Cowles Stadium, Graham Condon, Jellie Park, Pioneer, Taiora QEII and Nga Puna Wai are now open.

Online bookings are required for group fitness, aqua classes and Tumbletimes to help manage numbers and avoid waiting times. You can book up to seven days ahead, with easy cancellation via your email notification.

For programmes such as Swimsmart, gymnastics and sport group bookings, the standard booking process applies.

The saunas and steam rooms are not available. Please bring your own towel, goggles, drink bottle and mat for group fitness classes.

Payments are going cashless - you can use your EFTPOS card and payWave to pay at our centres.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.
