Meet The Team
They say that an organization is only as good as the people within it, which is good for us because we do really believe we have some of the best people around. From the welcome on reception, to the gym and pool staff, we have a strong team that are focused on our members. They are approachable, friendly and always available to help. Many of them have been here for years and this shows their commitment to the Waterside. But don’t just take our word for it, visit the club today and they’ll happily show you around.
