Gym Closure Saturday 20 April

Please note that the gym at the RTC will be closed all day on Saturday 20 April 2019 to allow for the completion of plastering of the ceiling following work in the loft space. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Possible weekday opening of Sports Centre

We are currently considering opening the Sports Centre one day a week (probably a Wednesday) so that people can use the sports hall facilities – for example for a game of badminton, table tennis or short tennis – or just have a cup of coffee or tea and a chat.  BUT – to do this we need to ‘man’ (or indeed ‘woman’) the place with volunteers – to make the coffee, take money for court hire and generally be a reference point for visitors.  So if you could spare a couple of hours on a Wednesday to take a shift on the volunteer rota please email Gill Chilvers on

Customer satisfaction survey

Can you spare us a couple of minutes to complete our (very short) customer satisfaction survey?  Tell us how you feel about the Centre and what you’d like us to change – and help us demonstrate to our funders that supporting the Centre is worthwhile.  Follow the link below.


Sport and Exercise Ideas?

Do you have ideas for sport and exercise activities you’d like to see happening at the RTC?  Could you help us to get your ideas up and running?  Maybe you go to a class that you love and you think your instructor might be prepared to come out to Otterburn?  Perhaps your kids would like to do martial arts and you’d be prepared to do some research to try and get a class running at the RTC?  Maybe you love doing Zumba and you’d like to train as an instructor?  Or you used to play badminton and would like to give it a go again?  We’d love to hear from anyone with an idea to suggest and a bit of time to help make it happen.  As a charity, we can potentially apply for funding for equipment or training or even to subsidise the cost of a coach or instructor.  Email Gill Chilvers on
