The Rede Tyne Coquet Sports & Leisure Centre will be holding its AGM on Monday 28th September 2020 at 7:30pm. Due to the ongoing Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic this year’s meeting will be held via Zoom. If you wish to attend, please email Kevin Appleby on email@example.com to register and obtain a link to the meeting.
We are now in a position to start offering exercise classes again at RTC, Initially there will be two classes per week which will be led by Gill Chilvers. A mixed ability class will take place on Wednesday evenings at 7pm and will feature a warm up to music, a series of exercises for exercising and toning the whole body, followed by cool down and gentle stretches. The class on Monday mornings at 10am is a low impact class following a similar pattern.
Numbers are limited to 8 per session and each participant will be allocated a specific area in which to exercise to ensure social distancing. This means that you must book a place in advance each week. The cost for each session is £5, with all proceeds going direct to RTC. If you wish to book a space, please contact Gill Chilvers on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following the advice from England Netball around the Coronavirus (COVID-19) , the organisers at Otterburn Netball have taken the decision to cancel the netball sessions at the RTC until further notice.
Other activities continue as usual for the time being. However, the situation is constantly changing and we will advise of changes as they occur.
Otterburn Gym remains open.
