After extensive work to put measures in place to ensure that the Fitness Suites at the Sports Centre, St Johns Campus & the McClelland Centre, City Campus are as low risk as possible from Covid-19 transmission, we would like to announce that the gyms are now open for University of Worcester students & staff to use.

From the 1st November, staff membership will be reinstated for those members of staff that had gym membership prior to the gym closures. If you wish to use the facilities, then simply download & complete the update membership form using the link below & email it to wellbeing@worc.ac.uk.

Once it has been processed, you’ll receive an email to confirm that you have been cleared to exercise & that your membership has been reinstated. You’ll then need to contact either the Sports Centre or the McClelland Centre to book a session. For your safety & that of other gym users, all gym use must now be book in advance. Unfortunately, no walk ins will be permitted!

When you contact either centre, they will email you a timetable with 1hr time slots that are available. When you have selected your slot, simply contact the centres to request it. You will receive an email to confirm your booking. If the slot you wish to reserve is full, you’ll be offered an alternative time or place to train.

Once your appointment has been confirmed you’ll receive an email that set out guidelines that you must read & adhered to whilst using the gym. You’ll also need to take your staff card with you each time you use the gym to sign in.

If you don’t have membership of the UW fitness suite facilities but would like to join then please download the membership form using the link below & email it to wellbeing@worc.ac.uk. The cost of staff membership is now £16.95 per month & includes access to both the Sports Centre & McClelland Centre gyms. The membership fees are deducted from your salary each month which you can stop at any time. You are not tied into an annual contract.

If you had gym membership but don’t want it reinstated then please contact the Payroll Manager, Michelle Lewis & ask for the deductions to be stopped. This will be done with immediate effect.

We very much look forward to welcoming you back to the gym, keeping you safe & well during these challenging times!
