This month we are launching our Parklife Just Move challenge and rewards programme. In February we asking you to get out for a walk (whilst adhering to current guidelines). You can join this challenge at any point between 8th -28th February. We will be launching more challenges each month this academic year. 
 

Our first challenge 'Walk This Way' asks you to get out and walk throughout February, and upload a picture you’ve taken on your route. Log your walks and photo evidence with us between 8th-28th February. There are rewards and prizes to be won throughout this month. Keep an eye on our social media channels to get some added inspiration. 

Looking for photo inspiration? Try using the letters of the alphabet to guide you when taking your photos (e.g. 8th February = A, 9th February = B etc.)

UPDATE: WEDNESDAY 17th MARCH

 

We are pleased to announce that we are looking to reopen our centres when permitted. This means our expected date for outdoor bookings for organised groups will be the 29th March. We will then be opening our Falmer and Eastbourne Centres on Monday 12th April for gym use. Due to the restrictions we are unable to offer classes at this time. We are in the process of contacting all our members with further details of our reopening. The dates provided are assuming the government roadmap dates do not change.

 

We are looking forward to welcoming back our community as we are all keen to get active in our facilities again. We are now busy making preparations for our reopen. 

 

Facility hire:

We are now taking facility bookings that meet the National Governning Body Guidelines based on the current government roadmap. 

 

Memberships:

We are currently sending emails to all our current members with full details of our reopen. As always we will not charge you for the period we were closed due to the national lockdown. 

Annual student memberships: For those who are graduating you can request a refund. Annual memberships for students who aren’t graduating will have extensions applied to next academic year.

 

Student Clubs and Parklife:

Given the extended period our students have not been on campus or able to take part in student club activity we have made the decision to refund all student club (Panther) memberships (Bronze, Silver, Gold and BSMS). Parklife league entries (£15) will also be refunded. If you are yet to get a refund then please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We are hopeful to run activities should guidance permit this academic year but will advise nearer the time of a pricing structure for this once we have a better idea of the levels of service we can offer.  

 

These dates will obviously be subject to change as the current timetable is still reliant on government approval dependent on COVID rates nearer the time. We look forward to welcoming you again to our centre.

We currently do not have a date for our Cockcroft facility to open. Given its size and nature the current guidelines do not make it viable to open currently. Existing Cockcroft users should use our Falmer Sports Centre as an alternative. 

Updates will continue to be on this page.
