What is 'track and trace' or contact tracing?

To allow our studios to return to normal operation, we are asking all bookers to share the name and phone number of everyone who will be at the session.  You can add them when booking, or add afterwards via your account page.

If you test positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) or have had close contact with someone who has tested positive, this precaution allows us to share details with your country’s health programme. Details will only be used for this purpose and will be deleted 21 days after the date of booking.

Please note, this will also apply to students using BIMM designated rooms.

If you have any further questions, please contact email us at support@pirate.com

How can I help keep myself and others safe?

You must adhere to government guidelines on physical distancing, staying two metres apart at all times. We'll be providing antibacterial spray and paper towels at the studio, for use on-site (we know it may be tempting to take them with you, but removing these will result in a fine).

Before and after your session, please spray sanitiser onto the paper towel — and use it to wipe down any equipment or surfaces you come into contact with.

Of course, the best advice is to stay at home if you feel unwell.

What sort of cleaning are you doing?

Your safety and wellbeing is our highest priority – we wouldn’t do anything to put this at risk. All studios are cleaned and sanitised as often as possible, but it’s still crucial for you to wipe down and sanitise the kit at the beginning and end of each session. We provide antibacterial spray and paper towels at every site.

What times will the studios be open?

We'll keep the latest information on this page. Keep checking back to see when your local studio is open, and look to the booking calendar for availability. 

What is your cancellation policy?

If you've made a booking with us but have any symptoms (however mild), we'd ask that you please refrain from taking your booking. 

If your booking is more than 12 hours away, you can easily cancel or move your booking in your account by going to 'My Bookings' and clicking on the relevant session.

If your booking is less than 12 hours away refunds are available or we can shift your booking to a later date — get in touch via Live Chat and we'll be happy to help. 

I’ve been feeling unwell or diagnosed since my visit to Pirate Studios

Please contact our support team as a matter of urgency via Live Chat, email or phone.
