We are delighted to announce that Aspire Leisure Centre re-opened on Saturday 25th July. Initially we have only opened to Premier Members and things are a little different to usual to ensure our staff and customers are safe.

We automatically froze memberships while the facility was closed, however all memberships have now been unfrozen, unless you told us you did not wish to have your membership re-activated. From 1st October 2020, a £5.00 per month freeze fee will be collected from all frozen memberships.
