    Opening times

    Opening and closing times are the same. Gym, swimming and fitness class timetables are different. 

    Check the individual centre for opening times and timetables: 

    Membership payments and discount cards

    Membership direct debit payments have been frozen since the centres shut in March.

    Payments will start again in September 2020 (on the same day of the month your payments usually come out). This means you will get a few weeks free of charge. 

    Membership costs will stay the same.

    If you have a discount card that you paid for before the centres closed, you will get an extension to cover the time you have lost.

    To join, see about memberships and discount cards.

    To leave, see how to cancel or freeze your membership
