Nottingham Newsletter June 2018

5th June 2018 | Nottingham

Manager’s Welcome

We’re just over here, hoping for a baking hot June and a good run in the World Cup for England!

Speaking of heat, we really do thank you for your patience during the past few weeks of difficulty we’ve had with our air handling system. Not easy conditions to work out in and we know how frustrated you must be. To give a bit of background, the gym temperature is operated by an air handling system along with a chiller. The chiller has failed and needs totally replacing. This is a substantial piece of equipment, not just one part, and it has been ordered. We have a delivery and install date of week commencing 23rd July. In the meantime, we have had a company visit to assess any temporary measures they can advise us on. Unfortunately, they cannot provide temporary chillers as they would not be compatible with our existing system. Fans and condensers have been advised and are in place. In the meantime the gym team are on hand to fill up your water bottles and keep you hydrated.

The changing room refurb is now almost complete and we can bring you the following updates…

The showers are now fully operational and soap dispensers are being fitted.

2 toilets are operational; unfortunately for the remaining 3 we are awaiting back panels which will be with us in 3 weeks. We have requested a short term solution to be put in place by the building team.

For the back section of lockers, the floor requires some attention to allow us to open this fully; we will confirm these dates as soon as we have them.

The next stage will be completing the lockers and tiling in the family/disabled changing rooms; dates will be planned for this when the females are fully completed.

Thank you once again for your patience while this work has been on-going.

Within this month’s newsletter, we’ve activities for the kids with summer football camps and cricket skills with Little Wickets, getting fit for a great charity, Tackle Prostate Cancer with more than one way that you can get involved with that and finally, the latest on the Roko app!

Just June…World Cup fever is about to take over; we will be showing matches on the TV’s in the gym and in the Club Lounge. For those of you who are looking for an escape…we’re still here for you too; why not try a class you’ve never tried before?

Fitness News


Cycle 250 miles for Tackle Prostate Cancer From the 14 May – 11 June

Our charity gym challenge is still going on so if you have the pedal power we want you to commit to raising funds for the charity Tackle Prostate Cancer. This charity has been set up to act as the voice of prostate cancer patients and their families and also to raise awareness of prostate cancer in the general population.  Did you know that Prostate Cancer is the most common cancer in men and over 11,000 men die in the UK each year and more than 47,000 men are diagnosed with it.  That’s one every 45 seconds. 

Lets help to reverse these statistics now!

How can YOU help?!

We are asking members to cycle 250 miles in a 4 week period, that’s 62.5 miles per week and .1% of 250,000 miles (the distance between us and the moon!). With the weather getting warmer it can either be on your trusty road, mountain or hybrid bike or on one of the bikes in the gym.  You can even using your CYCLonE class and clock up the miles! The record so far for achieving the 250 miles is just 3 days…well done Roger!

There are two ways in which you can raise money for your event:

Set up a fundraising page on MyDonate. This is just like JustGiving but MyDonate does not take any commission so more of the funds you raise will come to us. You can easily see who has sponsored you and your supporters are automatically thanked. But you can of course thank them personally as well if you want.

Or use a sponsorship form (available from Jackie Cunningham). If you prefer to use a form that people can fill out to support you, then this is the one for you.

For a further challenge, Jackie is throwing down the gauntlet and Roko Rebel cyclists will have the opportunity to cycle from Roko Nottingham to Roko York – we’re just confirming the last few details but speak to Jackie for more information!

If you’d rather support the charity from afar, from 1st June, our prize draw will be live.

To be in with a chance of winning choose your ticket space from our poster, adding your name and telephone number. Prizes will be picked at random on Friday 22 June 2018.

Ticket poster is available on reception

Donations of £2 and above required to be in with a chance to win one of our prizes which include…
• 2017/18 signed Nottingham Forest Football
• 2017/18 Signed Notts County Football
• 2017/18 Nottingham Forest Shirt
• Meal for 2 at The Botanist
• And more to be confirmed…You’ve Got To Be In It To Win It!

Swimming News

Kid's Activities


“1st Innings” Little Wickets for Pre-School Girls & Boys from 2 ½

Roko Nottingham on Friday Mornings

More than just learning to bat, bowl and field, Little Wickets sows the seeds for a lifelong passion for sport. ‘The Spirit of Cricket’ is at the heart of everything we do.

Kids have so much fun they don’t even realise the self-confidence & positive life skills they are learning. Fun warm-up games, skill based activities & soft ball cricket games focus on the ‘FUNdamentals of Movement’, to develop the kids hand/eye co-ordination, individual skills, physical fitness, a sense of team work & fair play. The coaches always encourage the kids to join in as independently as possible, but their grown-ups can join in as much or as little as they feel is necessary. Most importantly the emphasis is always on joining in and having fun!

Advance Block Booking Only backed by our Newcomer’s Guarantee

Don’t forget to tell Little Wickets your Roko Membership Number to secure your exclusive Roko Members Discount at the Friday Roko Sessions!
