New Online Booking System

Our new online booking system makes booking courts and classes easier, either on the web or using the iscuba app.

The new look online booking option is more intuitive and easier to find classes and courts to book.

You can now add favourite classes to your profile, so that you dont have to search for them and miss out.

You can now pay for your courts and classes online via the new pay portal within the online booking system. On completing your transaction you will receive a confirmation email for your payment and a confirmation email for the booking. Please keep these emails. Over the summer we will be introducing the ability to purchase your membership online and automatically have your membership added to our management system, ready for you to use when you arrive at either facility.

If you are a current student or staff member, you do not need to confirm your password when you login for the fist time. Simply click on the home button.

If you purchased your membership online, we will email you with confirmation of your membership activation. Please note that this is not an automated email so you may not receive it until the following working day, depending on the time that you purchased your membership online. Once you have recieved this email, you will be able to make bookings online.

If you're having difficulty booking online, get in touch with our reception by phoning us on 01273 877125, or email us so that we can help.

Current Student and Staff 

Current students and staff members can access our online booking system, via web booking or the iscuba app, by logging in with their University of Sussex user id (e.g. ab123) and your normal password. Those that have been using the previous online booking system, you will no longer be able to access the new system with your previous username and password combination.

If you are a current member you will be able to see your active memberships. If you have two memberships showing, choose the membership that is currently active. When booking classes and courts, the portal will automatically choose the one that provides you with the best priced option.
