new owners kya sands gym?

Postby paul.l » Wed Apr 18, 2007 8:56 am

Hi All
A few weeks ago I was told the Kya Sands Gym had a new owner who was going to be fixing the place up. Anyone have any news or contact details of the new owner?

It would be great if that was the case - we really do have a lack of gyms in the area. Where did you hear this news?

This info was from the student who was manning the place when we went there one night. Supposedly they are going to build a bouldering cave, a weight training area and of course replace the ropes (if that is what you can call the death traps that were still left on a few of the walls) and fix up the walls. With winter coming , and the rain we are having, a nice place to go in the evenings would be a boon.

I actually thought the place had closed down totally after the debacle with the bloke who took a fall there. I also see there web site is not working and when I tried to call there was no answer?

To be honest, the last time I was at the gym was before they moved to the new premises.

So, lets hope some new ownership and a revamp happens!
