At Better, we realise everyone’s different and we’re committed to providing a wide range of activities for all. Whatever your age or ability our lessons and courses are a great way to learn new skills and have fun. Our leisure centres across London, the South East, the South West, the Thames Corridor, Rugby, York and Manchester offer everything from gymnastics and football, to drama and music, so there’s never been a better time to have a go.

We believe in monitoring our pupils on an on-going basis. This enables pupils to move through our courses at their own pace. We realise everyone learns at a difference pace and since introducing this methodology we have seen a great increase in pupil development.

We work in partnership with National Governing Bodies and employ industry experts to deliver a wide variety of lessons and courses. Our affordable, inclusive programmes are open to all ages and abilities. With easy payment options there has never been a better time to sign up!

Plus, many of our centres run courses throughout the holidays to keep children active and entertained. Spaces can be booked here.
