COVID-19 | Sport Brighton Service Updates

 

Following the most recent government advice around social distancing the University of Brighton has taken the difficult decision to close its sports centres across all sites from Wednesday 18th March. The health of our users is of paramount importance to us. We are currently working through the large number of emails that are coming in but are responding and actioning requests as soon as possible. 

Further updates relating to our services can be found here along with Frequently Asked Questions. We will endeavour to keep this page up to date with the latest information as we know it.

 

Weekly Online Class Schedule

Sport Brighton are using our instructor network to give you free online classes via Facebook Live. By each Monday we will post the week's schedule of classes for you to take part in. Please note that our instructors are using the technology they have to hand so we can't guarantee high definition quality but hopefully it will give you a chance to see some familiar faces and a chance to experience some of your favourite Sport Brighton classes in your own home. You should be able to view a class even without having a Facebook account. Just click on the link below when a class is live. We will start our live stream ten minutes before the class with a countdown so you can make sure you are set up and ready to go at the start time. If you join late then you can rewind the class to the start. Please note the latest you will be able to start the class is thirty minutes after the start time. Joining later and restarting the class may result in the class cutting off before you get to the end. Classes are free and you don't need to book. Due to the remote nature of our work at the moment classes are subject to change. If a class you are expecting has not started then check back here for updates. If you have problems viewing the live stream we suggest trying a different web browser (Firefox, Chrome etc.).

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How long are you closed for?

Due to the nature of the situation we do not know when we will be reopening our centres. We will be following official advice and will notify all of an intended date for reopening on this page and on our social media channels. We will also contact regular hirers once we have a date for reopening.

 

I’m a gym member, what happens now?

Direct Debit (monthly) payments will be adjusted automatically so you will not pay for any periods we are closed. Any closure that affects a month already paid will have future payments adjusted to recoup pro-rata amounts.

Annual memberships will have expiry dates extended accordingly once facilities reopen.

Ten cards will have an extended validity period.
