Pay and Go is available for classes, swimming lessons, squash, indoor sports, outdoor sports and Try A Sport. This gives you the ability to add activities to your workout on an ad hoc basis if you’re not an Inclusive member or to access opportunities without being a member of Sport & Fitness.

Gym and swimming is not currently available on Pay and Go.

Sport & Fitness has so many ways to keep fit and have fun whilst being active that we want you to have the flexibility to try everything!

Never get bored with over 150 classes per week…

You can buy just one class so why not give it a spin? However, with so much choice on offer, you’ll see why there’s the option to buy 60 at a time. You can book classes 7 days in advance so you can plan ahead and create an inspirational workout routine!
