The Winchester Fitness and Sports Club is a sports and fitness club for people age 50 and over. The Club has been in existence for over 30 years and currently has over 300 members. There is no upper age limit and although most members live in the Winchester area membership is not restricted to local people.
While some members are people who have played sport all of their lives, many others are new to sport and some just want to keep fit in a sociable and friendly environment.

The Club is entirely self financing with its income being generated from the annual membership fees, small amounts of interest and the additional fees charged for certain activities. The sessional entrance fee (£3.40 from 1st April 2019) charged by River Park Leisure Centre does not form any part of the Club’s income. Most of the Club’s expenditure goes on providing equipment, the cost of fees paid to instructors and on the cost of social activities.
For more details on the Club’s organisational arrangements, see the Club Constitution which is available on request from Members of the Committee.
On each Tuesday and Thursday one member of the committee is designated as the duty person whose responsibilities are to place all of the equipment in the corner of the sports hall prior to the start of the session and to put away, or ensure somebody else has agreed to take responsibility to do this, and lock-up at the end of the session. The latest list can be found on the news page.
