Leisure Fee & Charges

Decision Maker: Chief Executive

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


To change Fusion’s leisure fees and charges.


To approve a preliminary change to Fusion’s  leisure fees and charges to charge £8 for a single visit (pay as you play).

Reasons for the decision:

This is part of the re-opening of leisure centres due to the forced closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic

Fusion do not believe the centres are financially viable without making changes to the Fees & Charges. 

Fusion are working on a more detailed membership review that they will propose in the coming weeks.

Alternative options considered:

Do not reopen Ferry and Hinksey   the pandemic has highlighted the importance of physical activity and by opening we will be getting more people active.


Do not adjust the fees and charges – this is not commercially viable.
