Our Be Well card was previously known as a Lifestyle card. If you have a Lifestyle card you can continue to use it as normal, you do not need to apply for a Be Well card.

What's the Be Well card?

Everyone booking or taking part in any activity at our 7 leisure centres in Wigan and Leigh needs a Be Well card (previously known as a Lifestyle Card).

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

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

There are two Be Well memberships available:

  • A free Be Well card that entitles you to book activities and facilities at your local leisure centre
