How to join (Changes to how you access the Fitness Suite Sept 2014)
All new members are now required to complete the Health Commitment Statement (HCS) which is replacing the old Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q). The HCS reflects the Government policy and legal trends which recognise that individuals can make their own informed decisions about their own health and wellbeing. The HCS seeks to get an individual active by giving you responsibility for your own health.
What to do next
If you are a regular fitness suite user then you can fill out a HCS form in the Sports Centre or print one off and bring it to the sports centre.

Keele Sports Centre is committed to offering opportunities for everyone to play sport regardless of their age, gender, disability, and ethnicity.
It is our intention to create a range of sporting opportunities for disabled students to fulfill their potential whilst studying at here at Keele. While we accept that it is not always provide a service in all sports, particularly team sports mainly due to lack of demand. Through close partnership with the County Sports Partnership, Sport across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent (SASSOT), and many local National Governing Bodies such as the Football Association and Great British Wheel Chair Basketball Association we are able to link with local clubs to ensure that all of our students are afforded the opportunity to participate.
These opportunities are also not limited to students with disability but are also open to their friends and colleagues also.
Once or twice a year we run a disability sports event which is open to all members of the Keele community and local schools which are also invited. This gives everyone the opportunity to try out a variety of sports including ;- Blind Football, Table Top Cricket, Bocca, Goal Ball, Wheel Chair Basketball and Sitting Volleyball. This list is not exhaustive and we are always open to any suggestions for new sports to include in these events. Each sport will ensure that a pathway to participation is open to all those that want to get involved.
Most of the Sports Centre is fully accessible and the staff are very friendly and on hand for any questions you may wish to ask.
For those wish to compete for their University BUCS (British Universities’, Colleges Sport) Is very committed to the improvement of disability sports and giving the students the ability to achieve to their highest level. BUCS have a dedicated disability officer Dave Pageant. If you would like to know more about what BUCS is doing to develop opportunities for disabled students and how you can help please contact email@example.com or 0115 846 8044.
