Your card is your key – no card means no entry

To ensure you have the best experience possible at The Edge, from the 14 October 2019 we will be improving the way we manage card access to our facilities. To be fair to all of our members, you will need to bring your Student ID or Membership Card for every visit to gain entry.

This is part of our commitment to improve your experience. By introducing this we aim to reduce queuing times to give you quicker entry to facilities and give staff more time to assist you during your visit. It will also help to reduce the misuse of cards by preventing customers from giving their card to visitors who have not paid to use the facilities, this will help us to make it fair for everyone.

For more information please contact edgemembershipservices@leeds.ac.uk.

Thank you for your understanding.

Changes to Pay-As-You-Go Prices

The Edge

After careful consideration, due to increases in our operational costs such as energy and staffing, and additional facility investment we will be making some small changes to our pay-as-you-go prices. We have worked hard to develop a simplified pay-as-you-go offer and this is the first time we have increased certain prices since opening The Edge in May 2010.

We have ensured we have kept a discount for the University staff and student community, as well as maintaining our quality and price within the market place.

We have retained our 12 for 10 swimming pass offer, meaning a single swim will only cost you £4.58, at any time, if you are a University of Leeds staff or student non Edge member.

Please click here to see the newly revised price list, which will come into effect from Augst 1st 2019.

For more information and enquiries about the price changes please contact sport@leeds.ac.uk

If you are are a regular pay-as-you-go user, why not take out an Edge membership with prices starting from as little as £22.62 per month, or £190 per year. Make a saving on all your weekly visits to The Edge! Contact the Membership Team for more information.

Changes to Edge Memberships

Edge weights room

From 1 August 2019 we will be introducing some exciting new changes to our current Edge membership offer!

Edge Club membership – gym and swimming pool access times are changing

Edge Club members; you can enjoy your usual 6:30am – 12 noon (last access 11:30am) weekday access and now also all weekend! That’s 7:30am – 9pm on Saturdays and Sundays! We are removing the 2-4pm weekday slot and hope you enjoy the additional hours of weekend use.

If you are an existing Edge Club member and don’t want to change your current access times, don’t worry we have you covered; just get in contact with us and your current Edge Club membership will continue as normal. Please email the Membership Services Team.

Remember the access times referred to are only for swimming pool and gym access. If you have Edge Club membership you can still access other activities such as group exercise classes, squash, climbing etc. anytime during the full week (subject to availability and booking).

 

We will stop selling Edge Club Extra as a membership

From 1st August Edge Club Extra will not be available for sale or membership renewal. We will only be selling our newly improved Edge Club and Edge Club Premium memberships.

However, if you are an existing Edge Club Extra annual or monthly member; don’t worry, your membership will continue as normal until it expires/you cancel it. If you would like to switch over to our newly improved Edge Club and Edge Club Premium memberships please let us know and we can quickly switch you over.

 

No more additional charges for some activities

Previously, if you were an Alumni, Public, NHS Trust or Non University of Leeds Student member you would have had to have paid an additional charge for activities such as climbing, squash and booking sports halls. We want to keep things as simple as possible and give you the full Edge experience, so now these are all included in your Edge membership at no extra charge (subject to booking and availability). So mix up your workout and enjoy a game of squash, badminton, basketball or have a clamber on our climbing wall.

We hope you are as excited about the above changes as we are. If you have any questions about your membership please contact our Membership Services Team, or if you are interested in purchasing a new Edge membership please contact the Membership Team.
