Sports and activity charges - standard prices

These are our standard charges for sports, activities and facilities hire:

These standard charges are for adults who do not qualify for benefit-related concessions.

Members of national sports squads receive 50 percent off our standard prices and members of international sports squads receive 70 percent off.

Instead of paying per visit, it could be better value for you to take out one of our monthly memberships.

Individually priced activities

Personal trainers carrying out sessions with clients in our facilities will be charged double the standard rate with the client incurring the usual standard price.
