You will only require a band should you be using any of the following facilities in The Sports Centre:
- Swimming Pool
- Health Suite (sauna and steam room)
- Fitness Suite
Your band can also be used to access the lockers, however should you not need a band for access control (i.e. for use of any of the above) we will still retain a number of red bands at reception for locker use which are to be returned to the desk after use.
Wristbands will be issued from Reception upon your first visit. When you collect your band you will be required to have your photograph taken for your account, should you not already have one on our system, and your details checked to ensure they are current.
Your initial band will be issued free of charge as part of your membership. Fees for replacement lost bands will be charged at £5 per band and a charge of £1 for entry to facilities should you forget to bring your band. Please note these charges are nonrefundable.
Each membership category will be assigned a coloured band:
Premier peak: Black
Premier off peak (including Active Edge): Grey
Standard peak: Blue
Standard off peak: Yellow
Team EH: Green
Get Active (including swim lessons): Orange
If you upgrade or downgrade your membership you will be required to produce your original band at Reception which will be swapped free of charge for the appropriate membership coloured band. If the band cannot be produced then you will be charged £5 for a replacement band.
There are access control readers placed outside the main doors of the Swimming Pool and Health Suite and on the door of the Dance Studio and Fitness Suite.
ALL members are required to register their visits on the door access control points for these facilities by holding your band against the appropriate reader. Once done the access light on the access control point will turn green. Should the access light turn red then your visit has not been registered and you are required to report to Reception who will investigate the access issue. Please do not hold the door open for other users or prop doors open. The swimming pool door will remain open however all other doors will be manual opening.
Lockers can be accessed with all membership wristbands. To lock a locker the wristband is to be placed on the locker button and pressed. The button will stay pressed in and lock the locker. To unlock the locker press the wristband on the locker button which will then come back out.
If you forget which locker your wristband is assigned to then you can use the readers placed around the Centre mounted on the walls by placing your wristband on the reader icon on the box and the locker number will then be displayed on the display.
