At this stage, the following providers, who have been teaching classes at the sports centre, will continue to run activities online or at alternative venues. Please contact them for more information: 

A message from our Unitec Sports Centre whānau

The Sports Centre team have shared these messages:  

“The announcement that Unitec Sports Centre is closing will come with great sadness to many, and we recognise that it has been an important and valued part of Mt Albert for many years. On behalf of all the staff at Unitec Sports Centre (Andrew, Richard, Lesley, Rob, Michael, Joe, Patrick, Dee, Jake, Sarah, Irina and Dani) we want to thank you for being part of the vibrant sports centre community. We hope you valued your time here as much as we did, and we wish you all the best for your future fitness journeys.” 

Richard Couldrey, Gym Team leader: "Having been at the Centre for many years I have seen many changes, but what hasn’t changed has been the strong sense of community in the gym. Truly ‘a real gym for real people’, (as our motto once said), which I think made it special. The sports centre family (both members and staff) have made it a great place to work”.  

Andrew Lenton, Team Leader: "I have had a great 2.5 years at the sports centre. I worked at several other gyms previously, but none compare to the sports centre. The vibe between all the great members and staff was special. Most of all, I am proud of the staff for always going above and beyond to create such a great environment and, especially, seeing two of my former students (Dee and Joe) grow and develop during their time here. It’s sad to say goodbye to the sports centre and members, but the one thing that’s constant is change and I wish you all the best for your next gym/fitness adventures!"
