Payment Options

We believe that being fit and healthy should not be a luxury but accessible to all. Our pricing system therefore ensures that the facilities are affordable and available to all income groups and with discounts for advance payments the memberships become even better value for money. In addition, you can know that your money is not disappearing into a huge private leisure corporation but that it will help subsidise the use of the facilities by special needs groups, and to subsidise the wider welfare work of the YMCA.


  • Per session basis : £4.00
  • Monthly option: £20.00
  • Direct debit: £15.00 per month (12 months)
    • £17.50 per month (6 months)
  • Upfront payment – 12 months £150.00
    • 6 months £90.00
