Manager's Message

Time to come back indoors?
It is certainly starting to feel like the autumn is upon us with dare I say it a slight hint of a frost on an early morning! The nights are going to start to draw in too so it’s a perfect opportunity to get back into the club and enjoy all we have to offer… maybe even an opportunity to sample some personal training to help kick start your workouts or maybe even time to try our gorgeous soup of the day!

Warm regards

Gary Jepson
General Manager

Wednesday Evenings
After receiving such a high demand for adult swimming lessons and kids coaching swimming classes, Roko have now programmed these to take place on a Wednesday evening.  Wednesdays from 6:30pm, the pool is divided in to 2.  The 2 lanes are dedicated to our kids COACHING class and Adult swimming lessons and the other half is for members who just want to swim.  The small pool is available for any families who want to play up till 7pm.  We appreciate we are taking half of the pool for swimming lessons  so we politely ask you respect that the main part is for swimmers and for any families with children to encourage your children to swim in the main part or play in the small pool.  If you would like any further information about our COACHING or adult swim courses, please do not hesitate to contact jarcher@york.roko.co.uk
