Public, staff and associate annual memberships are for a period of 12 months from the date of purchase. Our annual memberships are fantastic value for money – with all your gym use, fitness classes and racket sports included in the price, it really is unbeatable. Extra fees apply for courses and group activities, however discounts are offered to members.
An alternative option is our off-peak membership, which has similar benefits to our annual membership but within certain time periods. Off-peak hours are between 7am and 4pm weekdays and 10am and 5pm at weekends (term time) as well as 8am and 8pm weekdays (vacation). Outside of your off-peak hours you will be charged at a non-members’ rate for use of the facilities.
We also offer an annual membership on a pay-as-you-go basis. After an initial joining membership fee you can partake in any activity on offer for a reduced rate.
Associate membership is available to Portsmouth University graduates, retired members of staff, direct staff & student family, ISAC & NUS card holders and 16-18 year old student card holders. Associate membership must be purchased at Spinnaker or St Pauls Sports Centre with proof of entitlement.
You can also take out a monthly full or off peak membership. You can get the same benefits as our longer memberships, but for just one month. There is no contract and no obligation: just a month’s membership.
