Fusion Leisure Centres offer huge discounts to Over 50s Forum members

Unlimited classes/ gym / swim from just £29 per month (off-peak) or £39 a month (anytime access) by direct debit (NOTE: offer open only until 25 June)

£390 annual membership works out at £8 a week

Many more 50+ classes to be added in next few weeks

Fusion is offering huge discounts to Forum members.  
The annual £390 pass works out at just £8 a week for unlimited classes /gym /swim as well two racquet sports bookings per week.

Monthly direct debit offers are: Unlimited classes/ gym / swim from just £29 per month (off-peak) or £39 a month (anytime access).

(see below for exact details)

These offers are open to all members of The Enfield Borough Over 50s Forum who live in the borough. But Forum members need to sign up with Fusion before Friday 25 June 2021 to take advantage these monthly direct debit offers.

The heavily discounted annual membership rate for Forum members is just £390 (available to purchase until April 2022) which equates to just £32.50 a month or about £8 a week.

These deals offer access to all Fusion’s centres in Enfield (in contrast to Fusion’s cheapest rate called ‘Core’ which is just swim and gym at one centre only, for £34 a month.)

Fusion in Enfield is keen to attract Forum members back into its leisure centres. A spokesman says: “We have some membership offers specifically for you and we are also pleased to announce that in the next couple of weeks we will increase our 50+ offering to include up to 35 specific 50+ activities.”

So Forum members who use – or want to use – the Fusion Leisure Centres more than once a week should sign up for these special Fusion deals now to save money immediately.

Fusion also continues to offer Pay as You Go discounts. This means Forum members can buy the concession card (sometimes called the energy card) for £7.50 a year instead of the standard price of £21.50. With this card you will get a discount of 30%, so paying £5.60 for a swim/gym session/ class instead of £8.

Remember that all activities need to be booked online in advance. And you need to show proof of up-to-date Forum membership to get these discounts.

So make sure your Forum membership is up to date – or join the Forum now to gain access to these amazing deals (details below). Anyone aged 50 and over can join the Forum for just £11 a year, but note that these discounts are available only to residents of the London Borough of Enfield.

News from May

The gyms and swimming pools at Albany, Edmonton, Southbury and Southgate leisure centres run by Fusion for Enfield Council are open. Current government guidance suggests that all Covid restrictions will cease on 21 June but obviously that is subject to change.

Forum members receive discounts at Fusion leisure centres as long as they are residents of the Borough of Enfield. If the people you speak do at the Fusion leisure centre do not know the details, ask them to call their colleague Trevor Prescott.

All activities must be booked in advance online.

Are members of the Over 50s Forum still entitled to concessions?

Yes, Fusion is offering concessions to members of the Over 50s Forum on the pay-as-you-go option. This means Forum members can buy the concession card (sometimes called the energy card) for £7.50 a year instead of the standard price of £21.50. With this card they will get a discount of 30%, so paying £5.60 for a swim/gym session/ class instead of £8.

How do Over 50s members ensure they get the discount now that all bookings are online?

Members need to go to www.fusion-leisure.com and select a preferred centre in Enfield and register with their name and address etc. Then they should go into that centre, show their Over 50s Forum membership card and renew or buy their annual concession card. This information will be added to their online registration so that they will then pay only £5.60 for activities they book.

When are the Over 50s Days returning?

Fusion would like to see this very successful scheme up and running again as soon as possible. Unfortunately, by its very nature, an Over 50s Day involves people gathering and socialising as well as exercising. Fusion is looking at launching a ‘remodelled’ Over 50s Day, so do check back with your centre. And specific Over 50s classes are already running.

What about Forum members who pay Direct Debit (DD) monthly?

Fusion has set up a range of options for people who wish to pay monthly direct debit. The greater access – in terms of the number of centres, time of day and activities – the higher the cost. There are no special discounts for Forum members under this option. Visit the Fusion website or go into your local Fusion leisure centre and ask to see the options.

What about Forum members who had /have an annual pass?

All Fusion annual memberships were frozen during lockdown and re-activated when the centres re-opened. Fusion has extended end dates to backdate for the loss of time during the lockdown and advises all annual members to ask the reception team for confirmation of their end date so their annual membership and any benefits that might be associated with it do not expire. The cost of the annual pass has been held at £390 until April 2022 for Forum members.

What provision are you making for people who are unable to access online booking facilities?

The Forum is still awaiting an answer from Fusion. Call in to your local Fusion Leisure centre to find out more. Or ask a friend / neighbour to check our website for you.

If you have more questions about Fusion, especially about day to day operations and Covid-19 measures, please go to your local centre or visit the website and see Frequently Asked Questions.


Check the Fusion website for the most up to date information or visit your local centre. NOTE: All activities will need to be booked in advance and online.

Statement from Fusion, 24 July 2020
Following the government announcement that leisure centres may reopen, we have been analysing the safety and financial challenges ahead. The Covid crisis has had a huge financial impact on the sector and UKactive have confirmed that projected footfall and income will be significantly down over the next year, whilst operating within the new guidelines.

We are working with Enfield Council to look at the options for a phased return of leisure centre provision, but we do not expect all activities at all facilities to resume immediately. At this stage we will not be opening on the 25th July. However, please be assured, we are working closely with Enfield Council to assess the situation and will bring you news as soon as possible. We know your leisure facilities are really important for your health and well-being and we want them open again as soon as they are safe and viable, so we hope that you will bear with us during this time.

As a registered charity, Fusion is supporting the #SaveLeisure campaign launched by Community Leisure UK urging the UK Government to commit circa £800m relief funding to enable the full reopening and recovery of the public leisure sector. Without this dedicated relief fund a third of all public leisure facilities in the UK may not reopen and half will face permanent closure by the end of the year. To find out more about this campaign and ways you can support, click here.

Please stay tuned for more information, we will be in touch as soon we have an update for you.

Cheaper fitness for members

Forum members enjoy reduced rates at the council leisure centres run by Fusion Lifestyle

graphic: fusion logo

We are continually getting messages about keeping our minds and bodies active in order to stay healthy and happy as we grow older. The Forum heartily endorses these sentiments so we try and offer our members as many incentives as possible to get out and about in the borough – and further afield.

One major advantage of joining the Forum (for just £11 a year) is that, if you are an Enfield resident, your membership entitles you to reduced prices at the council’s leisure centres which are run by Fusion.

Take your Forum membership card along to one of the Fusion centres and buy an annual Energy concession card for just £7.50 instead of £21.50. Then you are eligible for discounts which in most cases means half price for swims/sauna, using the gym and talking part in classes and other activities.

Annual membership is £390 instead of £506 and there are even cheaper annual/monthly offers if you are able to visit the centres during off-peak hours.

Fusion runs Over 50s Days in all the centres which cost just £4.50 (instead of £9) for Energy concession card holders and enable attendees to take part in all the activities including swim, gym, walking football / netball, pilates, yoga, badminton, aquafit and even dancing on some days. See below for a list of centres and their timetables

You can just turn up on the day – no contract, no signing up. It is a great way to meet new people as well as taking the chance to try out new activities – or get back to old ones you used to enjoy.
