A little about Places Leisure…
We’re a leading leisure and wellness partner delivering fitness, sport, health and wellbeing. We primarily work with Local Authorities to deliver the right kinds of health and physical activity outcomes that make a difference to the lives of people and their communities; it’s about more than operating facilities.
We’re a Social Enterprise, looking after over 100 leisure centres nationwide. We’re really pleased to be adding 5 more through partnering with Wokingham Borough Council. The next 5 years will see a £30m investment across the sites and we’re looking forward to getting to know you and your activity needs.
We hope the FAQs below begin to answer some of your questions.
When will the new centre open?
The opening day will be 1st May, with the new gym opening on the 5th May.
What can we do?
Arborfield Green Leisure Centre includes a gym, 2 studios, dedicated group cycling studio and 8 court sports hall. Outside you’ll see a brand-new state-of-the-art outdoor 3G football pitch, 2 netball pitches and 3 tennis courts, all floodlit. Not forgetting the free car parking.
What will the opening times be?
Elements of access are shared with the school, which means bookings and public use is restricted during term time.

It looks exciting, how do I join?
Please watch this space.
I love classes, when can I see timetables and when can I book?
Class timetables will be available by April 25th. Our monthly members have 14-day advance booking rights, our pay as you go members (we call it Places Membership) benefit from 7-day advanced booking rights. We’ll post a link to the timetable when available along with guidance on registering for on-line booking.
We will start with a smaller programme and this will build once we get to know your needs. Please talk to the fitness team around your needs.
What about juniors?
Active kids become active adults, so we are looking to give you more.
Junior memberships for 11 to 17-year olds will be £14.99, a reduction on the previous price in the other sites.
At PfP under 8’s swim for free – whilst Arborfield doesn’t have a pool we will introduce this at Loddon Valley & Carnival Pool (£5 annual registration fee applies). Simply ask at reception.
You can also book Arborfield Green Leisure Centre for football and multi sports parties.
Are sports clubs welcome?
Of course, community response so far to the facility has been fantastic. The sports centre will be home to a number of sports clubs from football, rugby, dancing, basketball, netball and frisbee. For enquiries relating to club, casual and party hire bookings please email firstname.lastname@example.org
What about the new centres?
Arborfield Green Leisure Centre isn’t the only new centre that we’ll open.
Ryeish Green Leisure Centre will be a new and later addition to your local choice. Opening late July 2018, you’ll see a new gym, studio, 4 court sports hall and an outside 3G pitch.
