How to book

To book onto a course or dropin session, you can do this in three ways:

  • Book and pay at the Sports Centre reception.
  • Book by telephone on 01206 873250 using your debit card or credit card.
  • Pay using our brand new online 'Connect' system with your e-mail and pin number.

If you are a non-member, you will need to either telephone or visit our Sports Centre reception. Our friendly Essex Sport team is on hand to guide you through the booking process.

For social sport sessions, you can turn up on the night to pay, however, we recommend signing up beforehand to avoid disappointment in not gaining a place.

Exception Dates

Please note that some weeks are unavailable for social sport sessions due to 'Essex Crown' events taking place on Tuesday Nights in the Sports Hall.
