What's the Lifestyle card?

Everyone booking or taking part in any activity at our six leisure centres in Wigan and Leigh needs a Lifestyle card.

Activities include hiring sports courts, taking swimming lessons and joining exercise classes.

We provide you with a Lifestyle card when you become a member at one of our leisure centres.

How much does a Lifestyle card cost?

There are two Lifestyle memberships available:

  • A free Lifestyle card that entitles you to book activities and facilities at your local Inspiring healthy lifestyles leisure centre
  • A Lifestyle card that costs £1.60 a year and gives you huge discounts on a range of facilities and activities at any Inspiring healthy lifestyles leisure centre in Wigan and Leigh. Discounts vary depending on your age and circumstances.
