The Drumsheugh Baths Club – Closure

It is with regret that, in line with recent Government’s advice and current industry practise, The Drumsheugh Baths Club will close from 9pm on Thursday 19th March until further notice.

This is a difficult decision to make but we are facing unprecedented circumstances. The staff and members of The Drumsheugh Baths Club are of utmost importance to us. We hope that you appreciate the efforts that the staff have gone to in keeping as much of the Club open and operating in these tricky times for as long as it was felt possible to do so.

We would like to reassure you that we will continue to monitor the situation. We hope to reopen as soon as we are advised that it is safe to do so, even if this is in a limited or staggered approach.

We appreciate this is a very difficult time for everyone. The Drumsheugh Baths Club is the oldest private members swimming club in Edinburgh. We have been through challenging times in the past and we hope to resume operations and return to business as usual as soon as we can. As a private member’s club, we exist for, and are led by members. We are in this together. We hope that with your support through these uncertain times we can keep the Club running as it has done since 1882.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience, understanding and loyalty in such unique circumstances.

The Board

17th March 2020 

The welfare of our members and staff is of utmost importance to The Drumsheugh Baths Club.

Following recent developments, classes held at the Club are cancelled until further notice.

The sauna, steam room and hot tub will be closed.

We are encouraging everyone to take measures to protect themselves. We ask everyone entering the Club to wash their hands with soap and warm water in the upstairs toilet before using any facilities

We would also ask that all members using the gym clean each piece of equipment before and after use, weights (dumbbells, kettlebells, weights benches etc) as well as the cardio machines . We will provide extra cleaning equipment in the gym to enable you to clean the equipment after each stage of your workout.

We will continue to follow Government advice and to keep you updated of any further developments.

Thank you for your cooperation at this difficult time.
