Exciting News

We are delighted to announce that Judy Murray will be visiting the Club in October offering her knowledge to members and non-members of Kippie Lodge.

As part of Woman’s & Girls Sports week, Judy will be coaching a group of children and lady players in the Tennis Dome (invitation only) and then a Q&A event which is open to all members and non-members to book.

We have been waiting for some time to showcase our Tennis Dome which was erected in September 2020 and with Judy Murray visiting Aberdeen this will give us the perfect opportunity to do this to the wider community. Since the addition of the Dome Tennis at Kippie has gone from strength to strength especially with our younger members.

Judy Murray will be hosting a question and answer session at Kippie on Tuesday 26th October at 6.45 pm in the Dome. The ticket price is £10 which includes a glass of prosecco and £5 per child which includes a soft drink. All proceeds are donated to Maggie’s Cancer Care in Aberdeen.

Bookings are open to members and non-members. If you would like to book for this event please contact Reception at Kippie Lodge 01224 734747.

We hope that you will support your Club and come along to this event and spread the word! Thank you.

Complex News

Unfortunately, we have been having issues with outside dirt on the floor in the studios. As it’s been so wet, many members are coming in with their outdoor shoes to take part in their class. Now that we are getting into the winter months where there may be added sand on the pavements, can we ask that you now start taking indoor footwear for your class. Many thanks for your cooperation.

Buggy Beat:

A great new parent class is coming to Kippie as a taster session on Friday 5th November at 12.45pm – 1.30pm with Siobhan on the Lawn. A great workout whilst taking your little one along! Contact Reception for booking information.

Swimming Bookings

There seems to be some confusion with the booking of the pool during weekdays. It is essential that you book your session during busy periods for instance at Splash times. If you attend the early morning sessions there is no requirement to prebook however, we do request that you let Reception know upon your arrival to notify the lifeguards on duty with the final numbers for the session. Thank you.

Social Group

Kippie has an enthusiastic choir that meets on Thursday evenings at 7pm.

They are taking a break on Thursday 14th October but will be restarting on Thursday 21st October and will begin their Christmas Repertoire!

No auditions required, all voices welcome to join in a fun evening of singing and then have a coffee or something stronger after in the Bar

The cost is £6 per night

If you would like more information please contact kaydarbyshire@kippielodge.co.uk

Aches & Pains Aqua

A fun session sprinkled with movement science. Exercising in a pool provides relief with pain and stiffness in the joints.

It is a great class if you are recovering from surgery or got arthritis.

You will be working at your own ability but quickly will see progression as the weeks progress.

The class takes place each week on Thursdays at 13.50 (1.50pm).

Go on, head to the pool and give it a try!

LutFIYA Saitbayeva

Latfiya has been covering fitness classes throughout Aberdeen since 2015 and we are delighted that she is taking four classes here at Kippie.

"I am super excited to be joining the Kippie team. My love for fitness has made me expand my training skills to include the latest techniques including Pilates and Power Pilates with which I am certified to work with. My workouts are all about precise and controlled movements while maintaining proper alignment. If you have never attended a strength or kettlebell class please do not feel you cant take part."

"Despite on the skill or difficulty level of any class I teach it will be suitable for every level as there are modifications always available,  just like every instructor I work with the client’s needs, to encourage them and always include.I provide options whether you are a pure beginner or advanced."


If you would like to discuss any of Latfiya’s classes before taking part please do not hesitate to contact her via Reception.
