Sport and Active Life

Membership

With your membership you will have access to our state of the art facilities including: gyms, pool, sauna, spa, classes, courts, active life advisors, health checks, tailored fitness plans and more.

How do I become a member - is a little trickier as each category is different. Students can buy their membership online. Non-students must visit reception and fill out their registration form.

You can also arrange a time to come visit our facilities. Call Roger Bettles Sports Centre (0116 223 1500) or Danielle Brown Sport Centre (0116 252 3118) and a member of staff will be able to show you around and discuss the best membership option for you.
