Greenbank Gym Opening on a Sunday

Greenbank Sports Academy will be doing a trial opening on a Sunday over the next three weekends (14.05.2023, 21.05.2023, 28.05.2023) — Opening from 11 am till 4 pm. We know how much customers have wanted this!
During the initial trial period, as Greenbank is extremely busy with events on weekends, the lockers, changing rooms and showers will not be in use. However, there will always be a member of staff on site you can speak to regarding this. Please also note that this would mean taking bags in the GYM with you, and we would appreciate keeping these out of the way to prevent any trip hazards.
Please sign in and out at the reception as usual.
We thank you in your understanding in this matter, and are open to any and all feedback.
 The Greenbank Team.

Activity Price Updates – January 2023

To our Greenbank customers and members,

Thank you for coming back to see us in 2023!  It’s been a strange couple of years. We’ve appreciated your support, and we will continue to provide you with the best service, a place to feel welcome and a safe space to stay active in the new year.

However, the costs associated with running our centre  have increased in the last 12 months. We’ve always been proud to offer quality health and wellbeing experiences at an affordable price for everyone in our community, and we will continue to do so in 2023.

Unfortunately, though, we’re having to make the difficult decision to increase a number of our fees and charges for the first time in 4 years, and this will come into effect from January 9th 2023.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused here. The last thing we want to do is increase prices, especially at a time when everyone is feeling pressure financially. 

Please rest assured, though, that whether you’re visiting us for a sports hall activity session or heading into the gym, we will always make every effort to ensure that you enjoy every minute you spend with us.

Please see below updated price list of gym and sportshall hire rates.
