Save £25 on all memberships this April

Join now and pay no joining fee…


We can’t wait to reopen our centres and we know how much people have missed their swimming, gym and exercise classes.

This April, we are offering NO JOINING FEE all our memberships, saving £25.

It’s been a long hard year and many people have not had the room, mental capacity or motivation to workout at home. But with the reopening of leisure (hopefully for good!), now is the time to commit to getting active again.

Exercise not only makes you feel great, it makes you fitter, mentally stronger, builds your immune system and helps you fight long term illnesses. Exercise really is medicine.

To take advantage of this great offer, all you need to do is add the code SPRING21 at the checkout when buying your membership online.

Our Covid Promise

Our promise to you during these turbulent times, is that if our centres need to close again or there is another national lockdown, we will instantly freeze your membership for the time we are closed and if you are an annual member, any closed months will be added to the end of your membership. You can be confident that you will only pay membership fees when we are open.

What’s on?


Back to normality?

By mid-June, Government plans should mean that most indoor activities, including indoor adult group sports, exercise classes and hospitality, will reopen. The government will also allow some larger performances in indoor venues and events of up to 30 people, such as children’s parties, weddings, receptions and funeral wakes.

Our services and venues offer a range of options that are ideal for a variety of events and functions. Whether you’re looking for something in the summer months or later in the autumn or winter, we can help. Everything we do is in-line with the highest health and safety guidance and Government rules.

On 21st June we also hope to fully open The Boathouse with no restrictions.

Your safety is our priority…
