Returning to Next Gen Ryde!

Please remember, as you prepare your return to our venue, that all measures have been put in place by the NSW Government to assure all our safety, and our staff members are only doing their job as they follow these rules. Let’s all treat each other with respect and enjoy the freedoms we have all been waiting so long for!


Do I need to be vaccinated to enter the club?
To keep the community safe, and based on government guidelines, members will be required to have two doses of the COVID-19 vaccination to enter the club, and proof will be required upon entry.

Where can I find the verification of my double vaccination?
– COVID-19 digital certificate through your MyGov Account –
– Immunisation History Statement –

What happens once I show the club my vaccination Digital Certificate?
Once you’ve provided your vaccination Digital Certificate, we will update your membership card to reflect your vaccination status. Each time you enter the club simply swipe your membership card to allow the entrance gate to open for you. Without this, your access card will not work.

Will my vaccine information be kept secure?
Yes, your vaccine status will be used for no other purpose but to allow you to access the club.

Can you be sure that only vaccinated members are accessing the club?
Members will not be able to enter the club without having provided the certificate based on the government guidelines.

I’m getting vaccinated but I’m not fully vaccinated yet, what are my options?
If you have not had two doses of the COVID-19 vaccination, you have the option to put your membership on complimentary suspension until you are fully vaccinated, or up until 1 December 2021, whichever comes first.

If you choose this option you will need to click on the link below and complete your details before midnight Sunday 10 October 2021 to be eligible.

Unless you select this option, your first direct debit will take place on Tuesday 12 October 2021.

People aged from 12 to 16 who are not fully vaccinated must be with a fully vaccinated member of their household to enter the club. Children under 12 can come to club accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult.

What training can I do if I’m unvaccinated?
Until such time you are vaccinated, you can participate in our Online Group Fitness Classes, or our pre-recorded classes via Zoom. All are available through the Club Lounge.

Can I come to the club earlier than 1 Dec if I have a medical exemption from vaccination?
