Sport Brighton are excited to announce further details of it's newest facility located on Lewes Road in Moulsecoomb, Brighton. The facility will features a new gym floorspace, studio and changing facilities. The gym is now open. Find out more information below.

 

 

OPENING DATE

We opened at Midday on Monday 12th September. To ensure we can provide the best possible service we are lanching the facility in two phases. Phase 1 will ensure students and staff can be onboarded at the start of the new academic year. Phase 2 will see a wider community membership offer becoming available.

 

Phase 1: Monday 12th September; Midday opening | UoB Staff & Students

It is anticipated that we will open to University of Brighton students and staff members from Monday 12th September. Non-members including those from the wider local community will be able to book classes with us.

Bookings for external non-members can be made 48 hours in advance of the class and is subject to availability. During this period we will assess the popularity of classes and will update the programme where needed. Start of term classes are always busier as students form their routines.

 

Phase 2: 1st November 2022 | Associate Members

Access to purchase memberships will be opened up to the Associate Member category. This includes:

University of Brighton student or staff partners/ University of Brighton graduate or graduate partner/ Student in HE or FE/ NHS/ Emergency Services & corporate partners. You can purchase this from our App or website. Validation that you fulfil the Associate criteria will be required when you activate your membership on site. Those community members that joined our initial email mailing list will also be invited to take out membership. 

 

Phase 3: 21st November 2022 | Community Members

Community membership which is open to all will become available via a waiting list. We will review the release of new community memberships on a monthly basis. To sign up to the waiting list please complete the form here. We are opening memberships in this way to enable us to control membership numbers to ensure the gym is not oversubscribed and therefore the customer experience isn’t compromised. We anticipate a good number of community memberships being available from the 21st November. We will contact those on the waiting list when there is availability and will invite those selected to take out membership. If membership is not taken out within 2 weeks of receiving the ‘invitation to join’ email then you will need to complete another form to join the waiting list again to gain membership access in the future. To be considered in the first release of community memberships please join the waiting list before the 16th November. You will then be contacted between the 17th and 20th November with details of how to join.
