Free access for national sports people

About the FANS scheme

The Free Access for National Sports People scheme (FANS) provides national level sportspeople with free access to participating gyms in Kingston. Members are invited from any sporting discipline recognised by Sport England. 

FANS aims to assist elite athletes in achieving their full potential by reducing the financial burden of training costs.

FANS is administered by Active Kingston. For a list of centres in Kingston where the FANS membership applies, see the Locations page. 


FANS assists all of Kingston’s elite sports people competing at a national level. To be eligible for the scheme you must demonstrate that you are:
  • a current national sportsperson (representing your country in your chosen sport)
  • a Kingston resident for the majority of the year
  • aged 14 years or above

Supporting evidence from your governing body will be required when applying. To find out how to apply, visit How to apply.
