Active Life is a not for profit, registered charity. As the district‘s leading sports, fitness and leisure provider we’re dedicated to improving the fitness, well being and health of everyone in the area. All income is invested back into operating the centres that we manage ensuring you enjoy some of the best possible facilities available. We have a board of voluntary trustees that oversee the provision of the service, supporting the professional management and administration team based in Chestfield.

Where We Are

We are proud to be the leading health and leisure provider in the Canterbury, Herne Bay and Whitstable area. Operating Kingsmead Leisure Centre, Herons Leisure Centre, The Bay Sports Arena, Whitstable Swimming Pool, Whitstable Sports Centre and the Renaissance Gentle Gym; no other provider offers so much choice whatever your age, interests or fitness levels. Our facilities are open to non-members although membership can be a very cost effective way to get the most out of what we offer.

What We Do

We offer a comprehensive range of sports, fitness and health promotion activities delivered through our six leisure and fitness sites. We also recognise that many people within our community are less able or require extra help or support when it comes to exercise. We therefore have a wide range of programmes aimed at supporting the different needs of our community. We also work closely with local and national charities including Porchlight and the Pilgrims Hospice.
