Fitness is more fun with friends

Who is Places Leisure?

Places Leisure is one of the UK’s leading leisure operators.

We’re passionate about helping you stay physically active and emotionally engaged in fitness, sport and wellbeing. Our mission is to put our heart and soul into ‘creating active places and healthy people’ - it’s about creating a place for everyone. 

As a social enterprise, we use our efforts and funds to continually develop the quality of service and facilities we offer and to widen the opportunities for everyone.

I'm a member already - how do referrals work?

We think fitness is more fun with your friends, so if you're an existing member, recommend a friend and we'll add 1 free month onto the end of your current membership when they join*. The friend you're referring will need to provide your name upon sign up to ensure your referral can be recorded.

*Terms and conditions apply.
