The first instalment allows usage up to the 31 January, the second instalment allows usage until the 31 August.

What happens if I forget to pay?

You won’t be allowed access into the facilities, but don’t worry you will be sent email reminders so this won’t happen.

Gold membership offers access to the fitness suite throughout our opening hours. Silver membership offers access to the fitness suite weekdays between 7am to 9am and 2pm to 4pm; Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays between 10am to 12pm. In addition, Gold and Silver members enjoy a wide range of facilities.

If you forget your card we operate a three strikes policy; the third time you forget your card you will be refused entry.

You will need to complete a Kent Sport orientation, which incorporates your fitness suite induction, before using the facilities. Please watch the Kent Sport orientation video.

Can I bring a guest?

Gold and Silver members may bring a guest to attend an activity with them for just £6 - a fantastic opportunity to try the array of facilities on offer before taking a membership.
