  • Effective as of Monday 2 August, visitors wishing to use the gyms at either Harcourt Hill or Headington are no longer required to book in advance to do so.


    Please note that while pre-booking will no longer be required as of Monday 2 August, a one way system will remain in place with hand sanitising stations available. We also ask that visitors continue to wear face masks or coverings when not taking part in exercise or physical activity.
    Our team have been working hard in moving equipment in our facilities so that gym users have adequate space to exercise safely. 
    As of Monday 17 May, indoor group classes have restarted and are bookable via our app and website. You can find a copy our current timetable here

    Use of face coverings at Brookes Sport is in line with the whole university, with the wearing of masks and coverings being mandatory in all public communal spaces. Students and staff of Oxford Brookes University with exemptions are able to claim a sunflower lanyard without proving the university with any personal details.


    Official guidance remains that masks should not be worn during sport or exercise.
