Lock-down & Ongoing Memberships/Vouchers

Sadly we are closed during the COVID-19 pandemic lock-down period. There are plenty of training ideas online, we will be adding a few ourselves, to  to keep your fitness up. We look forward to the time when we are all able to get out and enjoy each other’s company again.
We have had a lot of enquiries asking us what is happening with memberships and vouchers, during the lock-down;

– All memberships have been put on hold and will be re-activated when we are finally open. 

– For the Hoppers term pass, we will discount the next term, by the number of weeks that are outstanding. 

– For vouchers that were due to expire on April 1st. We will allow three weeks from when we open for them to be used. At this stage we cannot offer any refunds.

We hope your time in lock-down goes relatively smoothly and quickly. We look forward to seeing you all back at Vertical Adventures, when the lock-down is lifted.

Stay safe.
