In light of the delay of the opening of Ravelin Sports Centre, we think that it’s important to highlight the alternatives that we currently offer. We have put together this article to showcase the exciting things we are doing over the next few months. 



Let’s talk about memberships. Despite the delay in the opening of Ravelin Sports Centre, we are still offering great value gym memberships for St. Paul’s Gym. Students and staff can sign up for just £7.50 per month, whilst members of the public can sign up for £10 per month. All of our memberships are flexible, meaning that you can freeze, cancel or start up again at any time, so you never have to feel tied in. As part of your monthly membership, you will get unlimited gym access and fitness classes. You can sign up on our website. This moves us on nicely to our next point.


Fitness classes

We are incredibly proud to have extended our fitness class programme. You can view our new fitness class timetable on the UOP Sport App. Classes are held in either St. Paul’s Gym Sports Hall or our squash courts until the new centre opens. If you are a member with us, you can secure your place for your chosen classes by downloading the UOP Sport App and you can book on through there a week in advance. 


Play sessions

We are also proud to offer a range of play sessions, which are free of charge if you are a student and have a gym membership. If you do not have a gym membership with us, you can still attend our play sessions, but you will need to pay £5 for each one you attend. These sessions give you the perfect opportunity to try new sports, make friends and get active. All you have to do is book your place on the UOP Sport App before attending.

We have the following sessions:

  • Basketball - Saturday 8.00am - 10.00am - St. Paul's Gym
  • Dodgeball - Saturday 10.00am - 12.00pm - St. Paul's Gym
  • Squash - Saturday 12.00pm - 2.00pm - Spinnaker Squash Courts
  • Handball - Sunday 8.00am - 10.00am - St. Paul's Gym
  • Softball - Sunday 10.00am - 12.00pm - St. Paul's Gym 
  • Volleyball - Sunday 4.00pm - 6.00pm - St. Paul's Gym
