Maties Gymnasium boasts new men’s changing rooms

It is a new year, and Maties Gymnasium is welcoming you back with brand new men’s changerooms. Since 15 February, the changing rooms have reopened and boast a brand-new look.

Sauna’s open again

More good news is that the men’s and ladies’ saunas can now be used again, although limited due to COVID-19 protocols still in place.

Bookings are still mandatory.

Please remember that bookings at both our Tygerberg and Stellenbosch gymnasiums are still mandatory until further notice. That way, we can help keep everyone safe. For bookings, click here:
