Saturday 25 July 2020

Dear All

We are so pleased to inform you that after many weeks in lockdown, The Junction Sports & Leisure Centre can finally re-open its doors from Saturday 25 July 2020.

As I’m sure you can appreciate, there are numerous changes/restrictions within the Centre that have been introduced, in accordance with the government guidelines, for everyone’s safety.  

During lockdown the YMCA team have been very busy installing COVID-19 safety measures throughout the Centre:

  • Glass screens installed at Reception 
  • Gymnasium layout adapted in line with the current social distancing measures
  • Filter modifications to Gym/Fitness Studio Air Conditioning
  • Appropriate signage displayed throughout the Centre
  • Additional hand sanitiser units installed throughout the Centre
  • Additional anti-bacterial sprays placed throughout the Gym/Fitness Studio
  • Increased fresh air flows in designated areas

Facilities/services to remain closed until further notice:

  • Spinning Studio
  • Creche 
  • Kidz Kingdom (Soft-Play)
  • Saunas/Steam Room
  • Café/Licensed Bar

The government guidelines require us to limit the number of people in each area at one time, with this in mind we will be introducing an online booking system for the Gymnasium, Swimming Pool and Fitness Classes.  This on-line system is currently being finalised but will be ready in time for all Members to use upon reopening, further instruction will follow shortly.   

This system will require all Members to create an online account in advance, to avoid any delays to your booking journey.  This can be completed by going to https://thejunction.thejunctionbroadstone.co.uk/pub/RegisterOnline.aspx

Your postcode and email address will need to match the information currently held on our database.  If you encounter any issues, please email Karen Brixey at kbrixey@thejunctionbroadstone.co.uk, Karen will be more than happy to assist.

All Members will be reinstated from Saturday 25 July 2020, each membership will be adjusted accordingly.  If you would like your membership to remain on hold for the time being, please contact Karen using the above email address to make the necessary system amendments. 

If you have any further questions regarding the reopening, please do not hesitate to contact me at martin.stockley@ymcabournemouth.org.uk.

We are all looking forward to welcoming each and every Member back to The Junction and we sincerely thank you for your continued support throughout this unprecedented/difficult time….it is invaluable for The Junction, and for YMCA Bournemouth, Poole & Christchurch.
