.

Tom and his team are hugely experienced, having already established successful and thriving coaching programmes at other venues. All coaches are LTA qualified and between them have many years experience not only coaching but also playing the game.

Tom is running 3 taster sessions at SBL Sports Centre - 3rd, 10th and 17th October 9.30-12.30pm. For more information or to book your place on one the taster sessions, please visit the TT-Tennis website.

Direct Debit Information

Direct Debit Information

Important - Direct Debits

When we were approved to re-open, we instructed Harlands, the company who manage our Direct Debit payments, to reactivate memberships as of Monday 10th August. Unfortunately but understandably, for reasons beyond our control, this was not actioned and therefore payments were not taken in August 2020.

Harlands are due to imminently communicate directly with members to state what payments will be taken and when, including when your normal monthly Direct Debit will commence.

Although we are the service provider, your membership and direct debit contract is with Harlands (as written into the Ts and Cs upon joining) and therefore, we ask you to contact Harlands directly if you have any queries. You can contact them on 01444 449156 (option 1), or by emailing c.service@harlandsgroup.co.uk. Please be aware they are experiencing a very high volume of enquiries at the moment and are operating with covid19 compromises like many. Your patience and understanding is appreciated during this time.

We have been made aware of some members being contacted to explain when their payments would restart even though they have previously requested to keep their membership frozen. If you experience this, please contact Harlands with the freeze reference number that would have been emailed to you at the time of request.

Many thanks

Important - Parking Changes

Important - Parking Changes

Important - Parking Changes

SBL Academy staff and pupils are back full time as of Thursday 3rd September. The normal school car park will be CLOSED to allow for outdoor space for a year group bubble, therefore all staff will be using the Sports Centre car park. As a result, we are expecting the Sports Centre car park to be much busier than normal. Please note this will be especially the case at the start and end of the school day.

We will be reserving some spaces within the car park, however please prepare for this situation by parking on the street, walking or using public transport where possible.

Apologies for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.

14.08.2020 - Frozen Memberships

When we reopened on Monday 10th August, all memberships went 'live' again unless you requested to freeze them with Harland's, the company who manage our membership Direct Debits on our behalf.

If you selected to freeze your membership, you chose to freeze the number of payments you make. For example, if your Direct Debit is normally paid on 28th of the month, and you chose to freeze 2 payments, your next payment would not come out until 28th October. This is also the date you are 'live' again and can make gym and class bookings.

If you do have any questions or concerns, in the first instance please contact Harland's directly, on 01444 449156 and select option 1.

GoFundMe - Keeping SBL Active!

We need YOU! We are aiming to raise £2,000 to purchase some new equipment when we open our doors once more to our members and users.

As with many businesses, we have been hit very hard financially with having to close our doors. We are still paying operational costs, but currently receiving no income. That's why we are calling upon our community's generosity to help raise some funds and give our users something to look forward to!

With the money we raise we want to buy some new and improved equipment to help encourage and energise users to get back into the swing of things.

If you are able to donate, any amount would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks for your continued support
