At Sport Liverpool we offer so much more than just flexible, competitive membership fees. We tailor our facilities, classes, advice and services to our members, so whether joining as part of a team, a class, or simply meeting your own fitness goals we can offer you real support.


We understand that looking after your fitness can not only help you look good, but make you feel great too. Feeling fit and healthy can help with managing the stresses and strains of everyday life, and lead to improved performance at work, or even better academic results. So our approach to wellbeing is not just about sport, it’s about helping you develop a mind-set, a real work life balance that enables you to get to where you want to be.


Sport is and should be fun, whether you are taking part or spectating. As well as offering you the chance to join in and compete at all levels, our Athletics Union also means you can really get behind team Liverpool too. There’s a real community feel to our facilities and lots of opportunities to socialise and make new friends.
