How to use the booking system

The booking system at The Edge allows members to complete a variety of actions.

Check out our guide on using the booking system.


Members and non-members need to register to use the booking system for online bookings and the management of their own account.

Those who already have an active membership will need to register with the same email address that they have used for their membership account.

Please note – University Of Leeds students will need to enter their student number where a ‘card number’ is requested.

From the login page, existing registered users will be able to login or retrieve a forgotten password.

Non-registered users have two options

1. Existing Edge Member Registration

This option is for existing Edge members that have not already registered for the booking system. This will link the booking system to your membership record. The information you provide will be used to match to your existing Edge membership account.

You will need to enter the information exactly as it is in your membership account.

2. Non-Edge Member Registration

This option is for non-members and those new to the organisation. This option will create a booking system account that will enable online booking and payment.

Activation emails will be automatically sent. You must click on the activation link within 24 hours in order to activate your account.

Online booking

There are various search filters that can be used to identify specific sessions: If you highlight the ‘classes’ tab then studio classes and swim sessions will be displayed. If you highlight the ‘activities’ tab then sports hall sessions will be displayed for Badminton, Basketball and Squash.

Please note: if you do not select ‘activities’ or ‘classes’ no availability will be displayed, if you select both, it will populate a list of everything available for both categories.

Bookings page

A list of bookable sessions is then displayed with details of time, date, location, duration, available spaces and cost.

Example of classes on the booking system

The ‘i’ button – will show you further details about each session as well as detailed descriptions of class activities.

‘Notify me of a space’ – when a session is fully booked you can choose to be notified when a space becomes available, this will then notify all customers by email that select this option, the space will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

‘Add to basket’ – this allows you to add the class or activity to your basket, a confirmation email will then be sent to your registered email address as well as being updated in the ‘My bookings’ section of your account.

Once in the basket, you can click ‘pay now’ to check out (as a non-member this will take you to the online payment screen to verify pay details)

Once you hit ‘pay now’ to complete the transaction a confirmation screen will appear. For non-members, at this point you’ll be asked to enter your payment details.

A confirmation email will also be sent to your registered inbox, the email also gives you the option of automatically adding the booking to your personal calendar.

Adding bookings to your calendar will help you to manage your bookings and ensure classes and sports hall bookings aren’t missed.

Quick book

The ‘quick book’ option allows you to instantly add a booking to your account without using the checkout process when payment isn’t necessary

Quick book option will only appear for eligible members that are logged in.

You will need to agree to the booking terms and conditions if it is your first time or if the terms have been updated since your last booking. A confirmation email will be sent to your email address.

My bookings

The ‘my bookings’ section will display an in-depth list of bookings made in the past and future. You can customise the view to filter your bookings at specific locations or over certain periods of time.

The ‘my bookings’ section also provides the option to either cancel a class in the future and/or rebook a class. Please ensure you cancel your bookings no later than one hour before the activity start time.
