Winter Pool Session at Brigg!

Our winter pool sessions start on Saturday 8th October and we are taking bookings from next week, Tuesday 6th September and Thursday 8th September.

Sessions are at 5:30 pm, 6:20 pm and 7:10 pm and cost £5 per person.

Demand is expected to be high, so to be as fair as possible:

  • We are initially saving half the available pool slots for our Tuesday night session and the other half for our Thursday night session.

  • Pool sessions can only be booked in person at the river, no phone bookings will be accepted.

  • We are taking bookings for a calendar month of sessions and payment must be made for the full month when reserving your place. As we are not starting until the 8th October, the cost for October will be 4 x £5 = £20 per person

  • We must ensure we cover our pool costs so there are no refunds if you miss a week, unless we can resell your placeIf you think you will miss a week, please let the bookings officer know and he will try to resell your place. Please do not resell it yourself as we will have a reserve list of people wanting to paddle.

  • If we can’t fit you in for October, you will get a place in November.

Brigg Pool to Close for six weeks

North Lincolnshire Council have announced that the Ancholme Leisure Centre pool in Brigg will close for six weeks from 18th November 2013 to 1st January 2014.

As such we have regrettably had to cancel the last November pool session and the December sessions. Anyone who has booked on the November sessions will get a £5 refund for the missing week. Anyone booked on the December sessions will have the choice to move their booking to January. Please call in at the pool during any of the remaining Saturday pool sessions to confirm your January booking and claim your refund.

During this closure we hope to be able to offer:

Two “come-and-try-it” Canoe Polo sessions at Riddings pool. These will be at lunch time. Exact times and details to be confirmed soon.

We are also proposing Saturday afternoon flat water river trips during the closure period, not necessarily on the Ancholme, but  numbers will be limited due to boat availability.

Keep checking our website, Facebook page and club notice board for the latest information.
