Dear members

We are delighted to announce that from Monday the 1st of November onwards we will be removing the booking system for Club Vitae Sligo, so you will not have to book your pool or gym session in advance any more.

We will also be re-opening our changing rooms and showers from Monday the 1st November

Plus we will be re-opening our sauna, steam room and jacuzzi as soon as possible during the week commencing the 1st of November

Please note that while this is great news indeed, it will mean changes in certain areas of the club, and we will still need your help to ensure we can operate safely. So to outline a few of the changes –


  • Once reopened, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi will have a maximum capacity of 3 persons at any one time. This is to maintain social distancing and keep you safe. Sanitizing of these areas and all other areas of the club will take place regularly throughout the day


  • Changing rooms and showers will be available to all users, but we ask that if you don’t absolutely need to use these facilities, to please avoid as it reduces contact points and maintains social distancing.


  • As mentioned, advance bookings will not be required for pool or gym from November the 1st However this means it may be busier at certain times in these areas. With that in mind, if numbers get too high in any area we may have to restrict access for a short period until congestion reduces.


  • Facemasks are still required in public areas as much as possible – ie. on the way in and out of the club, or at reception – but not while training in the gym.


  • Hand washing/hygiene and social distancing are still asked of everyone.


  • Fitness classes have not resumed as yet but we will notify everyone as soon as this is possible.


  • To use the gym or studio you must show a valid covid cert (vaccination or recovery) and ID on arrival at the club.


  • You do not need to show a covid cert if just using the pool


  • A covid cert must be shown if you intend to use the sauna, steam room and jacuzzi.


  • Children under 18 who are accompanied do not need to show a covid cert.


  • Unaccompanied children under the age of 18 need to show a covid cert and ID.

Please bear in mind we are still operating within a pandemic and we are doing all we can to offer our full facilities while keeping everyone safe.

Thank you for you co-operation, and we look forward to welcoming you to enjoy our facilities in the coming weeks and months.

Best regards,

Club Vitae Team
