Club Whitford Covid-19 Policy
The well-being and the safety of all our guests, members and staff remains our utmost priority. We have put in place the following measures to ensure that everyone that uses our club are in a safe environment while onsite.
To allow us to follow guidelines set out to us and to keep you and all our staff safe we will have to implement a pre-booking system for the pool and gym. Members will be unable to bring a guest with them due to reduction in capacity to allow for social distancing and tracing.
We have found innovative ways of sterilizing the air in the pool deck area using an ultrasonic ozone cleaning machine and we will use a fogger machine to sanitise reception, all changing areas, gym & gym equipment using a product call Sterinova which disinfects for 24 hours. This procedure will take place over night. We will as also be supplementing this with continuous disinfection throughout the day paying particular attention to high touch areas.
General Rules within the club:
• Adhere to 2m social distancing whilst in all areas in the club
• Sanitize on entry to the club at the front door
• Disinfect all equipment before & after use
• Wear a mask in public areas
• If you are feeling unwell please do NOT come to the club
• Members will be unable to bring a guest with them due to reduction in capacity to allow for social distancing and tracing.
Sanitisation stations will be available throughout the club for your use, we all have a role to play in keeping the Club a safe environment for everyone

Incorporated into our main pool is our hydrotherapy area. This is a more shallow section of the pool, bathed in a peaceful, ambient light, with features such as geyser jets and water fountains to help you ease away the stresses and strains of the day.
If you like to bring the kids for a swim we have you covered with a children’s pool for those who may need a shallower, less daunting setting to begin their journey in learning to swim. Children are also welcome to use the rest of the pool, including all the features in the hydrotherapy area from opening until 7pm daily.
Kept at wonderfully warm 38˚C our Jacuzzi is ever popular with both members and guests alike. While away your worries with a soothing soak, letting the balmy water ease out the tensions in your body or, for those brave enough, combine with alternating plunges in the cold bath to help alleviate muscle pains and strains.
