Our swimming pools at the Hydro in Harrogate, Nidderdale Pool and Leisure Centre are open for lane swimming and family sessions. Our Brimhams fitness centres at The Hydro, Nidderdale Pool and Leisure Centre and Ripon Leisure Centre are also open to members only.

To swim, or to use the gym, you must pre-book in advance.

We are now accepting pre-bookings for swimming at Ripon Spa Baths which we hope to reopen on Friday 14 May.

Everybody aged 12 years old and over, who enters any of our leisure centres, or swimming pools, will need to wear a face covering in the communal areas.

Sign up

Our memberships are collected via direct debit on the 1st of each month, or via three months' advance payment. Please call in and complete the enrolment forms and direct debit mandate.

We don't charge a joining fee. The only fee you'll need to pay is a pre-payment to cover the membership fee from the day you enrol to the date of the first collection of your direct debit.

We'll then issue you a membership swipe card and you're ready to go.

You should read our terms and conditions

We need one month's notice to cancel your direct debit by completing one of our cancellation forms. You'll need to do this at the gym as we're unable to post these to you.
