Every stretch, stroke and sprint at Better is not just better for you – it’s better for everyone.

Unlike other leisure centres, we’re not about paying out big CEO bonuses, trapping you into long contracts or getting you to part with big chunks of your student loan. Plus our surplus funds are reinvested into better facilities and services for the whole community.

So, there’s never been a better time to take advantage of our Student membership. It’s flexible, too – there’s no need to pay over the holidays because you can pause and pick up your membership as you please.

If your gym can’t say the same – why not make the switch?
