Sports and activity charges - pay monthly – standard

These are our standard charges for sports and activities paid for on a monthly basis: 

Our pay monthly options make it easier and cheaper for you to use our leisure facilities. For example, if you are an adult who swims twice a week and uses a fitness room once a week and you pay each time you visit, it will cost you around £60 a month. 

With an Active Aberdeenshire membership, you can do the same activities and more for just £28.90 a month.

By paying a monthly fee, which can be through direct debit or by paying as you go, you will also get faster admittance to our facilities. We will give you a National Entitlement Card which will be programmed with details of your monthly membership and you’ll then be able to ‘swipe’ this at any participating facility and get free access.

Our pay monthly members can also make online bookings of participating council facilities.

Direct debit options

An Active Aberdeenshire membership gives you free access to swimming, fitness rooms, exercise classes, using our sports halls and badminton courts, playing games like squash and most children’s activities.

It does not cover children’s swimming lessons, privately-run exercise classes or children’s activities or the Huntly Nordic Ski Centre or Alford Dry Ski slope.

Our joint memberships are available to any two people living together in the same household, such as flatmates, siblings and couples.
