Buddy up this April at our Leisure Centres!

If you are a paying Activo member you can bring a friend or family member to enjoy a class, swim or activity for free each Wednesday during April.

We advise that you pre-book popular classes and if your friend has not used our gym facilities before they will need to book an induction before getting started.

It's that easy - get fit with your friends this Spring!

Newark Aquathlon

Come and have a go at Go Tri's new Aquathlon at the Grove Leisure Centre on Sunday 26 April.

For more detail and to register your interest visit Go Tri.

Cancellation of bookings

In order to maximise the number of spaces available for classes and activities we operate a cancellation process. If you cancel a class or activity giving the appropriate notice, there will be no charge.

You are required to cancel bookings by 10am by telephone or online for all those activities taking place that day from 10am onwards.

Please do let us know about cancellations as this will enable us to try to re-let the booking - and 99% of the time we can!

Of course we will not charge customers who fall ill unexpectedly or if they have a valid reason for late cancellation but we may ask you to write to the leisure centre’s facilities manager to confirm this.
