Coronavirus (Covid-19) Information

Sports at Bangor

As many of you are aware, Canolfan Brailsford is still providing a service to the NHS as a Rainbow Hospital. Bangor University Sport are working behind the scenes to make sure we are ready to offer a sports and fitness programme when we are allowed to do so. We are aiming at having a programme of activity for students, staff and members of the public during September. We will closely monitor the situation and the guidance presented to us and work with all governing bodies to ensure re-opening standards are met.

All the relevant refunds have been calculated and memberships have been refunded/frozen until we have a sporting offer.

We are now reviewing how we can re-introduce outdoor exercise and will keep you up to date as soon as these services become available.

Keep an eye on our social media platforms for further updates.


I’m afraid we will not be in a position to refund memberships until we re-open. Currently our building is being used to support the local community and the local health board as a field hospital. However if you are entitled to refund we promise you will get one. 

Direct Debit Members 

All payments were frozen for April and May. We will continue to freeze payments month on month until we re-open. 

When we re-open we will consider the first DD collection date i.e. if we re-open in the middle of the month we may not process the payments until the start of the following month in order to give members the days back they missed when the centre was closed (20th March – 1st April) 

Staff Salary Payments 

All payments have been frozen from 1st April until we re-open. Staff members’ payments will automatically re-start when we open, no need to renew membership. 

Monthly/ Annual Members/ 9 Month Student Memberships / Other 

We will add closure period/exact days onto your gym memberships or refund based on your expiry dates. 

Brailsford Hospital Build – All Customers 

I’m sure many of you have seen in the local press there have been some considerable changes to the sports centre facilities due to the university supporting the local health board and our centre being used as a field hospital. Rest assured once life returns to normal,  Canolfan Brailsford will be providing the same service as before and our facilities will be made good to serve Bangor university students, staff and the local community for all your sporting needs. Keep an eye on our website for monthly updates and social media channels for weekly news.
