Termly Clubs & NICAS

My booking was supposed to take place when you we’re closed; All bookings are secure. We promise to deliver your session as soon as we are able to.

My son/daughter was enrolled on a termly club, what will happen with the remaining weeks? Things will be slightly different to the last time we closed. We wont be doing the voucher system but rather will be transferring all bookings to the exact day and time in January 2021. This means for now you don’t need to do anything, once we have our re-opening confirmed we will be able to reschedule the classes and send out confirmation emails.

The current planned dates would be:

Part 1 Term – Monday 4th January 2021 to Sunday 14th February 2021
Half Term Break – Monday 15th February 2021 to Sunday 21st February 2021

Part 2 Re-Booking

There will be a new online booking for the second part of the term. Details will be released once we are open and part 1 has begun.

Part 2 Term – Monday 22th February 2021 to Thursday 1st April 2021

All of our facilities have a maximum capacity based on 3 metre social distancing (9sq metres per climber), giving plenty of room for everyone. As a result we will be leaving it up to you on whether you would like to wear a mask or not. Our staff will be wearing face coverings and visors as they work, this is due to the close working conditions behind our front desks and when floor walking.

Advice from The WHO recommends, not to wear a mask when exercising, and the UK government does not require the wearing of masks where other social distancing measures are in place which we will have.

However, White Spider recognise the advice is fast moving and will be quick to respond should the need change.

Climbing Facilities – Fully Open

  • All of our climbing facilities will be available, including all training area equipment

Changing Rooms, Lockers and Showers – Partially Open

  • Please arrive ready for your session to limit use of changing areas
  • Showers will not be available, with changing room space being prioritised for hand washing and toilet use
  • We will not be operating our ‘Key Exchange’ system for lockers. We do still have a limited number of coin operated and bring your own padlock lockers for any valaubles

In addition to managing capacity, we have introduced a number of walk-ways to help the flow of individuals around the climbing wall along with separate entrance and exits.

As we did in the lead up to closing, we will be maintaining a rigorous cleaning schedule of all high contact surfaces; with a staff member on permanent rotation going around and cleaning. We have also added additional hand washing and sanitisation stations.

We have put screens up and moved our Auto-Belays to allow for 2 metres social distancing.

Due to the nature of the climbing wall, we are unable to wash each hold after its use, so we ask that you wash your hands before and after your climb.
