Disruptions ahead – new equipment at the RecCentre installing now!

The Rec&Sport team are excited – we’ve got a whole lot of new gym equipment arriving in the next few weeks at the RecCentre, for your exercising pleasure!  

We did our best to get the install for the holidays, but sadly, the shipping process didn’t play ball.  So, the installation process has started, with the bulk of the work being done in Week 1 of Semester Two.  What does this mean for you?

  • Some equipment will be dismantled and ‘out of order’ whilst we ready it for removal/sale or shift to another gym space 
  • New equipment will be put together, but still ‘out of order’ whilst we get it bolted to the floor for safety. 
  • Some equipment will be ‘stored’ in the corridors, as we get it ready (we genuinely don’t have anywhere else to put it!).   

So, if you see an ‘out of order’ sign, please don’t use it yet.  As soon as it is safe to use, those OOS signs will be taken down. 

  • We’re doing our best to keep the gym fully open during this time. As you can imagine, there will be times we’ll have no choice but to close down some areas. So, please follow the direction of staff at all times, for your safety and ours.  

For a full list of the equipment comings and goings, see the news section of our website.

And most of all, thank you for your patience and co-operation during this time – we look forward to playing on the new kit!
