iScuba app technical issues

Recent changes made by Google/Android led to some compatibility issues for iScuba users running the latest version of Android. A new version of iScuba has now been released to the Google Play Store. 
For those you have experienced compatibility issues, please uninstall and re-install the app. 

Re-installing the app, as opposed to updating it, will download the correct version based on the customer requiring 32 or 64 bit which Google Play now supports.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

You will now be able to book a swim or gym session, exercise class or Badminton/Table Tennis courts* up to 7 days in advance. You will also be able to cancel a booking up to one hour before without charge. (*same household).

In order to protect yourselves and our team we are operating a temporary timetable to comply with government guidance. This includes:

  • Face coverings must be worn by everyone over the age of 12 who is not taking part in an activity. This includes your arrival and departure from an activity.
  • Social distancing measures. We have removed furniture to discourage people from remaining in the centre longer than necessary. The space also allows for a queuing system where people can maintain a gap of up to 2m. The gym equipment has been moved to allow for more space and in the studio work out spots are marked on the floor.
  • Cleaning Regimes. We have re-written and increased the frequency of our cleaning regimes to ensure the health and safety of all our users and employees.
  • Hand Washing stations have been set up around the centre to enable users to keep their hands clean whilst maintaining social distancing.
  • Toilets. We now have separate ‘wet-side’ and dry-side’ toilets so that users can maintain social distancing.
  • Changing. The changing rooms will only be available for swimmers but there will be no access to the showers for now. All users are advised to arrive for the pool ‘ready to go’ and to shower at home.
  • Lockers. We now have separate ‘wet-side’ and dry-side’ lockers so that users can maintain social distancing in the lobby and corridor and not take their belongings up to the gym.
  • Session Times. We have created 3 session times per hour for all our activities. This should help reduce the number of people in the centre at any one time and allow those in the centre to maintain social distancing and enjoy their activity.
  • Adult Indoor Team Sport. including badminton, table tennis, football and basketball. Participants can only play within their household or support bubble.
  • Group Exercise Classes. No mixing between participants. Socially distanced, with each person having their own space.
