Access control

There are access control readers placed outside the main doors of the Swimming Pool and Health Suite and on the door of the Dance Studio and Fitness Suite.

ALL members are required to register their visits on the door access control points for these facilities by holding your band against the appropriate reader. Once done the access light on the access control point will turn green. Should the access light turn red then your visit has not been registered and you are required to report to Reception who will investigate the access issue. Please do not hold the door open for other users or prop doors open. The swimming pool door will remain open however all other doors will be manual opening.


Lockers can be accessed with all membership wristbands. To lock a locker the wristband is to be placed on the locker button and pressed. The button will stay pressed in and lock the locker. To unlock the locker press the wristband on the locker button which will then come back out.

If you forget which locker your wristband is assigned to then you can use the readers placed around the Centre mounted on the walls by placing your wristband on the reader icon on the box and the locker number will then be displayed on the display.
