Cripps operates on a barrier system so you will need to bring your membership card in order to gain access. If you do not have a membership card please phone customer services or visit one of our other centres. Please ring the buzzer by the barrier should you need assistance.
- Cripps is a members only facility, as a result there will no longer be a ‘pay as you go’ option for non-members. The only exceptions are badminton and snooker which can be played at a rate of £5 per hour.
- Cripps will be cashless, this means only debit and credit card payments can be accepted. The only exception is the bar.
- All bookings (fitness classes, badminton and snooker) should be made prior to attending by Booking Online or by calling 01604 634602
- Swimming sessions will be for 16+ only. Family swims will no longer take place. By swiping in via the barrier you are acknowledging that the pool is unsupervised and that you have no medical condition that could impact upon your safety whilst using any of the facilities.
- The new pricing model for salary sacrifice members will be £4 per session for gym, fitness classes and swimming. To sign in please ring the buzzer by the entry barrier and a member of staff will assist you.
Parking for members is available for 50p from 3pm Monday to Friday and all weekend in the two main carparks next to Cripps.
These are accessible through the hospital grounds. In addition, members must display a Trilogy parking permit alongside their ticket which are available from Cripps Recreation Centre.
LImited parking is also available beneath the Cripps Centre accessed from the Bedford Road on a first come first served basis - again this is for members only and will be controlled by a parking permit
The nearest public carparks are St Johns and St Micheals Multi Story Carparks.
